In the women’s tennis team’s final game of the regular season, the No. 31 Big Green (18-5, 5-2 Ivy) beat Harvard University (7-12, 0-7 Ivy), who occupies last place in the Ivy League 5-2, at the Murr Tennis Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Dartmouth ended the year in second place among the Ivies, behind only Princeton University (12-8, 6-1 Ivy).

While it may seem like it’s only just begun, the spring season is coming to a close, and most Big Green teams get their final shot at Ivy League competition this week. On the diamond, the Big Green is in an ideal position, with opportunities to lock up postseason position for both baseball and softball this weekend. Men’s lacrosse and men’s tennis will also be in Hanover this weekend looking to grab one final victory while heavyweight crew hosts its only events of the spring.
In its first and only game of the year under the lights, men’s lacrosse took on another rookie program Tuesday night, routing the University of Massachusetts at Lowell 18-9. In a predictable win over the fresh-faced River Hawks — who just ended their first Division I season at 1-12 overall — the Big Green earned its most decisive victory of the season, putting itself over its previous season high of 16 goals in a game. The game also marked the first time the team came away with a victory of more than two goals.
Each spring, the men’s football team conducts 12 spring practices to prepare for the coming fall season.

If two weeks ago Dartmouth baseball was the king of splits, it has since become the king of streaks — winning 10 in a row, sweeping all of its conference competition so far and taking the Red Rolfe Division title for the eighth consecutive year with four conference games left in the season. It’s a good time to be watching baseball at Dartmouth.
The No. 31 women’s tennis team beat Brown University (10-9, 3-3 Ivy) 4-3 at home on Friday and traveled to Yale University on Sunday, winning by the same 4-3 scoreline. The team’s last five conference matches have been decided 4-3, and the Big Green has been able to scrape out four of those five wins, with its only loss in the batch coming against Princeton University (12-8, 6-1 Ivy), which clinched the 2015 Ivy League title — its second straight — with a win over Cornell University on Sunday.
The men’s and women’s track and field teams split up last weekend to face some of the best athletes in the country at the Mt. SAC Relays — hosted by Mt.

