Dear Harvard Men's Tennis,
With Labor Day behind us, Harvard is in full swing and the yard is buzzing with excitement. The Freshmen are beginning to find their way around campus (where is Vanserg Hall?!*) and we had our first practice only a week ago. Below are some photos documenting the kick-off to the 2016-17 school year. If you are having problems viewing these images, you can click on the link above the email.
This weekend is our first fall tournament at Harvard. We are hosting the "Chowder Fest" with Illinois, Texas A&M and Notre Dame. Come out and watch the some great tennis. Harvard will be playing at 1pm on Friday. On Saturday, the singles will take place at noon followed by the doubles shoot-out from 3-5:30pm with all teams competing simultaneously. Finally on Sunday, the Crimson will be in action around noon. Most matches will likely be outdoors at the Beren Tennis Center. (Indoors at Murr if rain.)
Some images from the first few weeks on campus...
1. Lane Leschly moved into Hollis 15 to find this list of former students who have lived in his room. Note 1821 - Ralph Waldo Emerson. And 1821, John Adams, a relation to the former President. Some big shoes to fill...
2. Freshmen Lunch with all the families at Spangler at HBS.
3. Congrats to Lane Leschly who received the National Bill Talbot Sportsmanship Award at the US Open! He joins a long list of Harvard players to win this prestigious award including Xavier Gonzalez, Andrew Ball, Shaun Chaudhuri, Spencer Vegosen and Ashwin Kumar.
6. The sun sets on our first practice. Thanks for all your support to make this season a reality. Hope to see many of you at the matches this year.
