In a battle that will likely be for the Ivy League crown, field hockey conference leaders Harvard and Princeton will compete Saturday at the Tigers’ Bedford Field.
The No. 20 Crimson (8-4, 4-0 Ivy League) haven’t won the division since 2004, when the team shared it with Penn. The No. 11 Tigers (9-5, 4-0 Ivy League), on the other hand, have taken the division title 21 of the last 22 times, the one exception being 2005.
Five goals and two broken records complimented the Harvard field hockey team’s 5-0 victory over Cornell on Saturday, as the Crimson extended its winning streak to six games—the team’s longest such streak since 1990.
Competing Saturday in the annual meet, junior Courtney Smith claimed the individual women’s 5K title with a time of 19:07.8. Smith continued her offseason momentum into the collegiate cross country season, edging out two close Yale runners—Frances Schmiede and Emily Waligurski—with times of 19:08.6 and 19:08.9, respectively.
