The men's soccer team brought the Greatest Show on Burnham Field into the national spotlight. The women's soccer team stared down most of the Ivy League, winning overtime thrillers and putting up big numbers. And the rugby team absolutely embarrassed the Ivy League, setting a new standard for how to win.
