Many parallels can be drawn between Game of Thrones and Ivy League football, including the fact that 'Episode Nine' is often the most important one of the season.
Harvard is coming into the game as, surprise, surprise, the top ranked team in the Ivy League. Columbia is second to last. I mean, I guess we can wait to see what happens?
Recruited by various football powerhouse schools before coming to Cambridge, Shelton-Mosley established himself as a dangerous offensive weapon with the Crimson.
Most varsity-level sports have cores centered around their upperclassmen. They are the players who have been around the longest and are the most seasoned. But the women’s rugby team at Harvard has only competed at a varsity level for three years, so it has only recently begun to recruit players. As one of the 11 freshmen on the team, Caitlin Weigel has already begun to make an impact due to her extensive background in the sport.
The Harvard women’s rugby team has played in four tournaments this sevens season and for the fourth time, it made it to the semifinals. This time, however, the team went 3-1 en route to the championship game of the Atlanta 7s tournament played at Kennesaw State University this weekend. The Crimson competed against Life University’s A team, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Lindenwood in pool play before competing against Life in the championship game of the two-day tournament.
The Harvard women’s rugby team continued its sevens schedule this past weekend at the Quinnipiac Sevens Tournament in Hamden, Conn.. The eight-team field included West Chester, AIC, Dartmouth, Norwich A, Norwich B, Quinnipiac, and Army. The Crimson went 3-2 on the day, going 2-1 in pool play before losing to Quinnipiac in the semifinals. The team would go on to beat the Norwich A squad in the Cup Consolation game, taking third at the tournament.
After playing their first two sevens tournaments of the spring season, the Harvard women’s rugby team has made two things abundantly clear: the team’s underclassmen are strong, and the Crimson’s defense does not give up many points.