Matt Parisi ’15, shortstop for Big Green baseball, lives the kind of life that makes you doubt everything you know about physics — like a magician pulling out an endless chain of handkerchiefs from under this sleeve. The difference between the two is that the magician waits with a prop up his sleeve. Parisi does not deceive.
On the heels of two consecutive conference victories last weekend, the 47th-ranked men’s tennis team was looking to extend its win streak this past weekend as the Ivy League season winds down. After victories against unranked Brown University (15-7, 1-5 Ivy) by a score of 4-3 and against Yale University (11-11, 1-5 Ivy) at 5-2, the Big Green (13-10, 4-2) now enters its final home match on a four-win surge and a chance to end the season in second place in the Ivy League.
When the equestrian team met to begin practice for their upcoming Ivy League Championships after their competition at Zones earlier this month, the riders arrived to find that their saddles were without stirrups.
In less than a month after leading the men’s basketball team to its highest win total since 1999, Alex Mitola ’16 has chosen to transfer out of the program and graduate early at the end of this spring term. The reigning two-time team most valuable player and second-team All-Ivy League member had asserted himself as one of the top players in the Ivy League, but now is in the midst of deciding between several potential programs to both further his collegiate basketball career in his final year of eligibility and pursue graduate school work.
Men’s lacrosse broke its three-game losing streak with a 7-5 win against the New Jersey Institute of Technology Tuesday, ending the Highlanders’ debut season at 0-12. The meeting at NJIT’s Lubetkin Field at Mal Simion Stadium brought Dartmouth’s record to 4-6 with three games to play. Dartmouth’s usual standouts took to the stage again as Wiley Osborne ’17 had four assists, Jack Korzelius ’18 marked a hat trick, Adam Fishman ’15 notched his 15th goal of the season and goalkeeper Blair Friedensohn ’16 made 11 saves. A new face in Cody George ’18 stepped onto the board with a tally, and Jack Connolly ‘16 and Billy Heidt ’16 finished out the Big Green’s seven markers. The Big Green entered the match unsure what to expect, head coach Brendan Callahan said. NJIT’s new program is led by head coach Travis Johnson. Johnson was given just over a year to build a team and recruited more than 20 freshmen, completing the roster with just two older members, a sophomore and a senior from the club team. NJIT is the 11th start-up since 2010, according to Inside Lacrosse. The school recently transitioned to NCAA Division 1 status, but is not included in a conference. The fledgling team brought an unusual style into their match with Dartmouth. By running a possession game that at times looked more like a stall, the Highlanders were able to control the ball, take quality shots and limit Dartmouth’s offensive opportunities, contributing to the low score. At one point, Friedensohn said, NJIT held the ball for around seven minutes — an extremely long time for the Big Green defense to work continuously. The situation was not helped by Dartmouth’s poor performance on faceoffs, losing 11 of 16. It was a challenging style to play against, but not one the team is likely to spend much time learning to counter, Friedensohn said, as it is not one they expect to see again this season. “I knew if we came out and played well, we could certainly get her done,” Callahan said of the game. “The guys found a way to make it happen.” Dartmouth took the lead immediately in the match, scoring two goals in the first two minutes. NJIT got on the board with six minutes to play in the first quarter, then tied the score with just over a minute remaining. Dartmouth scored moments later to end the first quarter up 3-2. Korzelius netted the only goal in the second quarter, and NJIT had two goals in the third to enter the fourth quarter with the teams knotted at four. With one more goal for each side to start the fourth, it was not until just 7:26 remained that Korzelius was able to put Dartmouth up for good, netting two goals to close the final quarter. The star freshman was at it again. “I definitely think that there is always room for improvement, never settling for anything like that,” Korzelius said of the recent praise he has received. The team was, Callahan said, “a little tired and beat from the weekend,” having dropped its Princeton match Saturday. The team tried to learn from the loss to move forward into Tuesday’s game. “It was back to the basics, the details of what we did,” Callahan said. “We spent some time talking about what it meant to be a team and play together. Hey, we’ve got to shoot the ball better, we’ve got to communicate better on defense, we felt like there were some cracks in the base-level of our fundamentals and our skills, and we focused on that in the game today.” Tuesday, Callahan said, should be a springboard win, as Dartmouth has started the path to hitting its target of finishing the last four games 4-0. The Big Green has just a few days to prepare for its last road game at the University of Pennsylvania, but is now focusing on the bigger picture — the team has just two remaining games that could decide whether or not they make the Ivy League Tournament. “That’s the reason all of us came here — so we could win the Ivy League tournament,” Freidensohn said. “We’ve all been dreaming about it, so that’s really on the forefront of our minds — dedicating every second the next two weeks to that reaching that goal.” This season, which many saw as a rebuilding year under a new head coach, has had so far a large emphasis on improvement and growth. Now, Friedensohn said, the team is finally focusing less on getting better and more on simply trying to win. “We’ve actually established that we have improved every single week, and that’s why improvement is no longer our goal, but now, setting the next standard, is winning,” he said. “We’ve earned the right to set that as our goal.” The players are excited to have reached this point in the season, where they will be putting their work into practice. “The biggest part of our season is right now. These next games determine where we’re going to head, if we make these playoffs,” Korzelius said. “It’s definitely an awesome ride so far but we’re focused on finishing up in the way we want.” The team will play the University of Pennsylvania Saturday at noon in Philadelphia.
It’s hard to believe, but spring sports seasons are winding down as teams begin to enter the playoff push. The Big Green puts 15 teams in action this weekend across the country, playing in places as far afield as Clemson, South Carolina, and Walnut, California. Members of the track and field teams travel to the West Coast this weekend in a big preparatory race for the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Relays next weekend and the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships in three weeks’ time. The equestrian team also participates in the Ivy Championships this weekend.
In the summer before she came to play volleyball at the College, Katie Jarrett ’16 was supposed to receive a package from her “big sister” on the team.

Break out the brooms and call in the cleaning crew because last weekend the baseball team completed its first sweep of the season in a four game series against Yale University (10-18, 2-8 Ivy) — the first clean sweep of the Bulldogs at Yale in program history since the back-to-back double header schedule was instituted in 1993. Dartmouth followed up its stellar performance against Yale with a midweek doubleheader sweep of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (7-18) on the strength of three Joe Purritano ’16 triples.
The softball team traveled to New Haven, Connecticut, this past weekend to play two doubleheaders against Yale University (7-16, 2-8 Ivy) on Saturday and Sunday, winning all four games and improving its record against Ivy League schools to a conference-leading 11-1.
