What to Know
- Harvard returns to action a week after dismissing Dartmouth and Cornell in Hanover, New Hampshire. The Crimson downed the Big Green, 191-101, and defeated the Big Red, 201-94. The decisions moved Harvard to 2-1 in dual meets and 2-0 in the Ivy League.
- In the process of earning a pair of victories last week, Harvard set three Karl Michael Pool records. The quartet of Felicia Pasadyn, Kennidy Quist, Adaline Rose Bullock and Mei Lynn Colby established the new standard in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:43.13. Pasadyn later set the new facility record in the 200 butterfly (2:00.10) and then contributed to the record-setting 400 free relay by swimming the opening leg before giving way to Miki Dahlke, Colby and Samantha Shelton (3:24.71).
- The Crimson will face a Columbia side that is 1-1 on the season (1-1 Ivy League) after defeating Penn, 195-105, and falling to Yale, 172-127. The dual meet vs. Harvard is the Lions' third straight home contest to open the campaign before heading to the Rutgers Invitational from Dec. 4-8.
- Harvard will face a Columbia program that it has enjoyed much success against, having gone 33-1 in a series that dates to the 1985-86 campaign. The last time the Crimson took on the Lions in New York, it picked up a 150.50-87.50 decision to open the 2017-18 season.

Harvard has won 14 Ivy League championships in program history.
