After somewhat of a slow start, the Dartmouth field hockey team (4-6 overall, 1-2 Ivy) has shown tremendous promise after picking up their first Ivy League win of the season against Brown University on Sept. 30. In a grueling, nearly four-hour long battle with several lightning delays, overtimes and shootouts, the Big Green managed to come away with a 3-2 victory.
While members of the Class of 2021 were gathering on the Green to circle the bonfire, another longstanding Dartmouth tradition was on display on the chests of current and former Big Green varsity athletes. The varsity letter sweater — knitted in Dartmouth green with a white “D” on the front — is awarded to each student-athlete after earning his or her first varsity letter.
Unlike last week against the University of Pennsylvania and the previous week against Holy Cross University, Dartmouth didn’t wait until the last play of the game to beat Yale University on Saturday.

The women’s soccer and men’s and women’s track and field teams recently announced two new endowed coaching positions. These gifts will enable their respective athletic programs to continue to grow. Stacy Smith Branca ’94, a captain of the 1993 Big Green women’s soccer team, and her family made a $2 million gift to endow the women’s soccer head coach position, while an anonymous donor made a $1 million gift to endow an assistant track and field coaching position.
After devoting 20 or more hours a week to their sport during school, Dartmouth’s student-athletes can find it difficult to fill the gap left by sports once their college careers end. Many try to stay connected to their sports by joining club teams. Others go into coaching, and a small few return to the Big Green as assistants. For some of these coaches, Dartmouth is a stop in the road on a different journey. For others, it’s a more permanent home or a springboard to a coaching career elsewhere.
The women’s rugby team continues to prove itself as a team to watch on the national scene. The team cruised through the most difficult part of their schedule undefeated, pulling out wins against two-time defending national champion and then-No. 1 Quinnipiac University and then-No. 3 United States Military Academy. This strong start comes with no small thanks to the first-years who have joined the ranks, with two women in particular, Idia Ihensekhien ’21 and Lilly Durbin ’21 already establishing themselves as standout contributors.
The Big Green men’s and women’s soccer teams each played at home against Princeton University on Saturday. The women’s game ended in a 2-0 loss for the Big Green, continuing a good season for Princeton and dropping Dartmouth to 4-6. The men won 2-1 with an overtime winner by senior Matt Danilack ’18. The game was Dartmouth’s first Ivy League contest of the season and improved its record to 6-2, putting the Big Green in a great position to compete for a third straight Ivy League championship.
Dartmouth football pulled out a win on the last play to defeat the co-defending Ivy League champion University of Pennsylvania, 16-13, at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Friday night. With only three seconds left on 4th and goal, football head coach Buddy Teevens ’79 dialed up a run. Quarterback Jared Gerbino ’20 took the snap and punched it into the end zone as time expired, leading the Big Green to its third straight victory, improving to 3-0 on the season. With its first Ivy League win under its belt, along with a win against a College of the Holy Cross team that was then-ranked 25th in the FCS Coaches Poll, the Big Green seems to be poised for success going into the heart of its schedule.
Fresh off of a 10th-place finish at the Boston College Coast-to-Coast Battle at Beantown at Franklin Park in Boston, Massachusetts last Friday, Olivia Lantz ’19 is off to a great start this season. Lantz completed the 5-kilometer course in 17:30 against a nationally competitive field, shaving 30 seconds from her time in the same race last year. With a win at the Maria Souther Sanchez Invitational earlier in the season at the Hanover Country Club, Lantz looks poised to contend with some of the best runners in the Ivy League and the country.
The Big Green hit the home links on Saturday and Sunday for the first and only time of the 2017-18 season.

Founded in the fall of 2013 by former members of the women’s swimming team Kendall Farnham ’14, Nina Mascia ’15 Med’21 and Sara Heard ’15, the Dartmouth triathlon team has grown from a small team on a shoestring budget to a team with approximately 30 members, boasting competitors who have excelled at the national level. Katie Clayton ’18, Emma Sklarin ’18 and Sonia Rowley ’19 finished in the top 25 of the women’s 20-24 age group at the USA Triathlon national championship in August and are qualified to race at the 2018 International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Grand Finale in Gold Coast, Australia.
Another week, another win over a top-three national power for the rugby team. Two weeks after narrowly beating defending national champion Quinnipiac University, the Big Green steamrolled the preseason No. 3 United States Military Academy by a score of 45-7. With its first-ever win against Army, Dartmouth is undefeated through the most difficult portion of its schedule.
Following a senior campaign that included a 4:12.56 mile run that qualified for the Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America competition as well as a team award for the greatest improvement throughout one’s college career, Connor Clark ’17 graduated from Dartmouth and headed west to join the University of Oregon’s cross-country team. After participating in the earth science domestic study abroad during his junior fall, Clark retained a semester’s worth of eligibility in NCAA, allowing him to compete as a redshirt senior. He joins a long line of Dartmouth cross-country athletes who have continued their college careers with the Ducks, including Matt Miner ’12, Alexi Pappas ’12, Will Geoghegan ’14 and Tim Gorman ’16.
