CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Evan Ramsey of the Harvard men’s water polo team has been named the Harvard COOP Athlete of the Week for Oct. 17. The freshman had an impressive all-around performance in a 16-7 win over Connecticut College Oct. 15 and scored a dramatic game-winning goal against Mercyhurst Oct. 16. Ramsey contributed to half of the Crimson scoring output against Connecticut College with a season-high five goals and three assists. He also added two steals on the defensive end in the win. With less than 30 seconds remaining against Mercyhurst, Ramsey caught a lob pass in the middle of the Crimson offensive set and fired past a diving Mercyhurst goalie into the top left corner of the goal to give Harvard a 10-9 victory. The goal was the Irvine, Calif., native’s 12th of the season.
