Freshman David Ryan comes into the tournament ranked No. 23 in the nation after finishing his debut campaign a perfect 10-0. Ryan competed exclusively at the No. 5 position during the regular season, going 7-0. At the CSA Team Championship, Ryan was moved to the No. 4 position winning all three of his matches.
Sophomore Bryan Koh earned a No. 31 ranking after closing the 2014-15 season with a 10-4 overall record.
Junior Matt Roberts is Harvard's sole entry in the Molloy Cup as the No. 53-ranked player in the nation.
All three of the entries from the women's team will be competing for the Ramsey Cup.
The Crimson is led by the reigning No. 1 player in the country and Ramsey Cup champion Amanda Sobhy. Sobhy closed her historic college career undefeated in team competition with a 10-0 mark for the 2014-15 season. She has lifted the last three Ramsey Cups and is looking to become just the second player to do so four-straight times, since an individual champion was crowned in 1965. The last player to do so was the trophies namesake, Gail Ramsay of Penn State, who did so from 1977-1980.
Freshman Alyssa Mehta enters the tournament as the No. 12 player in the nation after going 10-2 in her first collegiate season.
Junior Michelle Gemmell holds an impressive 13-1 record for the 2014-15 season and is now the No. 16-ranked player in the country. Gemmell was especially impressive during the Crimson's national championship run, going 3-0, including the victory that clinched the 2015 Howe Cup for Harvard.
