This is HARVARD Hockey Tradition

Patty Kazmaier Award

Since helping inaugurate intercollegiate competition more than 150 years ago, Harvard has become synonymous with excellence in athletics and academics. The Crimson boasts one of the oldest and most successful women’s hockey programs in America with 12 Beanpots, seven Ivy League titles, five ECAC Hockey championships and seven NCAA tournament appearances in addition to the 1999 AWCHA national championship.

Since its inception in 1998, Harvard players have captured six of the 11 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Awards, annually presented to the best player in women’s intercollegiate hockey. A.J. Mleczko ’97-99 was the 1999 Kazmaier recipient. Jennifer Botterill ’02-03 earned the award in 2001 and ’03, making her the first two-time winner in the six-year history of the award. Angela Ruggiero ’02-04 was the 2004 Kazmaier Award winner, and Julie Chu ’06-07 won the award in 2007. Last season, Sarah Vaillancourt ’08-09 was the recipient of the highest honor in women’s college hockey.

Academics Harvard is universally regarded as the top academic institution in America and also has the highest graduation rate (approximately 98 percent).

Diversity Harvard students are regular individuals who come from all corners of the country and the world. With Harvard’s diverse student body and metropolitan environment, Black Enterprise ranks it as one of the nation’s top colleges and universities for African-Americans.

Athletics Program Harvard fields the largest Division I athletic program in America with 41 Division I varsity sports. Sports Illustrated placed Harvard in the top 45 of “America’s Best Division I Sports Colleges,” the only Ivy League school to appear in the top 50.

Boston Boston is the unrivaled “College Town, USA” with more colleges and universities than any metropolitan area in the country. The Sporting News dubbed it the nation’s best sports town in 2002, ’04 and ’05.

Olympics

Katey Stone The fourth coach in program history, Katey Stone, the Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey, is now 300-126-19 at the helm of Harvard women’s ice hockey, placing her third on the Division I all-time wins list. In 14 seasons behind the bench, Stone has maintained the rich history and tradition of the Harvard hockey program, leading the Crimson to nine Beanpot championships, four Ivy League titles, five ECAC Hockey regular-season titles, five ECAC tournament crowns, seven NCAA tournament appearances, three NCAA championship-game appearances and the 1999 AWCHA national title.

Success Harvard has 30 seasons of women’s hockey history under its belt and further cements itself as one of the top programs in the nation with each passing year. The 2007-08 version of the Crimson (below) added to that legacy by capturing the Beanpot, Ivy League, ECAC regular-season and ECAC tournament titles en route to its fifth trip to the NCAA Frozen Four. Last season’s squad won an NCAArecord 21 consecutive games, and extended its remarkable streak of consecutive weeks in which it was ranked in one of the two national top 10 polls to 135.

Nine Harvard players have represented either Canada or the United States at the Olympics since women’s hockey was introduced at the 18th Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Angela Ruggiero ’0204, Sandra Whyte ’92 and A.J. Mleczko ’97-99 were members of the U.S. team that captured gold at the 1998 Olympics. Canadian Jennifer Botterill ’02-03 won a silver medal the same year and added a gold medal in 2002. Helping her win gold in Salt Lake City was Tammy Shewchuk ’00-01. Botterill and Shewchuk earned their medals by defeating a Team USA squad that featured Ruggiero, Mleczko and Julie Chu ’06-07. Most recently, Botterill and Sarah Vaillancourt ’08-09 earned gold with Team Canada in the Turin Games of 2006. Ruggiero and Chu were joined on the U.S. squad by Jamie Hagerman ’03 and Caitlin Cahow ’07-08.

2008-09 Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey :: This is Harvard

DREW GILPIN FAUST President of Harvard University Drew Gilpin Faust, an eminent historian and the founding dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, became the 28th president of Harvard University July 1, 2007. Under Faust’s leadership, Radcliffe emerged as one of the nation’s foremost centers of scholarly and creative enterprise, distinctive for its multidisciplinary focus and the exploration of new knowledge at the crossroads of traditional fields. Since coming to Harvard, Faust has continued to write and lecture on the history of the American South and the Civil War. Her sixth book, This Republic of Suffering, forthcoming in 2008, considers the impact of the Civil War’s enormous death toll on the lives of 19th-century Americans. Her fifth book, Mothers of Invention: Women of the Slaveholding South in the American Civil War (1996), was awarded the Society of American Historians’ Francis Parkman Prize, honoring the year’s best nonfiction book on an American theme. As dean of Radcliffe, Faust has been an influential member of Harvard’s Academic Advisory Group, which brings together the president, provost and deans to consider matters

of university policy. A devoted teacher and mentor, she is currently leading an undergraduate seminar on the Civil War and Reconstruction. In the spring of 2005, she oversaw the work of Harvard’s Task Forces on Women Faculty and on Women in Science and Engineering. In 2004, she served on the Allston Task Force on Undergraduate Life. Before coming to Harvard, Faust served for 25 years on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. She was appointed as assistant professor in the Department of American Civilization in 1976, associate professor in 1980 and full professor in 1984. She was named the Stanley Sheerr Professor of History in 1988, then served as the Annenberg Professor of History from 1989 to 2000. She chaired the Department of American Civilization for five years, and was director of the Women’s Studies Program from 1996 to 2000. She was twice honored at Penn for her distinguished teaching, in 1982 and 1996. Raised in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Faust went on to attend Concord Academy in Massachusetts. She received her bachelor’s degree in history from Bryn Mawr College in 1968 and her master’s degree (1971) and doctoral degree (1975) in American civilization from the University of Pennsylvania. Faust has been active both as a member of

nonprofit boards and in a range of professional societies. She is a trustee of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Humanities Center and Bryn Mawr College, where she chaired the trustee committee on student life from 1998 to 2003. She also serves on the educational advisory board of the Guggenheim Foundation. She was president of the Southern Historical Association in 1999-2000, vice president of the American Historical Association from 1992 to 1996 and an executive board member of both the Organization of American Historians and the Society of American Historians from 1999 to 2002. Faust has also served on numerous editorial boards and selection committees, including the jury for the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1986, 1990 and 2004. She is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society and the Society of American Historians. Faust is married to Charles Rosenberg, one of the nation’s leading historians of medicine and science, who is Professor of the History of Science and Ernest E. Monrad Professor in the Social Sciences at Harvard. Faust and Rosenberg live in Cambridge. They have two daughters, Jessica Rosenberg, a 2004 graduate of Harvard, and Leah Rosenberg, Faust’s stepdaughter, a scholar of Caribbean literature.

