Four of the incoming first-years hail from New York, with two others coming from Pennsylvania, and one hailing from Maryland.

Last season, Harvard (7-8, 4-3 Ivy) made its first appearance in the Ivy League Tournament since the 2017 season and its seventh appearance in program history. The Crimson clinched a bid into postseason play in thrilling fashion, defeating Brown, 15-14, on Senior Day with a last-minute defensive stop. Harvard placed six student-athletes on All-Ivy teams.
