The final full weekend of regular season play will bring the rankings into focus as teams prepare to travel to Boston February 16-18 for the women’s team nationals, and to Hartford February 23-25 for the men’s team nationals.
A full slate of Ivy play highlights the scheduled matches. The No. 1-ranked Harvard women will look to wrap up the Ivy crown alongside their bid for an undefeated regular season against rival Yale and Brown.
On the men’s side, No. 2-ranked Columbia is in the driver’s seat with no losses in the Ivy League; the Lions will face challenges this weekend from No. 7 Princeton and No. 6 Penn. Should Columbia stumble in either or both matches, the door would open to the Harvard men to share or claim the title; Harvard’s only loss in the league was to Columbia, and also will face Yale and Brown over the weekend.
The No. 17 and 19 Dickinson men and women, respectively, will aim to fend off upset bids from No. 19 and 22 F&M as the teams jockey for position in the C divisions for team nationals. Drexel will host three matches over the weekend as their teams take on George Washington, St. Lawrence and Middlebury—the men’s match between No. 12 Drexel and No. 11 George Washington promises to tight.
The final women’s regular season rankings, which determine team draw placement for nationals, will be released after this weekend, while the men’s league will play several more regular season matches over next weekend before its nationals draws are set.
Live Scoring will be available for many matches during the weekend on Club Locker.