ROBERT L. SCALISE Nichols Family Director of Athletics Robert L. Scalise was introduced as Harvard’s Nichols Family Director of Athletics in July 2001 after five years as associate dean and senior executive officer of the Harvard Business School. Scalise, the seventh person to hold the director of athletics post at Harvard, oversees the nation’s largest Division I athletics program with 41 varsity sports, two dozen junior varsity teams, more than 1,500 intercollegiate athletes and a broad array of wellness and recreation programs and facilities. In just six years as director of athletics, Scalise has seen Harvard win nine national team championships and 43 Ivy League titles. The 2007-08 season saw Harvard win five Ivy League crowns while the women’s hockey team achieved a number-one national ranking for eight weeks. Under Scalise, Harvard has played host to several high-level NCAA tournaments including the 2006 women’s basketball Final Four at the TD Banknorth Garden and the 2008 men’s lacrosse championships at Gillette Stadium. Harvard will again play host to the lacrosse championships this coming spring. Along with his business background, Scalise has extensive ties to Ivy League athletics as an AllAmerica lacrosse player at Brown and later as head

coach of the Harvard men’s lacrosse and women’s soccer programs. A 1971 graduate of Brown, Scalise was selected three times to the All-Ivy League lacrosse team and twice named All-America and All-New England. He led the nation in scoring (47 goals) as a junior, then co-captained the squad in 1971 when he set a New England record by scoring 11 times against Connecticut while helping the Bears advance to the inaugural NCAA men’s lacrosse tournament. As a senior, Scalise was also the recipient of the Brown University Sportsmanship Award and the Sports Illustrated Award of Merit, and was inducted into the Brown Hall of Fame in 1991. He entered the coaching ranks at Brown in the fall of 1971 as an assistant for the men’s soccer and lacrosse teams. Scalise was just 24 years old when he was named head coach of Harvard’s men’s lacrosse team in 1974. He led the Crimson to the 1980 Ivy League championship — the program’s first league title in nearly two decades — and an accompanying NCAA tournament bid. He coached 17 AllAmerica selections and completed his tenure in 1987 with a 98-79 overall record. Scalise was also the first coach of Harvard’s women’s soccer program, which began varsity play in 1977. He led that team to Ivy League crowns in 1978, 1979 and 1981, and NCAA tournament berths in 1982 and 1984. In 1985, Scalise became

the nation’s first women’s collegiate soccer coach to amass 100 victories. He finished with a 113-38-11 overall record. Scalise left coaching in 1987 to enroll in the Harvard Business School, where in 1989 he was awarded a Master in Business Administration. Later that year, he became director of MBA placement services, managing processes and products serving the Business School community. He held that post until 1992, when he accepted a position at Bain & Company to become director of recruiting, career development and alumni relations. While there, he developed strategic and operational initiatives to build people assets for the firm, and prepared and managed an operating budget of approximately $4 million. Scalise returned to the Business School in 1995 as its executive director of MBA program administration before assuming his current post in the department of athletics. The 55-year-old Scalise was born in New York City and graduated from Uniondale (N.Y.) High School in 1967. He is married to Maura Costin Scalise ’80, an All-Ivy swimmer at Harvard who coached the Crimson women’s swimming and diving team to Ivy League and national prominence during her tenure. The Scalise family resides in Nahant, Mass., and includes four children: Michael (age 19), Mark (17), Matthew (14) and Rosemary (10).

This is Harvard :: 2008 Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey

WELCOME TO HARVARD Since its founding days more than 360 years ago, Harvard has stood as a leader in all aspects of higher education foreign countries, one that brings together a grand diversity of social, ethnic and economic backgrounds.

Student Life

A Broad Curriculum At the foundation of Harvard’s lofty reputation is a liberal arts curriculum taught by some of the world’s great scholars. Nobel laureates and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors teach introductory and Core courses, and all faculty are readily available for students. Now equally well-known for its professional schools, Harvard originally received recognition as the country’s first and finest undergraduate institution. It has long been committed to reforming college curricula and, in fact, the whole elective system began here over a century ago. Today, Harvard maintains its strong commitment to the undergraduate with one of the broadest programs in existence. Students may concentrate in any of 44 fields, including Afro-American studies, computer and environmental sciences, government, classics, and folklore and mythology. The majority of courses offered at Harvard have fewer than 20 students, and most departments feature a “tutorial” system of teaching and learning. Tutorials are directed study courses in a student’s field of concentration, taught either in small groups or individually. Harvard has a graduation rate of over 97 percent, and over 70 percent of students graduate with honors. Nine out of 10 undergraduates who apply succeed in gaining admission to a medical school, with similar rates for other graduate schools. Contributing to these figures are first-class facilities such as a 12 million-volume library that is the largest university library in the world, numerous art and cultural museums, and 25 science/laboratory centers.

to developing leaders among people. Thus, its enrollment is not comprised of 6,700 “geniuses.” Instead, the University prides itself on attracting the best all-around young individuals—those with the energy, innovation and creativity to enliven a classroom. Some students show unusual academic promise through experiences or achievements in study or research. Others are more “wellrounded” and have contributed in many different ways to the lives of their schools or communities. Still others could be called “well-lopsided,” with demonstrated excellence in one particular endeavor. And many students bring perspectives formed by unusual personal circumstances or experiences. The end result is an undergraduate population drawn from every state and many

Both academically and residentially, Harvard College is fully coeducational. The centers of campus life are the residential houses. The house system, established in 1930, provides a small college atmosphere within the university. Each house has several faculty members and a staff of residential tutors associated with it, as well as dormitories, dining halls, libraries, intramural athletic teams and a number of social events. There are 12 residential houses, while a 13th unit, Dudley House, provides a parallel life for the students who live off-campus. All freshmen live in or next to Harvard Yard. “The Yard” is the center of the university, and the hub of Harvard’s activity. Resident adult advisers help students explore the academic and non-academic opportunities of their first year. A wide range of programs are designed especially for first-year students—in the arts, intramural athletics and Freshman Seminars. Students run nearly 200 organizations and programs on campus. Last year, 80 plays and musicals were produced and directed by students. There are men’s, women’s and mixed voiced choruses, plus over half a dozen a cappella groups. Two major orchestras, smaller ensembles, chamber groups and rock bands also thrive. There are two student newspapers and numerous political, feminist, ethnic, cultural and religious journals. A majority of students participate in community service by the time of their graduation, both through the Phillips Brooks House Association and the House and Neighborhood Development (HAND) program.

