The Harvard wrestling team made a resounding statement on Friday night in its 20-18 defeat of Princeton for the first time in a decade. The dynamic of the sport has allowed for many individual successes over the course of the season but wins like this are a special reflection of team culture and commitment.
“That's been the theme of the season, honestly – people are in and out, so it's kind of like winning anyway we can at this point – it doesn’t really matter what it looks like. Just be tough, go out there, and play for the people that are injured.”

In ‘Game of Inches,’ Harvard Football Drops 21-20 Contest to Columbia; All But Mathematically Eliminated From Ivy League Contention
According to Harvard head coach Tim Murphy, football is a "game of inches". During Saturday’s game between Harvard (5-3, 3-2) and Columbia (4-4, 1-4), the Crimson needed just a few more inches. After opting to kick a 42-yard field goal down by one on fourth and one with just over a minute remaining, Murphy’s faith in his senior kicker, Jonah Lipel, was not rewarded. Instead, a Lions defender got a fingertip on the football, which veered left and clanked off the left upright, shattering the hopes of Harvard’s players and the hearts of the fans who had gathered on a balmy fall afternoon to watch the team play. The 21-20 victory was Columbia’s first at Harvard Stadium since a 28-24 win on Sept. 16, 1995.
