National Recognition for Men's Soccer
Monday's mark the release of the national polls in college sports and this particular Monday was very kind to the men's soccer team.
The team, off to a 4-0 start on the year including win's last week against Boston College, no. 14 Boston University, and Army, is having one of its best starts to the season and now the Crimson are off to a great start in the polls- the team was ranked no. 12 in the nation according to Soccer America and made it to no. 18 in the College Soccer News poll.
In other national recognition, sophomore keeper Austin Harms was named to College Soccer News' National Team of the Week. This recognition comes off a fantastic start for Harms, who has given up only one goal in four games, earning him three straight clean sheets in the process.
Some Ivy League honors were also bestowed on the team. Harms was named the Ivy League player of the week, while freshman Brian Rodgers was named the co-Rookie of the Week for the Ivy League, as he tallied a goal and two assists this week.
Harvard will look to improve on their ranking during their upcoming four game road trip, which includes ACC powerhouse Wake Forest.