Faculty Harvard’s faculty is large, diverse, and by any measure, an accomplished group of women and men. Each faculty member is both a noted teacher and scholar, for first-rate scholarship is an essential ingredient of great teaching. Harvard students learn in classrooms and labs from professors who are leading authorities in their fields. In this academic community, all members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, including the most prominent scholars, expect to teach undergraduates as well as graduate students. Faculty members also instruct students outside the classroom. In addition to professors’ weekly office hours, students often spend time with their professors before or after class. There are also many occasions when professors take meals in Harvard’s residential dining halls, attend gatherings in the residences of House Masters, who are themselves senior faculty members, and participate in other programs and special events. Over the course of a year, hundreds of students work closely with faculty members on their own or their professors’ research. The opportunities for formal and informal relationships with Harvard faculty are plentiful and rewarding, resulting in lifelong friendships as well as professional collaborations that can enrich students’ lives and careers.

Facilities 8

Beyond the mentorship of a faculty actively involved in undergraduate life, Harvard students have access to other extraordinary academic resources. By a wide margin, Harvard’s library system, with about 100 central and auxiliary collections and nearly 14 million volumes, is the world’s largest university library. More than two dozen university buildings are used exclusively for scientific research, including laboratories for astronomy; biology; biochemistry; chemistry; computer science; electrical; computer, and systems, and mechanical engineering, geology, as well as physics and applied physics. Harvard’s computing facilities are likewise extensive and state-of-the-art. A fiber-optic data network links labs, libraries and faculty and administrative offices. Students can connect to Harvard’s high-speed data network, the library’s online catalog, the Internet and the rest of the world from ethernet connections in their rooms. Finally, the university’s many museums include one of the world’s most distinguished university art collections and a natural history museum whose scope and importance make it similarly renowned.

The Undergraduate Program Harvard offers students everything necessary for a liberal education in virtually every imaginable field. The sheer number of curricular choices — the catalog includes about 3,500 courses — opens doors for the exploration of widely disparate fields and also for concentration in special areas

of interest. Harvard’s philosophy has long been that an undergraduate education ought to have structure and coherence while allowing for maximum flexibility and individual choice. Each student takes four courses in both the fall and spring semesters. Harvard students spend, on average, 12 hours per week in class and enjoy wide latitude in setting priorities for study and free time. Course choices are made in close consultation with an academic adviser over a week-long shopping period at the start of both semesters. Over the four-year undergraduate program, each student will fulfill the requirements of a field of concentration (on average, half of a student’s total coursework) and the Core Curriculum (about one-quarter of the plan of study). The remaining quarter of a student’s coursework is chosen freely from courses offered throughout the university. These three

components of the undergraduate program together fulfill the fundamental aims of a liberal arts education. There is no firm distinction in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences between undergraduate and graduate courses. Students may progress in the curriculum as rapidly as their preparation permits and may enroll in graduate-level courses in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Most of Harvard’s 10 graduate schools allow students to cross-register and to participate in special programs. A reciprocal arrangement with MIT, our Cambridge neighbor, also permits Harvard students to cross-register in courses offered there. While some of Harvard’s most popular courses are taught in grand lecture halls to accommodate significant student interest, the majority of courses are taught in more intimate settings of 20 or fewer students.

assets are its students. Although they come from many different places and backgrounds and have a striking variety of talents, ambitions and convictions, all possess a passion for learning. That energy can be felt in and out of the classroom. At least as much learning occurs in dorm rooms and dining halls as in labs and course lectures. Because undergraduate enrollment is comparatively small, there are many opportunities to get to know fellow students well. Late night talks and dinner table debates are very much part of the daily experience of the women and men at Harvard College.

Postgraduate Plans Harvard is committed to providing whatever guidance or assistance students may need. Given the university’s extraordinary resources, students’ needs are met swiftly and fully. Perhaps as a result, Harvard’s graduation rate is 97 percent, among the very highest in the nation. Similarly high percentages of graduating seniors and alumni express their satisfaction by stating in surveys that they would attend Harvard if they had to choose a college again. Although Harvard’s academic programs are not “preprofessional” in the sense that they provide vocational training, Harvard students are very well prepared for admission to professional schools (business, law and medicine) and graduate programs. Our students enjoy an extraordinarily high rate of admission to graduate and professional schools of their choice. And Harvard College is almost always

the best-represented undergraduate institution at Harvard’s graduate schools. While some students select fields of concentration commonly associated with certain careers, many discover they can study in areas of intellectual rather than professional interest and still be superb candidates for jobs and graduate schools. At Harvard, students can concentrate in history and go to medical school, or study engineering and earn a graduate degree in law.

Admission and Financial Aid There is no formula for gaining admission to Harvard. Academic accomplishment in high school is important, but the Admissions Committee also considers many other criteria such as community involvement, extracurricular activities and work experience. Last year’s freshman class of 1,650 was culled from an applicant pool of 20,972. Strength of character, ability to overcome adversity, and other personal qualities often play a part in admissions decisions. Grades and test scores are relied on to help assess academic promise, but they are by no means relied on exclusively. Evidence that you are willing and able to take on academic challenges or that you possess strengths not fully revealed in objective information is also of interest to the Admissions Committee. Believing that cost should not play a primary role in the selection of a college, Harvard has worked for many decades to attract students from all economic backgrounds.

Our faculty is committed to admissions and financial aid policies that help us attract a truly diverse student body. We make admissions decisions without regard to a student’s financial circumstances or citizenship, and we meet the full financial need of each student who qualifies for aid. The Committee on Financial Aid determines aid packages — in the form of scholarships, loans, and term-time jobs — based solely on need using a full range of family income and asset information. Over the past several years, Harvard has launched two major financial aid initiatives to benefit all students. As a result, students with financial need will now face less educational debt on graduation and will have more time to concentrate on academic and extracurricular opportunities. These initiatives have featured significant annual increases in the undergraduate schoarship budget, reduced loan and term-time job obligations, and an outside award policy which allows students to use the full amount of their outside awards to reduce loans. Together, with the College’s longstanding commitment to need-blind admissions and needbased aid, these plans will continue to keep a Harvard education accessible to students from all economic backgrounds.

