Harvard split their road trip this weekend against two ranked opponents, going 1-1 in the last two matches of the 2017-2018 regular season. The Crimson took down No. 8/8 St. Lawrence on Friday night in before falling to ECAC-leaders, No. 2/2 Clarkson by a score of 3-1 on Saturday evening.
In a weekend that pitted the Crimson against two of the nation’s fiercest opponents, the Harvard women’s hockey team garnered mixed results, coming from behind to tie No. 5 Cornell, 2-2, on Friday, before falling to No. 4 Colgate, 4-0, on Saturday.
Three and a half years ago, high school junior sprinter Gabby Thomas didn’t think she was going to make it as a college athlete. Two wildly successful NCAA seasons and an impressive array of records later, the Thomas now has her sights set on loftier goals: a NCAA national title and the 2020 Olympics.
Harvard will look to rebound to the ways of last year when the team lost just 2 games at home. The Crimson hopes to improve on this home record in the newly-renovated Lavietes Pavilion. Construction finished in September, just in time for the new season.
