The Crimson pair each had huge performances in a Harvard win, as part of a split weekend for the defending EIVA tournament champions. The Crimson fell 3-1 to conference leader Princeton on Friday, Feb. 22, and held off NJIT 3-2 the next night. Against the Highlanders, Trevor put down nine kills on an error-free .692 hitting night, and posted 10 blocks with four solo stuffs. The 10 total blocks ties for the third-best performance nationally this season in a five-set contest. He also had eight kills and two solo blocks against the Tigers. Jason had 19 digs against NJIT, which is tied for second this season nationally in a five-set match. He also made just one service-reception error against NJIT, which entered the weekend ranked third nationally with 1.94 aces per set. One night earlier he had eight digs against the Tigers, and he also finished with six assists for the weekend. This is the first EIVA weekly award of the season and career for both student-athletes.
