Women's Water Polo
Following a seven-game series where it pulled out four wins, Harvard women’s water polo’s upcoming battle against Brown on Saturday will mark its last match before the CWPA Championships next weekend.
Harvard women’s water polo made a splash in the pool during its spring break, securing three consecutive wins at the Arizona State University Invitational. The Crimson’s victories included a dominating 13-10 win over Arizona State University, who were previously ranked ninth in the nation. The Crimson also achieved convincing wins against Marist University and Salem University.
“We did things that I don’t think anyone thought we would be able to do when we first started this journey in the fall, except for our group."
Last Sunday marked the end of a historic record-breaking season for Harvard women’s water polo. The Crimson finished with the highest number of victories and lowest number of defeats in program history, bested rival Princeton for a third time in the semifinal, and advanced to its first championship game, where the team ultimately fell to No. 7 Michigan.
The Harvard women’s water polo team saw its longest series of the season this past weekend, with the Crimson taking on Bucknell and St. Francis, achieving a key victory over No. 21 Princeton, and keeping up with No. 7 Michigan, who is undefeated in conference play.
