If this Year in Sports has taught us anything, it is that Harvard athletes are resilient.

This academic year brought the first normal competition since 2020, and we have the honor of showcasing Harvard’s triumphant return to action. Since March 10, 2020, the day that athletics paused due to the Covid-19 pandemic, athletes and teams have endured canceled seasons, solo practices, and constant hits to team morale.

Nonetheless, the Crimson returned to the field, court, pitch, and pool with energy and force, proving this year to be one of resilience. For Harvard fans, it was worth the wait. The two years of perseverance culminated in eight conference championship wins, 17 NCAA appearances, three national championship wins, and individual standouts.

Here at Crimson Sports, we have had the opportunity to chronicle it all.

Throughout the past two years, we all have made sacrifices, as we change our daily routines and deal with our newfound realities. Harvard athletes have had to deal with all the challenges that we have off the field, all the while adjusting to a fundamentally different sports landscape and preparing for a return to intense competition. The determination and perseverance that they have displayed cannot be understated.

This Year in Sports hopes to encapsulate our athletes’ incredible efforts in elevating Harvard athletics despite adversity and proving that, indeed, Crimson sports – and Crimson Sports – is back.
