Crimson women's team adds six
Harvard University womens coach Chris Hamblin announced six members of the incoming class of 2020 Tuesday: defender/midfielder Zoe Aigberomwan-Isibor, midfielder/forward Maggie Basta, defender/midfielder Kimaya Cole, goalkeeper Kat Hess and midfielders Lauren Spohn and Meg Tveit.
"We are very excited to welcome the freshman class to the Harvard women's soccer family," Hamblin said. "This talented group of players will bring a diverse set of experiences to the soccer program. The strengths of the freshman class compliment the talents of the returning players, which promises to provide an exciting and competitive preseason."
