I’m not sure if I’m allowed to have nostalgia at a time like this. This is the men’s ice hockey’s story, and I am a writer, the ultimate inside-outsider. There’s an otherworldly aspect to the sport that I both understand and don’t — enough that I feel I can write something about it but just enough mystery to keep my eyes glued to what unfolds on the ice.
The baseball team’s first win of the season was a victory in every sense of the word. The pitching, fully commanded by two freshmen, Patrick Peterson ’18 and Sam Fichthorn ’18, left the Bucknell University Bisons scoreless through nine innings. In the final game of the Snowbird Classic in Florida, the team’s offense spread its eight runs across four separate innings, and with the exception of a single fielding error — compared to Bucknell’s five — on the very first at bat of the game, the defense seemed nearly flawless.
It was a mixed weekend for the softball team as they traveled south to Charleston, South Carolina, for the Holy City Showdown Tournament. The team lost both games on Friday — each by a single run — against Liberty University and College of Charleston, but proceeded to shut out Loyola University Chicago and South Carolina State University on Saturday.
Co-captain Gabas Maldunas ’15 and John Golden ’15, the only two seniors on the men’s basketball team, knew that this weekend series may very well have been their last.
If any lesson can be taken from the first weekend of postseason play for the men’s ice hockey team, it’s this: the team’s abilities are not in question, but if they want it, they’re going to have to work for it.
The team swept 12th seed Princeton University this weekend in the first round of the ECAC tournament.
The final weekend of games for the women’s basketball team was fitting for the season, representing the up-and-down nature of gameplay the team has seen in the last few months.
This week, I sat down with Andy Simpson ’15 of the men’s hockey team (17-10-4, 12-8-2), which just swept Princeton University in the first round of the 2015 ECAC Men’s Hockey Championship.
While Wednesday’s warm weather might have been a tease, this weekend will see two more winter teams finish their seasons, and another begins its journey into the postseason.
The men’s hockey team should provide thrilling action as the Big Green looks to repeat last weekend’s victory over an undoubtedly terrified Princeton University squad, and the men’s and women’s basketball teams will look to keep season-ending win streaks alive.
With many spring teams enjoying the weekend across the eastern seaboard from South Carolina to Florida, this week we’ll take one last glance at the winter teams looking to welcome thoughts of spring with wins.
Men’s Hockey vs.
Last week we talked about how it would feel to be a fan of the teams in the Western conference of the National Basketball Association, and this week we will talk about the teams in the East.
Atlanta Hawks: They have one of the best playing styles in basketball.
On Wednesday afternoon, men’s lacrosse dropped its home opener against Sacred Heart University 10-9 on a buzzer-beater.
After finding itself in a close race for second in the first day of the St. Lawrence Carnival, the ski teams pulled ahead with higher placements in the men’s 20K classic and slalom to solidify a strong second-place finish overall. The Big Green earned a total of 782 points and edged the University of New Hampshire by a slim margin of 12 points. Even with the strong second-day finishes, though, the Big Green could not catch the University of Vermont who came away from Lake Placid, New York, with this past weekend’s NCAA East Regional Championship title with a strong lead of 1,001 points.
After months of training and preparation, the men’s and women’s track and field teams capped off their indoor seasons at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships this past weekend at Harvard University. At the end of the weekend, the women finished in fourth and the men claimed sixth in the overall team standings. The teams accumulated numerous top-10 finishes along with two individual champions and two new school records.
You can always tell when it’s the first weekend of a baseball team’s season. The pitchers’ ERAs are largely goose eggs or more similar to their own shoe sizes. The batting averages of a few hitters are impressive, some almost unreal, while others are closer to BACs after a few games of pong. Drawing from just about the smallest sample size you can, the numbers often feel wild and erratic. So what can be done to make sense of the team’s 0-3 series against No. 14 Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, this past weekend?
The men’s basketball team extended its winning streak to three games, besting Columbia University 84-71 and Cornell University 56-45 this past weekend.
The women’s ice hockey team fell to No. 1 seed Clarkson University in the quarterfinals of the ECAC tournament this past weekend. The No. 8 seed Big Green lost the first two games against the Golden Knights by a score differential of 10-1 in the best-of-three round.
For all of the peaks and valleys the women’s basketball team has endured this season, this past weekend’s games carried extra meaning. Not only was it a chance to properly send off the senior class in its final two home games and get back to the .500 win percentage mark for the year, but it also provided an opportunity for a step in a positive direction in the program’s second year under head coach Belle Koclanes. In unequivocally dominant fashion, the Big Green did just that, trouncing Columbia University 60-50 on Friday night and Cornell University 54-35 less than 24 hours later.
This week, I sat down with Jacqueline Crawford ’17 of the women’s tennis team. The team recently jumped to No. 22 in the national rankings after winning the ECAC Championship for the first time in program history. This past weekend, the Big Green women defeated the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 4-3.
The game is steeped in tradition. It is loaded with pride. It ended in a 3-1 victory for Dartmouth, and its all-too enticing teaser of a freshman scoring a goal he predicted in jest beforehand is an appealing story — but the weekend would bring even more highlights.
As February comes to a close, Dartmouth spring sports are ramping up. Nearly half of all Dartmouth sports teams are in action this weekend as we have officially reached the transition period between winter and spring.
For much of their respective histories, it’s been pretty fun rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers or for the Boston Celtics.