Student Housing Harvard guarantees every student College housing for four years, and nearly all students choose to live on campus for their full

undergraduate careers. All 1,650 first-year students live in or adjacent to Harvard Yard. The Freshman Dean’s Office assigns roommates carefully among 17 freshman dorms. Numerous proctors (adult residential advisors) and deans live among first-year students to help them explore Harvard’s broad academic and extracurricular opportunities. One highlight of freshman year is dining in Annenberg Hall, where all first years gather to eat. Each house has several faculty members and a staff of residential tutors associated with it, as well as dormitories, dining halls, libraries, intramural athletic teams and social events. As sophomores, students move from the Yard to one of the 12 Houses — small residential communities of 330 to 450 students. Each House has its own dining hall, library, common rooms, rehearsal spaces and other resources. Houses also provide students with a wide range of extracurricular programs. A senior faculty member serves each House as a Master. Masters make each House a home by hosting frequent open houses in their private residences and by selecting an extensive staff of both resident and nonresident tutors and faculty fellows. Together, Masters and House staff set the tone for the House in its activities and in its functioning as a close-knit community within the context of a larger college and university

Life Outside the Classroom 10

Extracurricular opportunities at Harvard are virtually unlimited. There are more than 300 official student organizations at the College, and

the number and nature of organizations change constantly as students’ interests evolve. Casual beginners to accomplished masters find opportunities at all levels. You do not have to study music in order to play in a orchestra, nor must you have had experience in drama or journalism to act in a play or write for a student publication. College facilities include concert halls, theaters with large stages and others with more intimate surroundings, dance studios, rehearsal spaces and practice rooms. Creative students may enjoy the visual arts as a satisfying hobby or a serious academic pursuit. There are plenty of opportunities at Harvard to become a journalist, poet, disc jockey, or editor. Several campus newspapers have a wide readership, and there are political, academic, and literary journals to complement the humor magazines, yearbook, and radio stations.

Cultural and Ethnic Initiatives There are more than 50 cultural, ethnic, and international student organizations at Harvard, as well as communities representing nearly every major religion. The Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations sponsors many activities throughout the year that celebrate the ethnic and cultural diversity at Harvard. One of the most anticipated events is Cultural Rhythms, a festival that highlights the talents of Harvard students and offers ethnic foods from around the world. The “Cultural Artist of the Year,” emcees the event, and past hosts have included Queen

Latifah, Jackie Chan, Andy Garcia, and Halle Berry.

Cambridge, Boston, and New England Cambridge combines the attractions of a cosmopolitan city with the charm of a New England town. Organized around traditional town greens, tree-lined squares, and the grassy banks of the Charles River, Cambridge is one of metropolitan Boston’s vital urban centers. One-of-a-kind shops, international restaurants, bookstores, street cafés, and cavernous music stores occupy the streets surrounding the College. Sporting events, theater concerts, and colorful street performers also draw neighbors and visitors to Harvard Square. While Boston is full of history and colonial charm, with its cobblestone streets and colonial church spires, it is also a modern city whose liveliness is apparent in its ranging architectural styles, thriving industries, diverse cultures, and important arts centers. Boston Harbor, famous for its Revolutionary War “tea party,” is home to many new and busy waterfront restaurants and shops. The waterfront also boasts a world-renowned aquarium, science museum, and numerous opportunities to walks through historic districts or cruises to its many islands and recreational areas. Within easy reach of Boston and Cambridge are the beaches of the Atlantic, cozy seaside villages from Cape Cod to Maine, ski slopes, forests, and historical sites recalling America’s past.

ATHLETICS AT HARVARD Leadership and Competitive Excellence in Division I Athletics

14

Women’s ice hockey standout Sarah Vaillancourt was one of 14 Harvard athletes to earn All-America status in 2007-08. She also received the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award as the nation’s top player.

In parallel to Harvard’s educational opportunities, the university provides the student-athlete with the infrastructure and facilities to excel at the highest competitive level. A pioneer of intercollegiate athletics — Harvard and Yale rowed in the nation’s first college sporting event in 1852 — Harvard offers 41 varsity sports and has nearly than 1,500 student-athletes, more than any other Division I school. The position given athletics within the University framework is both idealistic and realistic. Harvard is a member of the Ivy League, along with Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Penn, Princeton and Yale. Under the League’s founding document, the Presidents’ Agreement of 1954, there are no athletic scholarships. Financial aid to student-athletes — as with all students — is based solely on need. This structure has allowed Harvard teams to succeed both within the Ivy League and on a national level. Harvard has won a total of 138 national collegiate championships in 18 different sports, beginning with the men’s track and field title of 1880 and extending to the 2006 NCAA crown in fencing. Alumni of Harvard’s athletics programs have gone on to succeed in Major League Baseball, the

National Football League, the National Hockey League, the National Basketball Association, Major League Soccer and professional tennis tours (WTP, ATP). Still more compete in the Olympic Games, while countless others move on to ownership and management roles in amateur and professional athletics.

2007-08 In Review Harvard continued to remain at the forefront of Division I athletics in a 2007-08 season that saw a return to glory for some teams, while others continued their long legacies of success. Five Harvard teams won Ivy League championships and qualified for NCAA tournament competition, while seven others either qualified individuals or received at-large invitations to their respective NCAA fields. Fourteen Harvard teams finished the season ranked among the national top 25 in their respective sports. Women’s lightweight crew finished sixth in its national championship competition, and the heavyweights, chosen to compete in the NCAA championships for the 11th time in 12 years, ran away with the first varsity eight petite final to finish ninth overall. The fall season saw both Harvard soccer teams grab national attention, as the men were ranked as high as sixth nationally and the women had one of the nation’s best turnarounds of the

Harvard rolled through the Ivy League on the way to its 12th league championship and fourth under head coach Tim Murphy.

by the men’s swimming and diving team, which went undefeated in dual meets and placed itself among the nation’s best. Senior Geoff Rathgeber powered the team, graduating as a 21-time Ivy League champion in 10 events as well as a six-time All-America honoree. The spring featured a return to championship form by the Crimson men’s tennis team, which carved its way to an undefeated Ivy season and enjoyed considerable success against a schedule laden with national powers. There were also plenty of highlights for those teams that didn’t win Ivy titles. The men’s and women’s fencing teams remained ranked in the top 10 all year and finished sixth at the combined NCAA Championships. Meanwhile, the women’s track and field program continued its steady rise by placing fourth at both the indoor and outdoor Heptagonals.

2008-09 Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey :: This is Harvard

ATHLETIC FACILITIES more than 600 Harvard football games as well as hundreds of other athletic and non-athletic events, including Olympic soccer, NFL football, rock concerts and political rallies. The Stadium is a horseshoe containing architectural elements of a Greek stadium and Roman circus and is considered an engineering marvel. It was the world’s first massive reinforced concrete structure and the first large permanent arena for American college athletics. With a seating capacity of 30,323, Harvard Stadium is praised for its outstanding sightlines. The Stadium was upgraded in 2006 with the addition of a FieldTurf playing surface, permanent lighting and a removable all-weather bubble which allows for use of the facility throughout the calendar year.

