HAVERFORD, Pa. – The Haverford College cricket team welcomed its alumni back for a match at Cope Field last Saturday.
Twenty-one former players returned to campus, with graduation years ranging from 1972 to 2014, to join Haverford's current varsity team for the match. The squad split up into three teams of eleven, agreeing to bat twenty overs each. Arunabh Ghosh '03, Thomas Leonard '13, and Tariq Khondker '06 posted the highest batting totals with 30, 22, and 20 respectively. They played against splendid bowling led by Garret McVaugh '04, Reid Sherman '04, Leonard and Neilay Shah '14. All of the alumni had a chance to bowl and bat, each proving that the skills learned on Cope Field never rust.
