On the road for the first time this season, Northeastern handed Harvard its first defeat off of a record-setting 44-point effort from captain Jordan Roland.
This past weekend, the Harvard men’s soccer team continued to struggle in conference play as it fell against Ivy League rival Dartmouth 3-1 at home. After keeping it tied up at 1-1 for a majority of the first half, the Big Green pulled away with goals late in the first and early in the second.
When he lost his shoe between the 400m and 500m mark of the race, he had enough of the unnatural motion and kicked it off, exposing his bare foot to the track.
The teams had outstanding performances this past weekend but could not improve upon their finishes from indoor season. The women’s team finished in second, while the men finished in third.
With excellent performances by the distance team this past weekend, the Crimson should be encouraged heading into Ivy Heps next weekend.
Freshman thrower Sam Welsh is no stranger to success. Coming into his collegiate career with a national title and a state record in the discus and a personal record of 59-1 in the shot put, Welsh was already one of the most decorated throwers in the country. The most surprising thing about Welsh’s success? He had never thrown in a competition until his junior year of high school.
