Harvard’s sailing team earned strong finishes in each of their three team-races this weekend, taking home fourth place at the interconference Marchiando Team Race, fifth place at the Dellenbaugh Trophy (NEISA Women's Team Race Championship), and 13th place in the BU Trophy Fleet Race.

Trailing at halftime for the first time all season, the No. 22 Harvard football team’s perfect record looked like it could be in jeopardy Saturday afternoon against winless Cornell. That changed just minutes after the Crimson came out of the locker room for the second half. Harvard exploded for three second half touchdowns to coast past the Big Red, 24-10. The Crimson (4-0, 2-0 Ivy), riding high after being nationally ranked this week for the first time in five years, came alive for 14 points in the third third quarter to overcome a first half deficit and keep its perfect record alive.
After a successful performance HYP last weekend, the Harvard men's and women's cross country teams produced another solid effort at the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown this Friday, September 24th. The Crimson topped Ivy League rivals Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Brown.
