Reese named all-star
Senior defenseman Dylan Reese has been named to the New England Hockey Writers Division I men’s all-star team for his impressive play during the Crimson’s 2006-07 campaign. Reese and the rest of the all-star squad were formally feted at the group’s annual awards ceremony on Wednesday (April 11) in Saugus, Mass.
The Crimson team captain tallied 18 points on the year (nine assists and nine goals) on his way to being the second most productive blueliner in the ECAC.
This past March, Reese signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League. He has tallied four assists in nine games with the team. Reese was a seventh-round pick by the New York Rangers, Hartford’s parent club, in the 2003 National Hockey League entry draft.
Volleyball drops season finale
The Harvard men’s volleyball team dropped a hard-fought match to visiting Stevens Institute of Technology this past Saturday (April 7), falling 3-0 (30-25, 30-27, 30-27). Harvard wraps up its 2007 campaign with an 11-6 overall record (5-5 league) to fall short of the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association playoffs. The Ducks, meanwhile, grab their eighth-straight to improve to 33-6 on the season.
Playing in their final game in a Crimson uniform, seniors Laurence Favrot and Andy Nelson recorded 10 and six spikes, respectively, while Nelson also finished with a team-high three aces and a block. The team’s only other senior, David Fitz, managed five digs on the afternoon.
