Harvard's field hockey team (9-9, 5-2 Ivy) surged late in the season with wins over Dartmouth (3-2, overtime) and Brown (6-0) to secure a berth in the ECAC tournament. There, however, they were eliminated by Yale, 2-1, and so failed to avenge the 3-2 overtime loss they suffered at the Eli's hands early in the season.
Judy Collins '99 led the Ivies in scoring with 19 goals--a new Harvard single-season record, as was her point total of 42. This fall, she also set new Harvard career records for goals (43) and points (102). Collins and Katie Schoolwerth '00 were first team all-Ivy selections, and Collins was a second team all-American.
After a rough 0-4-1 start, the men's team (8-6-2, 3-3-1 Ivy) gathered steam and finished the season with an 8-2-1 run, going undefeated in their last five matches and ending with a 1-0 shutout of Hartwick.
In the final game of his Harvard career, goaltender Jordan Dupuis '99 set the Harvard career save record at 233 saves, breaking the mark of 231 set by Bill Meyers '70. Junior midfielder Armando Petrucelli, who returned to action this year after a layoff, led the side in scoring with 17 points on seven goals and three assists, despite missing the first three games. Petrucelli and senior defender Lee Williams made first team all-Ivy.
The women's side (12-5-1, 6-1 Ivy) closed out a strong campaign by reaching the NCAA Tournament, where they reached the quarterfinals a year ago. Harvard dispatched Central Connecticut State in the first round, 4-1, but in the second round Hartford shut out the Crimson, 3-0.
The netwomen finished second in the Ivy League to Dartmouth. Seniors Naomi Miller, Emily Stauffer, and Jaime Chu were first team all-Ivy selections, as was junior Jessica Larson. Stauffer established a Harvard career record for assists with 36. Goalie Anne Browning '00 recorded a goals-against average of 1.06, second in the Ivies.
An Ivy League Silver Anniversary
The Ivy League, which competes in 16 sports for women, offers more women's sports by far, played by more athletes, than any other conference. Currently the league is celebrating 25 years of female athletic championships, which began in 1974 when the Radcliffe crew won the Eastern Sprints in Middletown, Connecticut. Eight campus events, one at each college, will mark the celebration, which began at Harvard in September and will conclude in April with a symposium in Brooklyn, New York. On display at Harvard was an 8-by-17.5-foot exhibit of 200 photographs and a timeline, depicting the history of women's sports in the Ivy League, that will also travel to all the Ivy schools. More material is available on the Ivy League website, "www.ivyleague.princeton.edu".