Jordan Field Harvard supports its varsity student-athletes with a wide range of playing, practice, training and strength and conditioning facilities. The majority of the athletic facilities are located in the Soldiers Field complex, located on the Boston side of the Charles River, a short walk from most of the Houses. The facilities range from the oldest — and according to many, the finest — college football stadium in the nation to a relatively new indoor squash and tennis center. 16

Beren Tennis Center The Beren Tennis Center is the outdoor home of Harvard’s men’s and women’s tennis programs. Following the facility’s renovation in 2000, the Beren Center is among the finest outdoor facilities in college athletics. The center boasts 18 courts, including six that feature stadium seating, a two-tiered pavilion with locker rooms, a media center, offices and court-viewing areas. The Beren Center is a perennial site for NCAA tournament competition, including the first two rounds of both the men’s and women’s tournaments in 2004 and the women’s tournament in 2005. The facility is named for Robert M. Beren ’47 MBA ’50, who was instrumental in both the creation of the center in 1983 and its recent renovation.

Blodgett Pool Blodgett Pool was a gift of the late John W. Blodgett, Jr. ’23. Regarded among the finest collegiate swimming facilities in the nation, it serves as the home of Harvard’s varsity swimming and diving and water polo teams. The pool has permanent spectator seating for 1,200, and there is room on the pool deck to accommodate 500 swimmers, coaches and officials.

Bright Hockey Center The Alexander H. Bright Hockey Center has been home of the Crimson men’s and women’s hockey programs since 1979. Its pro-style locker

rooms were completely renovated in 2007. Named for former Harvard hockey player Alec Bright ’19, the facility seats 2,800 people, with additional space for some 500 standees. The skating surface is 204 feet long by 87 feet wide.

Dillon Field House Dillon Field House is one of Harvard’s most recognized buildings. It has served the Harvard Athletics community for more than 70 years. The facility houses Harvard’s varsity equipment room and sports medicine center as well as locker rooms and offices for a number of men’s teams, including football and men’s ice hockey. The second floor of the facility features the Dillon Lounge, a multipurpose function room that overlooks the athletic quad.

Gordon Indoor Track & Tennis Center The Albert H. Gordon Track and Tennis Center is one of the foremost indoor track facilities in the nation. The track is a six-lane banked oval with an adjacent 80-yard sprint straight. Inside the track are two long and triple jump pits, a pole vault runway, and multiple high jump aprons. Adjacent to the oval are two throwing circles and a weightlifting cage. Gordon Track has recently been the site of both the Heptagonal Championships as well as the ECAC and IC4A Championships.

One of Harvard’s newest intercollegiate facilities, Jordan Field was built in 2000 and serves as the home of Harvard’s field hockey and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams. The facility was given by Gerald Jordan ’61, a former Crimson football player. The synthetic turf playing surface allows for an inclement weather practice option for Harvard’s other varsity programs. The turf was completely replaced for the 2006-07 academic year. Jordan Field has a permanent seating capacity of 900, with room for portable bleachers as well. A press box can accommodate up to 12 working media members.

Lavietes Pavilion The Ray Lavietes ’36 Pavilion at the Briggs Athletic Center is the home of Harvard’s men’s and women’s basketball programs. It was dedicated solely for basketball in 1982. The seating capacity of Lavietes Pavilion is 2,050. The facility was completely refurbished prior to the 1995-96 season, and more improvements and amenities were added for the 2002-03 basketball season.

Harvard Stadium The centerpiece of Harvard’s outstanding athletic facilities is Harvard Stadium, which has stood as a Boston landmark for more than a century. Harvard Stadium was constructed in 1903 and hosted its first game Nov. 14 of that year. Since then, the Stadium has hosted

Malkin Athletic Center Located on the Cambridge side of the Charles River, just outside of Harvard Square, the Malkin Athletic Center is the home of Harvard’s varsity volleyball, wrestling and fencing teams. The main gymnasium can accommodate 1,400 spectators for volleyball and wrestling, while the fencing programs compete in a facility that is considered one of the best in the world. Built in 1930 and renovated in 1985, 2004 and again in 2008, funding for the initial improvements came from Peter L. Malkin ’55.

McCurdy Track The McCurdy Outdoor Track & Field, which was completed in 1996, provides Harvard’s varsity athletes with a magnificent complement to the Gordon Indoor Track. Enclosed by a wind screen, the facility includes eight running lanes which encompass double runways for long and triple jumps, throwing circles for the shot, discus and hammer, a javelin runway and a multidirectional high jump apron.

Newell Boathouse The elder statesman among Charles River boathouses, Newell Boathouse has maintained its charm, beauty and practicality for more than a century. The home of Harvard’s renowned men’s rowing programs, Newell was built in 1900 and named for Crimson rower and football star Marshall Newell 1894. It was a gift of the Harvard Club of New York. The facility contains two indoor rowing tanks and modern practice equipment, a video room, space to house all the crews’ shells, a workshop, meeting rooms and locker facilities.

Murr Center The Murr Center opened in May 1998 and serves as the home of Harvard’s state-of-the-art indoor squash and tennis facilities. The Murr Center services the entire intercollegiate athletics program. It is a centrally located home for the department’s administration

and also houses a newly revamped strength and conditioning facility with a golf simulator that serves as an indoor training ground for the Crimson’s golf programs. The showpiece of the Murr Center is the Lee Family Hall of Athletic History, which features a timeline of Harvard’s long and rich athletic tradition with free-standing displays of trophies and memorabilia of the nation’s oldest college athletics program.

O’Donnell Field Set behind historic Harvard Stadium, O’Donnell Field is as fine a playing facility as exists in New England. Harvard has played baseball on the site since 1898. The field is named for Joseph J. O’Donnell ’67, MBA ’71, a longtime supporter of Harvard baseball who also played a large role in implementing the Harvard Stadium bubble.. O’Donnell Field was renovated in the summer of 2004 with new dugouts and a new backstop. The facility seats 1,600 spectators.

Ohiri Field Ohiri Field is the home of Harvard’s prominent men’s and women’s soccer teams. The facility is named for Chris Ohiri ’64, a soccer and track standout who succumbed to cancer while attending classes at Harvard Business School. The Ohiri Field complex consists of two separate 120-yard by 75-yard natural grass fields. One pitch is used as the game field, while the other serves as a practice site. Meticulously maintained and groomed for a high level of play, Ohiri Field has been host to a number of NCAA tournament matches in both men’s and women’s soccer.

