A Note to Readers: The Last Supplement of Its Kind, Hopefully

The 2021 “Year in Sports” edition marks a third supplement that The Crimson Sports Board has completed during the hiatus in Ivy League sports. This should, however, be our last in this style. And we are certainly grateful.

Student-Athletes Deferred Enrollment at Markedly Higher Rates than College Students at Large in 2020-21, Crimson Analysis Finds

The aggregate finding of this study is that, out of the entire population of Crimson student-athletes, approximately 40 percent opted to take time off from classes during each of the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters. This rate is roughly twice that of College undergraduates at large (student-athletes and non-athletes alike) who opted for time off from classes in 2020-2021.

With Players Scattered Across the Country, Men’s Hockey Prepares for Uncertain Post-Covid Future

Today, as much of college hockey gears up for Covid-era conference playoffs, Harvard players are training in junior leagues and working out with private coaches in all corners of the country. Like the rest of the Ivy League — which canceled all three athletic seasons due to the pandemic — Harvard has watched from afar as many of its non-Ancient Eight opponents play on with restrictions through a pandemic-stricken season.

A Note to Readers: 365 Days Later

Here we are. It has already been one year. At this time last year, the sports world, along with society at large, came to a halt. College athletic conferences and pro leagues alike faced the ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic, suspending or canceling play all together. Some leagues have since resumed play, but the Ivy League has not.

Another Accolade: Nick Abruzzese, Male Rookie of the Year

The Crimson is not the only entity to give first-year forward Nick Abruzzese post-season accolades: his conference already has. The ECAC labeled him the rookie of the year in men’s ice hockey, thanks to a 44-point 2019-20 campaign. The conference also reserved spots for the first-year forward on the all-ECAC First Team and the ECAC All-Rookie team.

Women’s Ice Hockey Drops Game Two to Yale in Overtime, Setting Up a Decisive Game Three Tomorrow

In the overtime session, Harvard funneled many chances to the net. The Crimson forced Yale junior goaltender Gianna Meloni to make a couple of semi-breakaway saves, outshot the Bulldogs 7-3, and earned a power play as well. Nonetheless, Yale withstood the pressure and found a game-winning goal from junior forward Tess Dettling on a backdoor feed from sophomore forward Claire Dalton. A decisive game three awaits after the Bulldog 4-3 victory.

Women’s Ice Hockey Clinches Home Ice in the ECAC Quarterfinals with Narrow Weekend Sweep

Despite having beaten Rensselaer (RPI) and Union by multi-goal margins in January, Harvard faced significant resistance on the road in Upstate New York. Nonetheless, the Crimson (15-11-1, 14-5-1 ECAC) managed to add a third-period insurance goal against the Engineers (0-31-1, 0-20-0 ECAC) and notched a sudden-death overtime winner against the Dutchwomen (5-22-5, 5-12-3 ECAC).

No. 10/10 Women’s Ice Hockey Falters in Beanpot Consolation, Fails to Continue Saturday’s Late-Game Heroics

Coming off a dramatic comeback win against Colgate on Saturday, Harvard entered the Beanpot consolation looking to add a quality non-conference win to its resume. In an earlier meeting on Dec. 31, the Crimson went on the road to Boston College and soundly defeated the Eagles, pushing the margin to a 7-1 victory over the then top-10 team. In Tuesday’s contest, however, BC capitalized on the opportunity for revenge. After falling to a 3-0 deficit, Harvard only mustered one goal in response as the Eagles soared to a 3-1 victory.

No. 10/10 Women’s Ice Hockey Drops Beanpot Semifinal Tilt to No. 3/2 Northeastern

With under three minutes left in the first semifinal of the 2020 Beanpot, No. 10/10 Harvard had managed to keep the deficit at 2-1 against No. 3/2 Northeastern. The Crimson defense and its junior goaltender Becky Dutton had faced many close calls from the Huskies attack—notably a puck off the post in the third and a series of key saves from Dutton—but seemed to maintain a “bend don’t break” attitude.
