Crimson begin four-game home stand

The Harvard women’s volleyball team (8-11; 4-4 Ivy League), which split its recent games with a 3-0 sweep of Brown (Oct. 23) and a 3-0 loss to Yale (Oct. 24), is embarking on a four-game home stand against Columbia (Oct. 30), Cornell (Oct. 31), Yale (Nov. 6), and Brown (Nov. 7).

The Crimson, who own a 4-4 record at home this season, are 4-2 in the past six games and have already tied last season’s win total, when they went 8-18.

A strong performance during this home stand will be critical for Harvard, which currently is in fourth place, and will likely rely on the play of middle blockers Sandra Fryhofer ’12 and Anne Carrol Ingersoll ’12, as well as outside hitter Mikaelle Comrie ’11.

Fryhofer, who leads the Ivy League in hitting percentage, is third on the team in kills. Ingersoll leads the league in blocks, is third in hitting percentage, and second on the team in kills. Comrie leads in kills.

Harvard takes the court again Friday (Oct. 30) at 7 p.m.