17

Sailing Center Located near the lower basin of the Charles River on Memorial Drive, Harvard’s sailing center supports the Crimson’s coed and women’s varsity sailing teams. The center features the unique hanging boat storage system that enables solo launchings, a large meeting facility, an instruction room and a fleet maintenance shop.

Soldiers Field Soldiers Field has been the home of Harvard’s softball program since its inception in 1981. Located in the shadow of Harvard Stadium, the field has undergone several renovations in recent years, making it one of the finest facilities in New England. The most recent renovation was completed when spacious new dugouts were added for the 2006 spring season.

Weld Boathouse Weld Boathouse, which serves as the home of Radcliffe’s varsity crews, was donated and built by the George Walker Weld family in 1906. It is an architectural highlight of Harvard and part of the rowing legacy of the Charles River. Weld also hosts Harvard’s recreational sculling and intramural house crew programs. It is located just a short walk from campus and serves as an integral part of the University’s landscape. GoCrimson.com IHW 0809 Media Guide.indb 17

BRIGHT HOCKEY CENTER

18

While hockey at Harvard began 109 years ago at Franklin Park in Boston, the Crimson hockey programs have called the Alexander H. Bright Hockey Center home since 1979. The Bright Hockey Center was dedicated November 19, 1979, when the Crimson men hosted the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. More than 3,000 spectators turned out for the opening of the third new athletic facility in as many years. From 1956 to 1978, the Harvard men played their hockey games at the Donald C. Watson Rink, a facility loved by hockey players for its good, hard ice but cursed by many spectators for its cold temperatures. Harvard made plans for expansion of facilities in the early 1970s with a brand new ice rink to be constructed at Soldiers Field. Costs soared, however, and the project had to be revised. The new rink, estimated to cost somewhere around $5 million, would not be built after all. Watson would instead be renovated. While Harvard men’s and women’s teams played out of local rinks in 1978-79, the “renovation” of Watson Rink took place. Watson’s concrete walls were knocked down and rebuilt 10 feet out in each direction. The wooden ceiling of Watson remained, but a new roof topped it. Named after former Harvard hockey player Alec Bright ’19, Bright Hockey Center seats nearly 2,800 people, up more than 800 from Watson’s capacity. There is additional space for some 500 standees. Longtime Harvard men’s coach Bill Cleary ’56 chose to lengthen the playing surface by five feet to emphasize the skating game he favored. The rink is now 204 feet by 87 feet. Four locker rooms exist beneath the stands, one each for the men’s varsity, women’s varsity, men’s junior varsity and visiting team. They are supplemented by rooms for officials, coaches and equipment storage. The equipment room features a humidity-controled stick room to prevent them from drying out.

In the arena proper, the walls paint a pictorial history of the 30 seasons of the Crimson’s proud women’s hockey tradition. In addition to photos of each Harvard team dating back to the inception of the program, there are photos of each of Harvard’s All-Americans and a trophy case displaying the Crimson’s national and league awards. Hanging from the ceiling at the west end of the arena is perhaps the most prominent statement in the entire building: side-by side banners commemorating the men’s 1989 NCAA national championship and the women’s 1999 AWCHA national championship, as well as Harvard’s Patty Kazmaier and Hobey Baker winners. Numerous banners adorn the rafters on both sides of the ice representing the success that both the women’s and men’s hockey programs have enjoyed over the years: the Ivy titles, the ECAC titles, the Beanpot crowns, the NCAA tournament appearances. Hanging alongside the national championship banners is one with a Crimson “4” – the retired number of former Crimson skater, hockey coach and director of athletics Bill Cleary, which was retired in 2001 and is the only number of any of Harvard’s 41 varsity sports ever to be taken out of circulation. Several aesthetic and functional improvements have been made at Bright in recent seasons, including a complete renovation of the locker rooms and installation of a new, energy-efficient lighting system in the summer of 2007. A new public address and sound system was installed in 2003. New dasher boards, seamless GlassFlex and protective end netting were added a year earlier. In 2008, Harvard will unveil a new video scoreboard, the first of its kind in ECAC Hockey.

JOAKIM FLYGH Assistant Coach • Second Season • New England College ’00 Joakim Flygh is in his second season as an assistant coach with the Harvard women’s ice hockey program. During head coach Katey Stone’s tenure as the head coach of the United States Under-18 Team at the World Championships in January 2008, Flygh guided the Crimson to three victories against Boston College, St. Lawrence and Clarkson. In 2007-08, Harvard became the second team in ECAC Hockey history to complete the conference season with a perfect record (22-0-0). The squad also won the Beanpot, ECAC regular-season and ECAC tournament titles en route to the program’s fifth Frozen Four appearance. Flygh’s off-ice responsibilities at Harvard include coordinating recruiting, monitoring the squad’s academic progress and acting as a liaison between the team and the school’s admissions office. Flygh joined the Crimson staff in 2007 after spending three seasons as an assistant at Minnesota Duluth. There he worked with the Bulldog

defensemen and penalty-kill unit. In Flygh’s three seasons in Duluth, the Bulldogs made the NCAA tournament every year, advanced to the NCAA title game in 2007 and posted a total record of 72-26-9. Over Flygh’s tenure, UMD ranked fourth nationally in goals allowed per game and third in penalty killing. During his first season in 2004-05, the UMD penalty kill allowed just 16 goals in 206 power plays, operating at a 92.2-percent efficiency.

PALMER DIXON STRENGTH & CONDITIONING CENTER

24

The Harvard strength and conditioning department is committed to providing the highest level of athletic preparation for all varsity studentathletes. The primary goal is to maximize the potential of each individual student-athlete throughout his college career. Every student-athlete matters. Each of Harvard’s 41 varsity teams receives comprehensive support and effort from the strength and conditioning staff during designated training times. The strength and conditioning staff works closely with each sport’s head coach to implement the most effective year-round training. Through the guidance of strength coaches, student-athletes develop skills such as discipline, perseverance, goal-setting, teamwork, mental toughness and work ethic. These instill habits that will lead students to better and healthier lives. The cornerstones of Harvard strength and conditioning are intensity and consistency. Harvard runs a full-service program, focusing on strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning, flexibility, recovery, nutrition and injury prevention and management. Strength training emphasizes multi-joint, multi-plane movements such as power cleans, squats and upper-body presses. Rotational movements, balance and stability, unilateral exercises and core training are also priorities. All programs are specialized to match team goals at given times of the year. Speed, agility and conditioning are tailored to the needs of each sport. Flexibility, recovery, nutrition and injury prevention are incorporated into all team training programs. Harvard strength and conditioning is committed to the idea of sound mind, sound body. It honors the values of the university and supports the principles of the Ivy League and the NCAA. The Palmer Dixon Strength and Conditioning Center is one of the premier strength and conditioning facilities in the country. Few, if any, facilities can match Palmer Dixon’s ability to accommodate large teams in such a variety of strength training and conditioning areas with top-of-the-line equipment.

