The No. 12 men's water polo team defeated Harvard 23-9 this past weekend to secure the top seed at the Northern Division Championships and a spot at the Eastern Championships. With the win, the Bears have extended their winning streak to nine games.
The Bears (18-2) took control of the game early and did not grant Harvard (12-12) any opportunities for a comeback. James McNamara '14 led the offense with six goals, five steals and three assists.
The victory makes the Bears the first team to secure a spot at the Eastern Championships, which will be held in Princeton, N.J. Nov. 16-18. For now, the Bears prepare to travel to California for the Santa Clara Invitational this weekend.
Cyrus Mojdehi '12.5 said he is looking forward to building on the momentum of the season and continuing the Bears' dominance.
"Santa Clara will be a great test," Mojdehi said. "It will also be a great opportunity to legitimize our ranking as the number one team on the East Coast."
