Needing to rebound after two disappointing home losses to open the Ivy League season, the No. 54 men’s tennis team entered this weekend on a four-game losing streak. It left with two consecutive 5-2 wins, taking down No. 30 Princeton University on Saturday and the University of Pennsylvania on Sunday.
After a narrow loss to No. 56 Princeton University 4-3 on Saturday, the No. 37 women’s tennis team edged out the University of Pennsylvania 4-3 on Sunday on the back of a match-clinching three-set victory by Taylor Ng ’17 at No. 1 singles.The match against the Princeton team (11-7, 5-0 Ivy), which sits atop the Ivy League, proved close from the very beginning, as the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams fought tooth and nail in their matches.
Competing as full-time sprinters for Dartmouth’s track and field team was not what sisters Anna and Sara Kikut ’16 had in mind when they first came to the College. They were formally recruited as competitive ski racers after spending their junior and senior years attending the Green Mountain Valley School, a ski academy in Waitsfield, Vermont.
Surprise! Despite what the weather may indicate, it’s actually April, meaning we’re in the heart of the spring season. Luckily for them, the majority of Dartmouth’s teams will escape the snow by hitting the road this weekend with only women’s tennis and men’s lacrosse sticking around in Hanover. Nevertheless, this should still be a critical weekend as teams try to establish themselves midway through the Ivy League slate.
A loss assigned to a pitcher is — in a perfect world — supposed to indicate fault. At times the loss can be telling of a pitcher’s performance, but it can also be a misleading statistic — a sting felt by no one more than Chris England ’15 last Tuesday after taking the start against Boston College.
A boy from Panevezys, Lithuania, has taken over Dartmouth basketball. No doubt you’ve seen the SportsCenter Top 10 highlight by now — a Yale University player swats a full court in-bounds pass from Miles Wright ’18 out of bounds with 1.9 seconds to play. Down by one, Dartmouth is given one last chance.
The softball team won all four games in doubleheaders against Princeton University and Cornell University this past weekend, breaking .500 for the first time since late February and improving their record against Ivy League schools to 7-1.
After riding an 11-match win streak to an all-time program-high ranking of No. 18 earlier in the season, the women’s tennis team faltered over the spring interim and watched its ranking dip to No. 37 following three consecutive losses.
Facing some of the strongest competition in the Ivy League in the opening weekend of conference play, the No. 54 men’s tennis team fell to No. 22 Columbia University 6-1 on Saturday and lost to No. 51 Cornell University 5-2 on Sunday to bring its overall season record to 9-10 and its Ivy League record to 0-2.
This past Saturday, on a blustery spring morning at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, three riders representing the Big Green equestrian team competed at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Zone 1 Championship. . The trio included Meaghan Haugh ’17, Kate Mahoney ’15 and co-captain Alexa Dixon ’15
After competing in two doubleheaders this weekend, Big Green baseball has concluded its rounds in the Lou Gehrig Division and has established itself as the King of Splits. After playing both Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania last weekend and the first home games of the season this past weekend against Cornell and Princeton Universities, the team finished with a win and a loss in all four doubleheaders thus far.
Nearly 37 years after the Dartmouth Women’s Rugby Club was originally founded, the College will now promote the program to varsity status beginning with the next academic year, athletic director Harry Sheehy announced last week. The decision to elevate women’s rugby will raise the total number of varsity sports at the College to 35, with 17 teams for women, 16 for men and two coed teams.
This week, I talked with men’s Nordic skier Patrick Caldwell ’17. Caldwell had a historic winter season which he capped with a national title in the men’s 10K Freestyle race at the NCAA skiing championships, helping the Dartmouth ski team place sixth at the event, an improvement over last year’s finish.
The men’s lacrosse team dropped its match Saturday at Yale University’s Reese Stadium, falling to the No. 11 Bulldogs 10-4. The loss brings the Big Green’s total record to 3-5, with the team 1-2 in the Ivy League after an overtime win against Harvard University on March 21 and an 8-2 loss last weekend against Cornell University. Between the two Ivy games, the Big Green secured a 16-15 win over the University of Vermont on March 24. .
For the first time this season, the women’s softball team squared off against Ivy League opponents last weekend, playing doubleheaders against the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Spring term has finally arrived and with it the return of some of the Big Green’s most successful programs. The baseball team is looking for its eighth consecutive Red Rolfe Division title, while the softball team is looking to return to the NCAA Tournament and have repeat success at winning the Ivy League Championship, which it did for the first time in program history last year. Fourteen Big Green teams are in action this weekend, and here are some of the marquee matchups.
This weekend, the men’s tennis team will commence the Ivy League slate of its 2015 season. The Big Green, ranked No. 50 by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, will have the home-court advantage as it looks to build on a strong 9-8 pre-conference record heading into Saturday’s match against No. 28 Columbia University and Sunday’s match versus No. 55 Cornell University.
