Redemption came calling for the long-patient Harvard (9-13, 2-6 EIVA) men’s volleyball team this past weekend, as the team prevailed against the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) (8-16, 2-7 EIVA) to snatch two back-to-back wins.
Goaltender for the Crimson, victor of the Beanpot, and beloved announcer for the Carolina Hurricanes, Tripp Tracy ‘96 has seen it all. Now, beloved color commentator for the Carolina Hurricanes, host of the podcast ‘Digging in with Tripp’, and one of the brightest personalities in the league, Tracy has made a place for himself.
For a crowd that started off the game screaming “Go Fish!”, its constituents ended the match playing a very different game: dodgeball. Electrifying weekend sets between Harvard and Penn State led to amazing plays on the court and free-flying balls off of it –– as onlookers dodged rogue high-speed torpedoes deflected from the action.
In a season of “sweep or be swept,” Harvard men’s volleyball has been keeping with the trend well, though not always on the victor’s side. The team left Charleston, W.V. this past weekend having lost both games 3-0, swept in their first EIVA league games of the season.
With a crowd of just 105 people on a Wednesday night, Harvard men’s volleyball played through one of their smallest home game attendances so far this season – but certainly not the least exciting. The team came into their match against Merrimack under the weight of a two-game losing streak and emerged victorious – in more ways than one.
Harvard men's water polo team finished off their regular season last weekend with a three game stint. It was only fitting to do it at the place the team has favored most: home, sweet home, at Blodgett Pool in Cambridge.
The Crimson (10-4, 4-1 Ivy League) emerged from the long weekend with a three game winning streak. Harvard swept all three opponents, besting Brown (9-7, 2-3) and Connecticut (1-6) on Saturday on a back-to-back road trip, before returning to Cambridge on Sunday to dismantle MIT (3-10, 1-5 NEWMAC).
