SEASON RECAP: Crimson Defends Ivy League Title
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Jan 01, 2010
“On paper, it seemed like the 2008 edition of the Harvard football team was the class of the Ivy League.
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

Jan 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 :: Sports
Jan 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. While Harvard’s 54-50 win might appear mildly interesting in the box score, attendants of the game know it to be one of the most remarkable comebacks that any Crimson team orchestrated throughout the year.”

COMEBACK TEAM OF THE YEAR: Crimson Follows Cellar-Dweller Season with Ivy Title
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Jan 01, 2010
“After amassing a 2-17 record in 2008, the women’s tennis team had nowhere to go but up. And this season, the Crimson (13-8, 6-1 Ivy) surely flew high, soaring to a share of the Ivy League Championship.”

MALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Quarterback Leads Repeat Title Charge
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
May 30, 2009
“Graduating fifth-year senior Chris Pizzotti is living the high life right now. Having completed one of the greatest Harvard football careers in history, Pizzotti is now vying for a backup quarterback role behind Mark Sanchez with the New York Jets. 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 :: Sports
May 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.”

NOTEBOOK: Defense First in Crimson Victory
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Oct 04, 2009
“BETHLEHEM, Penn.—As the Harvard football team prepared to take the field at Lehigh on Saturday, the Crimson faced uncertainties regarding its banged-up defense, especially in the wake of season-ending injuries to senior Ryan Burkhead and junior Ben Graeff.
Despite the losses, Harvard’s depth of talent has stepped up.
“I think it really starts with our defensive staff—[it] has really done a great job of getting some young kids ready to play, that we hadn’t thought we’d be playing so soon, especially at the defensive end position,” Murphy said. “You also factor in that we have a lot of veteran linebackers but not many have been front-line players. I think they’ve done a good job.””

Fired Up
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Oct 04, 2009
“BETHLEHEM, Penn.—In a contest that could have been a trap game for Harvard football, the only person that felt trapped was Lehigh quarterback Chris Lum.
The sophomore, who was making his first career start, was terrorized by the Crimson defense, which sacked him four times and picked off four of his passes.
Senior linebacker Jon Takamura ran back a fourth-quarter interception 60 yards for a touchdown to ice Harvard’s (2-1, 1-0 Ivy) 28-14 win over the Mountain Hawks (0-4, 0-0 Patriot) Saturday in a non-conference matchup at Goodman Stadium.”

Harvard Disappointed With Macdonald Finish
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Oct 04, 2009
“In the sport of golf, home field advantage goes a long way.
Just ask the Yale men’s team, which walked away with first place at this weekend’s Macdonald Cup on its home turf, The Course at Yale—a course designed by co-founder of the USGA Charles Blair Macdonald in 1926.”

Crimson Suffers Losses to Long Beach State, Hofstra
by The Harvard Crimson :: Sports
Sep 13, 2009
“It was a difficult weekend for the Harvard’s women’s soccer team.
After earning its first win of the season against New Hampshire on Sept 8, the Crimson entered this weekend with high hopes.
But with Long Beach State handing Harvard its first loss of the season on Friday, and Hofstra holding the Crimson down 3-2 on Sunday, the celebration ended as quickly as it started.”
