As the men’s squash regular season comes to a close, the Big Green has placed itself in a position as one of the top eight teams in the College Squash Association eligible to compete for the Potter Cup at the 2018 Men’s National Team Championship in Hartford, Connecticut. Dartmouth has defeated No. 8 University of Rochester, No. 7 Princeton University and No. 9 Yale University in the last few weeks.
Road wins are difficult to come by in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, a conference where all but four teams sport a .500 or above record at home. This weekend, the men’s hockey team went out in search of two of them.
Well guys, we did it.

Perhaps it was fate that Dartmouth and the University of Vermont would come to rival each other in skiing. After all, the two schools are less than 100 miles apart. Both are quintessentially New England universities known for their outdoorsy students. Even their colors — the vibrant Dartmouth green and the bluer, paler UVM green — are nearly the same.
The Harvard Crimson recently published an article entitled, “Wide Open Road for Men’s Basketball in Battle for Ivy League.” The article touched on some important points, including Harvard University’s men’s basketball team’s then-undefeated conference record and the Crimson’s non-conference losses to the College of the Holy Cross, Manhattan College and California State University at Fullerton. However, the article did not mention the Crimson’s shooting struggles, instead arguing that Harvard would “finish with the best record in conference.”
Women’s hockey has faced a tough schedule in the past two weeks, playing both Eastern College Athletic Conference foes and top talent in the country. The team went on a difficult road trip to play two key Ivy League opponents last weekend in Brown University and Yale University.
Miles Wright ’18, co-captain of the men’s basketball team, scored his 1,000th career point against Cornell University this past Friday, making him the 29th Dartmouth player to reach the milestone. Wright, a Boston native and a sociology modified with African and African American Studies major, averages 12.1 points per game, putting him at 14th place in the Ivy League and second at Dartmouth.
Already more than halfway done with the 2017-2018 competitive swim season, Connor LaMastra ’21 has made a huge splash for the men’s swimming and diving team. With 10 wins in various meets and a school record for the men’s 200-yard butterfly, LaMastra has already made a name for himself.
Former men’s soccer coach Chad Riley and the Class of 2018 shared a special connection. The ’18s were the first class Riley recruited as an assistant coach and the first group of players to enter a system with Riley entrenched at the helm after he became head coach in 2013. Three seniors — Matt Danilack ’18, Tyler Dowse ’18 and Wyatt Omsberg ’18 — started games from the get-go, and the Big Green won the Ivy League Championship every season they played on the team.
Going by a single name rather than a full name identifies you as a “somebody.” Think Bono, Ronaldinho and Voltaire.
Dartmouth’s men’s basketball started off the season trying to prove all of the team’s doubters wrong. A panel of media representatives predicted the Big Green to finish seventh in the Ivy League this season, only ahead of Brown University. In addition, just a day before the season was set to begin, Dartmouth’s standout forward Evan Boudreaux ’19 officially announced that he would forgo the 2017-2018 season and play at Xavier University as a graduate transfer for two years, starting next season. With Boudreaux’s All-Ivy second team performance and a 7-20 overall record in 2017, many wondered how the Big Green would turn the team around.
Dartmouth men’s hockey has been successful as of late, toppling some of the best teams in the country and playing very strong hockey. Last weekend, the Big Green went on its yearly “North Country” trip, playing games at St. Lawrence University and Clarkson University. This has historically been a very difficult road trip for the Big Green as the men have only won both away games once in the past five years, during the 2013-14 season. This road trip is one of the key points for the Big Green during the Eastern College Athletic Conference schedule and often serves a benchmark showing how the team is progressing. Both opponents on this road trip have historic backgrounds and are regular contenders in the ECAC.
With the 2018 Winter Olympics kicking off in 11 days, athletes around the world are preparing to travel to Pyeongchang, South Korea for the experience of a lifetime. This year, however, players from the National Hockey League will not be lacing up for men’s ice hockey. For the first time since before the 1998 games, the NHL will not be sending players to the Olympics. Over the course of five Winter Games, the league has had 706 players take the ice for their nations and an average of 141 athletes per season.