Since its completion in March 2007, Harvard student-athletes have enjoyed training on state-of-the-art equipment in the spacious 24,000square-foot facility. The layout of the building is designed for full-service training for each athlete and team since every aspect of a complete training regiment is housed in the center. Training amenities include: • 24 all-rubber Olympic weightlifting platforms by Sorinex. • 24 full bumper plate sets by Uesaka. • 24 nine-foot Power Racks with three-way chin-up bars by Power Lift. • 24 Olympic benches adjustable from 0-90 degrees by Sorinex. • 24 full sets of iron plates by York. • 24 18-inch step-up plyometric boxes. • 24 dip and chin-up belts. • Two full sets of dumbbells, ranging from three to 130 pounds. • Three Hammer Strength Jammers. • A 21,000-square-foot all-purpose turf floor. • 12 40-yard lanes with cross-lanes every five yards located in the middle of the facility. Athletes engage in footwork, dynamic warmup, dynamic flex, speed and agility training, interval conditioning and dynamic strength training, all in the strength and conditioning center. • 12 pulling sleds by Power Systems. • Speed and agility training equipment storage space. • Indoor and outdoor medicine ball walls measuring 40 feet wide by eight feet high. • 50 medicine balls ranging from one to 20 pounds. • 24 stability balls and stability pads. • A 3,000-square-foot loft filled with 30 pieces of indoor conditioning equipment such as Spinner, Airdyne and stationary bikes as well as treadmills, ellipticals and stairsteppers. • Men’s and women’s locker rooms. • Strength and conditioning offices. Located in the Soldiers Field Athletic Complex, the Palmer Dixon Strength and Conditioning Center sits adjacent to Bright Hockey Center. The facility and the entire strength and conditioning program are managed by a highly trained staff of four full-time coaches. Director of strength and conditioning Craig Fitzgerald oversees the facility along with assistant directors Dan Perlmutter and Tim Mullen and assistant strength and conditioning coach Emily Saul. The Palmer Dixon Center had served as an indoor squash and tennis facility before it was converted to Harvard’s varsity athletics training center in 2007. It is named for William Palmer Dixon ’25, who was a two-time national squash champion, a former president of the Harvard Varsity Club, and a longtime supporter of Harvard’s athletics program.

ECAC Hockey has played the role of both a leader and pioneer during the two decades that NCAA Division I women’s hockey has been in existence. Home to the premier Division I league in the nation, ECAC Hockey boasts a history that gleams with accomplishments. From individual honors to contributions on the international stage, the league and its players and coaches have set a high standard for excellence in the game. League athletes have earned All-America honors 56 times, claimed 32 Olympic gold medals, and won the Patty Kazmaier Award nine of the 11 years it has existed as the designation of the nation’s top player. Membership in ECAC Hockey has changed to meet the needs of the exploding collegiate sport as 24 teams have called ECAC Hockey home since the first championship was contested in 1984. The league’s current roster of teams includes some of the most storied programs in the nation: Brown, Clarkson, Colgate, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Quinnipiac, Rensselaer, St. Lawrence, Union and Yale.

Sponsoring conference championships in 33 men’s and women’s sports and averaging more than 35 varsity teams at each school, the Ivy League provides intercollegiate athletic opportunities for more men and women than any other conference in the country. All eight Ivy schools are among the top 20 of NCAA Division I schools in number of sports offered for both men and women. Since 2000 alone, the Ivy League has produced 15 NCAA national championship teams and seen 39 individuals earn national titles while sending a total of 253 competitors to the Olympic Games. Those 178 athletes earned a combined 67 medals, including 23 gold. This successful competition in Division I athletics is achieved by approaching athletics as a key part of the student’s regular undergraduate experience: with rigorous academic standards, the nation’s highest four-year graduation rates (the same as those for non-athletes) and without athletics scholarships. Ivy athletic programs receive multi-million-dollar institutional support as part of each institution’s overall academic programs, independent of win-loss or competitive records and together with extensive programs of intramural and recreational athletics.

2008-09 Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey :: The Record Book

BEANPOT In the winter of 1978-79, the coaches of the four Boston women’s hockeyplaying schools assembled to discuss the possibility of starting a Beanpot tournament for women. The men’s event had enjoyed tremendous success since its humble start in 1952, and the consensus was that women’s ice hockey in the Boston area might get a boost from a Beanpot of its own. Northeastern’s Paula Dumart provided the leadership with her committee of Dave Clark (Boston College), Mike McKinney (Boston University) and Joe Bertagna ’73 (Harvard). The pot itself was purchased from an antique shop in Essex, Mass., before being mounted on a wooden base. The first tournament was won by Northeastern in March 1979, and the Huskies repeated in 1980. The event remains one of the highlights of the local women’s ice hockey season and provides all participants a goal to shoot for from the start of the season: the title of Best in Boston.

THE PROGRAM

82

Harvard women’s hockey has come a long way in the three decades since starting out wearing used skates as a club program. The Crimson has gone on to win a national title, finish as NCAA runner-up three times and have its players earn the nation’s top individual honor in six of the 11 years it has been awarded. The program at Harvard began in the fall of 1977 when a group of undergraduate women formed a team as a club sport under the tutelage of former Crimson goaltender and current Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna ’73. As an underfunded program, the team was relegated to using used equipment. With limited numbers, the team had to fill its holes by recruiting family and friends to supplement the roster. The dedication paid off as the team achieved varsity status the following season. It did not take long for the squad to justify its standing. With Bright Hockey Center undergoing construction, the new team could be found practicing at 6:15 a.m. at nearby Buckingham, Browne & Nichols. The early morning workouts set the tone for the teams that followed. Rita Harder took over the reins of the program from Bertagna in 1979, and the young Crimson team quickly gained respect, winning its first Beanpot title in 1981. Harvard secured its first winning season in 1981-82, posting a 15-6-0 record in the first year of the John Dooley era. In his 13 years at the

helm, Dooley posted a record of 162-115-15, which included three regular season Ivy League titles and a pair of Beanpots. Harvard’s best season under Dooley came in 1986-87, when the team garnered a 19-4-0 overall mark and a perfect 10-0-0 record in the Ivy League. The team secured both the Ivy regular-season and tournament titles and earned its first ECAC tournament bid. Katey Stone took the reins from Dooley in 1994, becoming Head coach Katey Stone throws out the first pitch at Fenway Park the fourth coach in the history with members of the 1999 AWCHA national championship team. of the Harvard women’s hockey In 2004-05, the Crimson appeared in its program.

