With a fifth-straight Ivy League title and yet another appearance at the NCAA March Madness tournament, Harvard's men’s basketball team is hitting the (literal) money shot.
Due to severe weather conditions that University President Drew G. Faust described as “the snowiest winter on record,” athletic teams have been forced to remain inside longer than usual for practice and conditioning this season.
The choice to walk on to a Harvard sports team has major social and academic implications that non-recruited students might not anticipate before they join, influencing the make-up of their social circles and their course schedules.
Bid documents, released Wednesday, include plans for Harvard venues to host aquatics, fencing, field hockey, tennis, and water polo for the Olympic Games, as well as five others for the Paralympic Games.
Tim Wheaton, a former head coach of the women’s soccer team, will leave in January to become Colby College’s new athletic director.
