Men’s Track and Field

The men’s track and field team split up this weekend, with some athletes heading south to Princeton University’s non-scoring Sam Howell Invitational while the remainder of the team competed in the George Mason Invitational. At the latter event, hosted by George Mason University, the Big Green effort was enough for third place.

In the Howell Invitational, Dartmouth runners took to the track in the 3000-meter steeplechase, the 5000-meter and the 10,000, but only Connor Clark ’17 earned a top-10 finish when he ran the 5000, coming in at 10th. Big Green throwers, who had coasted to easy wins at last weekend’s Snowflake Invitational, faced tougher competition this weekend from Princeton and Villanova University athletes. Lucas Ribeiro ’19 finished third in the discus, while Colin Minor ’18 and Tim Brennan ’17 took second and third in the hammer throw.

In Fairfax, Virginia at the George Mason Invitational on Saturday, the men took first in several events en route to a third-place overall performance in the field of 13. Tim Gorman ’16 turned in a time of 3 minutes 52.56 seconds to win the 1500. In the 110-meter hurdles, Parker Johnson ’19 and Alec Eschholz ’19 finished first and third, respectively.

At Princeton University, Dartmouth women ran and threw against athletes from Ivy foes Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University and Princeton, in addition to others such as Syracuse University. In Virginia, the women’s track team won three events outright and beat out 15 other schools to claim first place at the George Mason University’s Spring Invitational.

Helen Schlachtenhaufen ’17 and Reid Watson ’16 had the best finishes of the Big Green runners at Princeton’s Howell Invitational. Schlachtenhaufen took fifth in the 1500-meter with a time of 4 minutes 34.46 seconds, and Watson’s 16:55.79 in the 5000 netted her third place.

Women’s Tennis

No. 52 women’s tennis (10-6, 1-3 Ivy) had another weekend of Ivy matches, this time away from Hanover. They dropped their match to No. 61 Princeton University (11-8, 3-1 Ivy) on Saturday and then again to No. 74 University of Pennsylvania the next day.

With victories from duos Taylor Ng ’17 and Kristina Mathis ’18 as well as Julia Schroeder ’18 and Katherine Yau ’16, the Big Green took the doubles point from Princeton. Yau then won her singles match, putting Dartmouth up 2-0. However, the Tigers stormed back during the remainder of singles play. They won the remaining five matches, including straight-set victories at the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 6 positions, and prevailed 5-2.

The story was similar against Penn. The Big Green swept the doubles games, but only picked up one win when Jacqueline Crawford ’17 took a straight-set victory at the No. 4 spot.

Men’s Tennis

Men’s tennis jumped two spots in the ITA rankings this week, rising to No. 38. The team defended that ranking this weekend at the Boss Tennis Center, earning a 4-2 win over Princeton University on Saturday and a 4-0 win over the University of Pennsylvania on Sunday. The Big Green improved to 15-8 and 3-1 in Ivy League play.

Dartmouth opened the match by taking the doubles point convincingly. Duos Max Schmidt ’17 and Roko Glasnovic ’19 and Dovydas Sakinis ’16 and Max Fliegner ’18 made short work of their Princeton opponents, winning 6-1 and 6-2. No. 63 pair George Wall ’17 and Brendan Tannenbaum ’16 were up 4-2 on Princeton’s top doubles team when their game was halted. The Tigers struck back with straight-set victories at the No. 2 and No. 6 spots, going up 2-1 on the Big Green. The men closed out the game with victories in the next three singles matches. Schmidt’s 7-6, 6-1 win at the No. 5 position sealed the 4-2 Dartmouth triumph.

The team followed the win over Princeton with a clean 4-0 sweep of the University of Pennsylvania Quakers. Both teams entered the match 2-1 in Ivy play. Dartmouth took five of the first six singles sets and brought home the doubles point.

On Sunday, the team once again quickly defeated their opponent in doubles matches with the third, Fliegner and Sakinis’, being halted. The team won all three of its singles matches, with the other three being halted as well.

Women’s Rugby

Dartmouth women’s rugby traveled to Brown University this past weekend to compete in the NCAA Varsity Sevens tournament. The Big Green fielded two sides — an A-side and a B-side. The A-side finished the tournament 2-2 while the B-side finished 1-1-1.

The A-sides first loss of the day came at the hands of tournament champions, Quinnipiac University. The Bobcats took home its second consecutive varsity sevens win. The Big Green is set to compete at Westchester University next Saturday in the next leg of the varsity sevens series. Dartmouth is also scheduled to host Bishop’s University at home on Saturday for a fifteens match.
