Week 9 Preview: January 18 to January 24

Match of the Week 

MenNo. 4 Trinity vs. No. 2 Harvard

WomenNo. 2 Trinity vs. No. 1 Harvard

On Sunday afternoon, both the Trinity men and women will face their fiercest opponent, Harvard, in the CSA Match of the Week. This is a highly anticipated match after these teams last met at the Howe and Potter Cup finals in 2023. In the Potter Cup, the Trinity men’s team, entering as the sixth seed, had a difficult path to the finals. They won their quarterfinal match 5-3 and their semifinal match 5-4, which set up a showdown with the top-seeded Harvard team. The final was a close fought contest, with Trinity putting up a strong fight but ultimately succumbing to Harvard in a tense 5-4 finish. This year, Trinity, bolstered by new energy and determination, is eager to reverse the outcome. Yet, Harvard is known for their resilience and consistency in such crucial matches, maintaining a strong and steady performance.

The Harvard and Trinity women will continue their battle for the No. 1 ranking. Last year, the Trinity women took down Harvard ending their 102-match winning streak during the regular season. However, in the 2023 Howe Cup finals, Harvard came back to take what was theirs. With grit, strength and stillness Harvard defeated the top-seeded Trinity women to reclaim their status as the No. 1 ranked team for the eighth year in a row. Who will take home the win this season?
