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.
It’s a season, for the baseball team, of opportunity. Without a doubt, the seven-time defending Red Rolfe Division Champions have a challenge at their doorstep.
After winning its first Ivy League Championship in 20 years and welcoming new head coach Shannon Doepking last year, the softball team opened what looks to be another exciting season for the program at the University of South Florida’s Wilson-DeMarini Tournament in Tampa, Florida, this past weekend.
The Big Green opened the tournament with a 4-2 upset over No.
For the second consecutive year, the women’s swimming and diving team finished in eighth place at the three-day long Ivy League Championship with 569.5 points, coming 853.5 points behind first-place finisher Princeton University.
The Tigers managed a narrow victory over defending champions Harvard University, defeating the Crimson by 21.5 points to claim the championship title.
The men’s and women’s track and field teams will look to continue their strong seasons at the 2015 Ivy League Heptagonal Championships this weekend.
Seeking to build on a victory that snapped a month-long losing streak one week ago, the Dartmouth women’s basketball team found itself in the toughest portion of its Ivy League schedule — travelling to play the two top-ranked teams in its conference. After losing to the No. 14 Princeton University Tigers by 70-31, and falling to the Pennsylvania University Quakers 63-46, the team will now regroup with an eye on finishing the last four games of the season on a strong note.
In the last week of the regular season, the women’s hockey team lost against Eastern Coast Atlantic Conference No.
This week, I sat down with men’s basketball’s Miles Wright ’18.
Personally, I find the game-winning goal statistic to be over-hyped. Players collect them here and there, sometimes coincidentally in the middle of the game or right after the puck drops if their team’s defense is good enough.
The Big Green men’s basketball team went 1-1 in the last week of its two-week home stand, dropping to Princeton University on Friday 63-56 before avenging a loss to the University of Pennsylvania earlier this season with a victory of 67-62 on Saturday.
Traditionally, the Princeton-Penn weekends have been tough on the Big Green (10-14, 3-7 Ivy). The Tigers (12-13, 5-4 Ivy) now hold a lifetime 147-62 record, while the Quakers (7-16, 2-7 Ivy) dropped to 150-59.
Earlier in the season, the Big Green faced both teams on the road, taking tough losses to Penn 58-51 and to Princeton 64-53.
Just as many students suddenly realize how little time is left in the term, the clock is ticking for many of Dartmouth’s winter teams looking to end their seasons on a strong note or prepare for postseason play.
Like professional NBA stars Pau Gasol and Kevin Garnett, Gabas Maldunas ’15 discovered a passion for basketball during his later years in middle and high school. Despite his upbringing in Lithuania, where basketball is the country’s national sport, Maldunas didn’t take to the sport too quickly, admitting he didn’t enjoy it much when he began playing in the second grade. Still, he continued to play at the insistence of his parents, and years later — after growing to an impressive six-foot-nine-inch height — he found his calling as a power-forward and center like Gasol and Garnett did.
The women’s squash team travelled to Harvard University to participate in the College Squash Association’s Women’s National Team Championships Feb. 13-15. Seeded at the top of the B Division and ninth overall, the team reached the finals for the Kurtz Cup, losing to Stanford University 6-3. Men’s squash has its first round of competition in the CSA Men’s National Team Championships today.
Both the men’s and women’s track and field teams traveled south this past weekend to compete in Boston University’s Valentine Invitational. While the event was non-scoring, both teams finished with strong results in the final meet before the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships, highlighted by a new school record set by high jumper Kaitlin Whitehorn ’16.
The events on Saturday culminated with the 2015 Sprite Slam Dunk, one of the most entertaining dunk contests I can remember. For this edition of “Any Given Thursday,” we decided to share our reactions to each one of these dunks.
