Last season, the Harvard men’s lacrosse team had one of its most successful runs in years. The Crimson beat four top-20 opponents en route to a 3-3 record in the Ivy League.
While they missed out on qualifying for the conference tournament, their resume was good enough to earn an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament.
The Crimson fell to Rutgers, 19-9, in the first round, but with a roster chock full of more developed underclassmen, the future looks bright in Cambridge.
What do coach Gerry Byrne and his staff do for an encore? There’s only one way to win big and that is to up the ante.
