It was an afternoon filled with frustration and untimely mistakes for the Big Green against Columbia University at Memorial Field on Saturday.

Given how taxing each race can be, the men’s and women’s cross-country teams will compete in three or four important races each season.

In June, athletic director Harry Sheehy announced that Joe Marsh will serve as the interim women’s ice hockey head coach for the 2017-18 season. The announcement came in the wake of head coach Laura Schuler’s appointment as head coach of the 2018 Canadian women’s Olympic hockey team. Schuler’s selection as the head coach for Canada makes her the first former national team player to serve as the team’s head coach at the Olympics. Named Dartmouth’s head coach in 2016, Schuler took over the program from long-time head coach Mark Hudak for the 2016-17 season before temporarily stepping down to lead Canada. Although Marsh will be the team’s third head coach over the last three years, the team remains optimistic about the season and continuing to rebuild and improve after finishing 7-21 overall last season.
It was a day of nail-biting action at Campus Field in Fairfield, Connecticut as the Big Green took down out-of-league foe Scared Heart University 29-26.

But in the end Jack Heneghan ’18 connected with Emory Thompson ’18 twice in the second half to complete yet another sizable comeback.

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.

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.
