Nordic Ski Team Serves Those Who Served

If you visited the Weston Ski Track on any given Monday afternoon this February, you would have been greeted by the inspiring sight of disabled veterans learning to ski. Their teachers aren’t just any ordinary ski instructors, though.

Cricket Squad Aims For National Title

The focus around campus might be on the men’s basketball team’s return to the Big Dance, but there’s a more obscure Crimson team that also finds itself on the eve of a national tournament—one that most students probably didn’t even know existed. The Harvard men’s cricket club will be competing for the Chanderpaul Trophy in the American College Cricket National Championships this coming weekend. The championships bring together 28 of the best teams from around the country to Fort Lauderdale at the site of the only sanctioned international cricket grounds in the United States.

The Harvard men’s basketball team got off to a rough start in its home contest against Dartmouth on Jan. 26, ending the first half down by nine after a 7-for-21 shooting effort.

Harvard Alums Help Underprivileged Youths With Football Camp

In Kyle Walczak’s house sits a brick. But this is no ordinary brick, given to no ordinary high school student. In the summer of 2011, Walczak attended 4th and 1, a football camp designed to help underprivileged high school football players improve skills both on and off the field. The brick, a memento that Walczak received from his time at the camp last year, symbolizes more than just time spent at a summer camp, however.

Former Murphy Assistants To Coach in Super Bowl

In 1992, his penultimate year as Cincinnati’s football coach, current Harvard coach Tim Murphy led his Bearcats to a 3-8 finish. Twenty years later, a trio of assistant coaches from that team is preparing to man the sidelines at Super Bowl XLVII, but at the time, Cincy assistants John Harbaugh, Jerry Rosburg, and Craig Ver Steeg hardly looked like hot coaching commodities.
