1990 Team Recognized on Alumni Day

Members of the 1990 NCAA championship team gathered with alumnae from the 35 years of women’s lacrosse on April 17 for Harvard’s game against rival Princeton.  Alumnae, family and friends were on hand for the Crimson’s first win over the Tigers since 1992.

At a ceremony during halftime, members of the 1990 NCAA title team were recognized at midfield. Members of the Harvard athletic department handed out DHA sweatshirts to the members of the team and their coach Carole Kleinfelder. The athletic department unveiled three banners, the 1990 NCAA Championship title, NCAA Tournament Appearances and Ivy League titles.

The 1990 women’s lacrosse team defeated Maryland, 8-7, May 20 at Princeton’s Palmer Stadium to win its first ever NCAA title. It marked the second NCAA Championship and first for a women’s sport.

The Crimson finished the season with a perfect 15-0 record, the only undefeated women’s lacrosse team in the nation in any division.

Check out videos from the day, including, highlights from Harvard's 11-9 win, Celebration from the victory of Princeton, Interviews with Sarah Leary '92, Julia French '90 and Liz (Berkery) Drury'93.
