Harvard Athletic Achievements

Shaw was an All-American who, along with Hardin, was an outstanding harrier during the 1967-70 seasons and helped the Crimson to four straight Heps crowns. In total, Harvard won 33 straight dial meets during his varsity career. Coach Bill McCurdy remembers that Shaw “constantly frustrated opponents with his flexibility in race selection and his ability to dominate races from 600 yards through the two mile.