At every high school reunion, you will always find that one jock who peaked in high school and can’t seem to let it go. He always comes back wearing his old varsity letterman’s jacket with his hair combed just a little too perfectly, and he’ll start off every conversation with “you remember the time when...” before delving into some long story no one else remembers. This guy will probably still be reliving the “glory days” at the next reunion — and every reunion after for that matter. Some people just can’t accept that they are on the decline, and they just refuse to exit the game gracefully.
Over the spring interim, the women’s tennis team traveled to California and Texas to compete in five matches with teams from across the country. The Big Green brought home two wins — against the University of California at Irvine and the University of Denver — while falling to California State University at Northridge, Long Beach State University, and the University of Houston. The women now enter conference matches with a 13-3 record and ranked No. 29 in the nation.
How does one write a lede for a string of brutal spring interim away games, an Ivy opening day doubleheader against the defending League champions and a pair of games the very next day which were both decided in the final half innings? (Like that, I guess?)The most interesting development from the jam-packed schedule of baseball is the emergence of somewhat dark horse pitcher Jackson Bubala ’17, who had his first start and appearance against the University of Texas at Arlington in Santa Barbara, California, over the spring interim. Bubala, who had yet to toss a single inning for the Green and White since his arrival as a freshman last year, allowed just one run in six innings on the mound and left the game with the Big Green holding a 2-1 lead. Though relief pitcher Chris Burkholder ’17 ultimately blew the lead, Bubala’s six-inning stretch gave him the capital to secure the final open spot in the rotation for the team’s first Ivy weekend.Bubala took the mound against the University of Pennsylvania for Sunday’s second game after the team lost the front end of the doubleheader. In the day game, a two-run seventh inning for the Big Green knotted the score at three before a walk-off single pushed a runner across home for Penn in the bottom of the seventh. Bubala, starting the nine-inning game immediately after the 4-3 loss, threw another six innings and allowed just two runs — a solid showing despite the fact that his opponent, the Quakers’ Mike Reitcheck, went for seven innings and allowed no runs. Bubala’s two outings so far this year, captain Louis Concato ’14 said, are evidence that the sophomore is being given an opportunity — of which he is taking advantage — to keep his name in the mix for the rotation.Reitcheck was pulled before the eighth as Penn attempted to preserve the two-run lead. In the end, the Quakers burned through four bullpen arms while trying to retain control of the game.A late-game rally by the Big Green’s offense — put together by Justin Fowler ’18, Matt MacDowell ’15, Matt Parisi ’15 and Nick Ruppert ’16 — left Dartmouth ahead by two. Though the Quakers scored in the bottom half of the inning, the Big Green eventually secured the victory. Patrick Peterson ’18 took home the win after throwing the final three and surrendering just one run. Head coach Bob Whalen left Peterson on the mound to close out the ninth inning, a developmental nod to the freshman who has so far had four appearances and racked up a 3.21 ERA.Getting the win in game two, MacDowell said, was huge for the team going forward, especially considering the win as a testament to the team’s ability in the final frames.The split doubleheader came after the team’s opening Saturday against Columbia University — the defending Ivy League champions who bested the Big Green last season in the Ivy League Championship Series. Brothers Mike Concato ’17 and Louis Concato ’14 took the starts, with Mike Concato securing the seven-frame victory in game one. Both brothers gave up four runs, though Louis Concato didn’t receive as much run support as his younger brother. In game one, the Big Green scored five runs and in game two the men only pushed across one run, batted in by Adam Gauthier ’16 who has seen a considerable amount of time behind the plate this year.The baseball team jetted off to California for its annual spring break trip, competing against some of college baseball’s best programs. Of the nine games in California, the team won only one at the tail end of the trip against California Polytechnic University. The team was driven by strong performances by starting pitchers Duncan Robinson ’16 and Mike Concato. Robinson allowed one run on seven hits in eight innings of work, while Concato closed out the final inning and put three up and away to clinch the lone win of the journey. Jeff Keller ’14, last season’s co-captain and a California native, attended the games in Santa Barbara and said that though they were lost decisively, they do not predict the team’s ability to succeed in the Ivy League.“It’s hard to read into these things,” Keller said. “Obviously you’d love to go 20-0 but…it’s hard to say you really lost or won those games when they’re throwing their number one pitcher and you might be throwing your number five.”With the grueling spring interim hopefully behind them, Dartmouth’s 2-2 Ivy start ties the team’s best opening weekend start since any of the current players suited up in the Green and White — against last year’s two strongest teams in the League no less. While concern has, for the second season in a row, been hovering around the mound, the emergence of pitchers like Bubala, Peterson, Sam Fichthorn ’18 and — every now and again — Burkholder gives rise to hope that the program will, at the very least, remain dominant in the Red Rolfe Division and, just maybe, keep a bid alive for that elusive Ivy League title.