The list of Kazmaier winners has a distinctively Crimson tint as Harvard has captured six of the 11 awards since its inception in 1998. Harvard also leads all programs with 17 top 10 finalists. Now in its 12th year of existence, the inaugural Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award was presented to New Hampshire forward Brandy Fisher. A.J. Mleczko ’97-99 was the winner in 1999 after she led the nation with 114 points. After Brown goaltender Ali Brewer earned the award in 2000, Crimson forward Jennifer Botterill ’02-03, a top 10 finalist in 2000, added her name to the list in 2001. Botterill was the first underclassman and first Canadian to be named the Kazmaier winner. In addition, Tammy Shewchuk ’00-01 was a finalist for the award in 2001, marking the first time that one school had two of the three finalists. The 2003 season marked the second time that Harvard had two of the three finalists. Angela Ruggiero ’02-04, also a candidate in 1999 and 2000, was a top-three finalist, while Botterill became the first repeat winner in the award’s history. Ruggiero made it four for the Crimson when she was named the Kazmaier winner in March 2004 after becoming the all-time leader in collegiate defensemen scoring and helping Harvard to a 109-13-5 record during her career. Nicole Corriero ’05, who set the NCAA singleseason record with 59 goals in 2004-05, was a top-10 finalist in 2004 and 2005. All-America forward Julie Chu ’06-07 continued Harvard’s near-monopoly on the award when she took the 2007 Kazmaier trophy.

Chu led the nation in scoring in her senior year, finishing with 18 goals, 48 assists and 66 points. She was also a top 10 finalist in 2005. In 2008, another Harvard forward won the trophy, as Sarah Vaillancourt ’08-09 took home the award after leading her team to the Frozen Four. Vaillancourt, a top 10 finalist for the trophy a year earlier, concluded her season with 26 goals and 36 assists for 62 points. The All-America junior was also the ECAC and Ivy League Player of the Year and helped the Crimson to an NCAA-record 21-game win streak and a trip to the Frozen Four. Former Harvard standout and 2004 Patty Kazmaier Award winner Angela Ruggiero served as master of ceremonies at the 2008 award dinner. Caitlin Cahow ’07-08 was a top 10 finalist. The award is named in honor of the late Patty Kazmaier, a four-year varsity letterwinner and All-Ivy League honoree for the Princeton University women’s ice hockey team from 198182 through 1985-86. An accomplished athlete who excelled in hockey, field hockey and lacrosse and led the Tigers to three straight Ivy League women’s hockey titles, Patty Kazmaier-Sandt died on Feb. 15, 1990, at the age of 28 following a long struggle with a rare blood disease. Candidates for the award must compete for a women’s intercollegiate varsity hockey team at an NCAA-member institution. Other selection criteria include outstanding individual and team skills, sportsmanship, performance in the “clutch,” personal character, competitiveness and a love of hockey. Consideration is also given to academic achievement and civic involvement. The finalists are chosen by a 13-member selection committee comprised of women’s intercollegiate varsity hockey coaches, representatives of the print and broadcast media and a representative of USA Hockey.

2008-09 Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey :: History

THIS IS HARVARD HOCKEY Harvard hockey represents so many things in my life. It was not only the team I played for, it was and continues to be a part of who I am. It’s a philosophy that you carry about yourself and those around you. It’s about commitment and dedication to a cause greater than yourself — unselfishness and humility, but Nicole Corriero ’05 self-confidence and self-respect. The person I was when I arrived at Harvard and the person I am today are two completely different people, because of Harvard hockey. Our team was more than a group of athletes — we were a family. And not a day goes by that I don’t miss that part of my life. Harvard hockey lives beyond Harvard Yard and Bright Hockey Center and Leverett House; it is a lifelong membership into a family of incredibly gifted, motivated, intelligent and wonderful people who teach you the most important lessons about yourself and inspire you in so many ways to be the best person you can be. 88

Coming into Harvard, I had extremely high expectations. I soon found myself surrounded by world-class athletes, some of the brightest minds of my generation, and some of the most creative and truly enjoyable people I have met. My friends and teammates consistently amazed me with their dynamic interests and personalities. Playing hockey at Harvard gave me the opportunity to experience the best of all worlds: Academically, Harvard is second to none. Athletically, we were in the hunt for a national title every year. And socially, I can’t imagine a place I could have better developed as a person. My experiences far exceeded what I had hoped. Proud as we are of our championships, our Patty Kazmaier winners and our Olympians, the meaning of Harvard hockey runs much deeper. Harvard hockey is about the program — past, present and Angie Francisco ’01 future. The strength of the collection of people who help shape the challenges, growth, and above all else, the positive relationships, is paramount. Being a part of Harvard hockey isn’t a four-year deal. I feel a strong kinship with the players who played at Harvard before me and with the girls who have come after me. I am not finished growing from my Harvard hockey experiences and from being educated by those involved in the program. Harvard hockey will be a part of me forever.

To me, hockey hasn’t just been about winning games, scoring goals or national championship appearances. While I know I will never forget some of those moments, 20 years down the road I’m going to look back at my Harvard experience and Jennifer Sifers ’07 remember my teammates and coaches, roadtrips, team meals and the thousands of hours we spent together down at the rink. I learned a lot about myself and others those four years, and I miss playing on a team with 20 of my best friends.

My Harvard hockey experience was incredible. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be part of such a special program. It was a program that provided me the chance to pursue excellence, and I know that I developed in many ways both as a person and as an athlete. It was Jennifer Botterill ’02-03 a strong stepping stone that helped me improve in college and at the international level. I gained confidence and poise while I was with Harvard hockey, and I made friends that will last a lifetime. I will always remember my days at Harvard and look back so fondly. I often took little “moments of appreciation” just to really enjoy my surroundings — the coaches, the players, the support staff, the entire program was professional, and it brings out the best in everyone. I cannot give enough praise to Harvard hockey and for the important role that it played in helping my future.
