SEASON RECAP: Harvard Struggles in Division Play by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsJan 01, 2010 “The Harvard men’s water polo team showed marked improvement through the 2008 season, but the Crimson could not manage to demonstrate its growth in the win column. The young squad struggled often in its fall campaign, amassing a 5-12 (3-5 ECAC) record before ending the season with a sixth-place finish at the Northern Division Championships at MIT in November. “We’re definitely not satisfied with the outcome this past season,” junior Egan Atkinson said, referring to the regression in the team’s record following a 14-16 effort in 2007. “In terms of the trajectory of the team, though, we’re much better.””

And in reality, the Crimson proved to be just that. Led by fifth-year senior quarterback Chris Pizzotti and a defense with a wealth of experience, Harvard finished this year’s campaign 9-1 (6-1 Ivy) to successfully defend its Ancient Eight title.”
PARTING SHOT: Key Chapters in the Evolution of a Sportswriter by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsJan 01, 2010 “As sports journalists, we get the unique opportunity to explore the pivotal moments in games, seasons, and programs. But no matter the twists and turns, with journalistic integrity on the line we feign indifference, pretending that outcomes don’t affect us even as we affect their perception.”
COMEBACK GAME OF THE YEAR: 22-Point Comeback Stuns Princeton by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsJan 01, 2010 “On the night of Feb. 20 at Lavietes Pavilion, the Harvard women’s basketball team faced Princeton in a must-win game to keep the Crimson in the running for the Ivy League title.

COMEBACK ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Back from Injury, Caputo Doesn't Miss a Beat by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsJan 01, 2010 “Returning from injury has a predictable path—you rehabilitate, take it easy in early contests to shake off rust, and in time hope to return to form. No one has high expectations coming out of the gate. That is, unless you are Louis Caputo.”
COMEBACK TEAM OF THE YEAR: Crimson Follows Cellar-Dweller Season with Ivy Title by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsJan 01, 2010 “After amassing a 2-17 record in 2008, the women’s tennis team had nowhere to go but up.

Samuel P. Huntington by The Harvard Crimson :: NewsJan 01, 2010 “Samuel P. Huntington was not afraid to launch his ideas onto the center of the intellectual stage, even when they sparked controversy.

MALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Quarterback Leads Repeat Title Charge by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsMay 30, 2009 “Graduating fifth-year senior Chris Pizzotti is living the high life right now.

For a guy who’s been part of three Ivy League Championship teams, this is an appropriate punctuation to an already-stellar career.”
PARTING SHOT: Sport and Literature Provide Lasting Life Lessons by The Harvard Crimson :: SportsMay 30, 2009 “It was the most basic of stories—one of the underdog defying the longest of odds. Sports are usually pretty good for that, actually. In the context of running and jumping, catching and throwing, we often derive some greater meaning out of the athletic exploits we engage in (or, as was the case for me, write about). But sometimes, life can be a microcosm of sports, too.”
