A Good Time to Throw The Disc Around

Quasar in Vegas

The Red Line and Quasar traveled to Las Vegas earlier this year to compete against other collegiate frisbee teams from around the nation.

Spring break’s uncharacteristically warm and sunny weather brought hoards of people out of the libraries and into the light, inspiring them to indulge in one of Harvard students’ favorite pastimes—Ultimate Frisbee. And while we all may enjoy a quick pick up game with friends, the occasional wayward toss can turn the Yard into somewhat of a minefield for unsuspecting tourists.

These unfortunate collisions could be a sign that we ought to work on our technique, or maybe just leave the sport to the members of Red Line and Quasar, Harvard’s men’s and women’s Ultimate Frisbee club teams.

Brandyn Curry, a two-time Ivy Rookie of the Week this season, will undergo surgery Wednesday.

He led all Ivy freshmen in assists, steals, and three-point shooting percentage. But perhaps the most impressive thing about guard Brandyn Curry's rookie season—a year in which he earned an honorable-mention All-Ivy selection from while twice being named Ivy League Rookie of the Week—was that he was playing hurt.

Curry said today that he plans to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn left patellar tendon—an injury suffered at the end of his senior year at Hopewell High (N.C.).

Men's basketball coach Tommy Amaker claims that he is staying put on the Crimson's bench, despite rumors of other offers.

The season may have ended nearly two weeks ago for the Harvard men’s basketball team, but the candle is still burning in the office of coach Tommy Amaker.

Finalizing next season’s schedule and fielding calls from NBA scouts has kept Amaker busy as the Crimson men’s basketball coach—a position he doesn’t plan on giving up.

“I’m not looking for anything,” said Amaker, who was listed by one media outlet as a potential candidate for the St. Johns coaching job. “We’re completely happy with what we’re doing here and where we are—and we’re hopeful that the powers that be are happy with me.”

Kate the Great

Kate Buesser was named the team's MVP and a tri-captain for next season.

Ice may be melting around Cambridge, but there’s still time to look back on the hockey season gone by. And that’s just what the Harvard women’s hockey team did yesterday afternoon in Boston.

The squad’s annual awards banquet honored a trio of outstanding players with major awards, and Crimson coach Katey Stone also announced the captains for next year’s team.

SAN DIEGO—Radcliffe...where is that?

Inevitably, whenever the Harvard women's rowing team travels for training or competition we get questions such as, "Is Radcliffe a college or club team?" or "Does Radcliffe still exist?"
