Harvard University Crimson

2021-2022 SEASON PREVIEW

  • The Harvard men and women are the defending national champions from 2020, and they are prepping to be at the top of their game to defend their titles this season.
  • The Crimson women will need to reload in order to finish atop the Ivy League and national standings. They graduated four All-America selections, including three-time national champion Georgina Kennedy, leaving national finalist Hana Moataz and top young American Marina Stefanoni to lead the way.
