The Scouting Report
Harvard is in contention for its first Ivy League title since 2005–06, in no small part due to the heroic efforts of senior forward Jimmy Vesey. He’s been named the ECAC Player of the Month in both November and January, and in February he emerged from the locker room to see his own shadow, guaranteeing six more weeks of prime ice-hockey conditions. And the more he plays, the more opponents have to fear. For one, he’s the highest-scoring college hockey player in the nation, having netted 48 goals in the past two seasons. But perhaps even more important is his ability to single-handedly reverse the tide of a game. During a January 15 showdown against St. Lawrence, with Harvard down 2–0, Vesey orchestrated a natural hat trick in the span of just five minutes to shift the game decisively in Harvard’s favor.
Championships and distinguished alumni are both part of Harvard's 150-year athletic tradition that traces back to a wrestling match between sophomores and freshmen in 1780. Beyond their four NCAA championships in men's hockey, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, and fencing, Harvard has produced 141 national team championships and numerous Olympians who have faced off against elite competition and in almost every time zone. In addition to winning three conference titles in a row, the men's football team went 9–1 last year, and has won at least seven games in each of the past 15 years, an Ivy League record. The Harvard Crimson women's tennis program accounts for 18 ivy league championships, laying claim to five of them in the past 12 years.
