For the past two years, the Harvard softball team has entered the final weekend of Ivy League play within striking distance of reaching the championship series. Each time, the Crimson has won the first game of a weekend series with Dartmouth and then dropped the final three.
After a slight delay due to rain, the Crimson (28-15, 14-3 Ivy) hosted Dartmouth (29-16, 18-2) on Monday, dropping both games of a home doubleheader after splitting a pair of contests on Sunday in Hanover.
Harvard’s softball team headed to Dartmouth to play a crucial doubleheader on Sunday. The Crimson split the games, winning the first game 2-0 in the eighth inning and losing the second on a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning.
The Crimson went undefeated this weekend against Penn and Columbia, winning three and storming back to tie up a game against the defending conference champion Quakers, which will be completed at a later date.
To say that co-captains Shelbi Olson and Kasey Lange have merely had an impact on the Harvard softball program would be an understatement. In fact, the duo has propelled the Crimson both offensively and defensively for much of their careers.
On a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, Radcliffe heavyweight and lightweight crew both took to the Charles to race against some of the best competition in the world in the 49th edition of the Head of the Charles Regatta.
