After an exciting start to the season, Harvard women’s soccer team began its Ivy League season with a match-up against one of its top rivals for the trophy: Brown. Although the Crimson did not achieve its desired result during that game, the team went on to sweep the opposition for three consecutive matches against conference opponents Columbia, Dartmouth, and Cornell to earn a conference record of 3-1.
The Harvard men’s and women’s cross country teams have had a strong start to the fall season. After competing in the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown, Harvard won both team titles, triumphing over 14 other teams, and had the individual champion in both races as well.
Harvard runners compete in the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships on Oct. 28, 2022. In that event, the women won the conference while the men came second. Led by then-junior Maia Ramsden and then-sophomore Graham Blanks, these Crimson athletes now captain the 2023-24 teams.
The No. 18 Harvard football team has been on the rise in rankings since its first competition against St. Thomas. In its second Ivy League game of the season, the Crimson (4-0,2-0) have defeated Cornell (2-2,1-1) 41-23, continuing to hold onto the title of the only unbeaten Division I football program in New England.
On the back of an outstanding second-half shutout that saw Harvard women’s rugby score seven unanswered tries against Brown in a 48-14 victory, Harvard is now undefeated in NCAA play for the first time since 2021. This win gives the Crimson a seven-game winning streak in 15s, the style of play done in the fall season. Additionally, Harvard now holds a score differential of 280–38 through just five games.
