Three golfers — graduate student Jason Liu, Charles Petrie ’22 and Mark Turner ’22 — finished in the top 20 and will look to build off those performances on Friday.

The women’s golf team will also compete at the Ivy League Championship. The women’s tournament will be held at the Ridge at Back Brook course in Ringoes, N.J.  The Big Green got some practice in at a match play event against Howard University on Saturday before the tournament was rained out after 15 holes.

The men’s and women’s track teams will compete at the Virginia Challenge in Charlottesville, Va. All eyes are on Connor Luck ’23 who captured first place in the decathlon for the first time in his career at the University of Massachusetts Multis Meet last Thursday. Another name to watch is Gabriela Fasanelli ’22, who finished third at the same competition. 

Lastly, men’s and women’s tennis will both face off against Yale University on Friday afternoon. The women’s team (7-11) will kick things off in Hanover at 2 p.m, while men’s tennis (8-11) will compete in New Haven, Conn. at 3 p.m.

Heavyweight rowing will compete at Brown University in Providence, R.I. this upcoming Saturday. The team looks to rebound after coming in second to No. 1 ranked Yale in the Olympic Axe on Saturday. The heavies managed to earn one win in the fourth varsity boat and will look to build on that against the Bears.

Women’s rowing will face off against Cornell University and Brown University in Ithaca, N.Y. The Big Green will try to maintain its winning momentum, coming off a strong showing at the Big Ten Invitation in Florida last weekend that was highlighted by a first-place finish for the second varsity eight boat. Dartmouth competed against teams including Indiana University, the University of Iowa, Michigan State University, the University of Minnesota and Washington State University. 

Lightweight rowing will compete at home on the Connecticut River against Yale for the Durand Cup. Dartmouth demolished Harvard University last Saturday in the Biglin Bowl, ending the Crimson’s 14-year winning streak to take home the trophy. 

The women’s sailing team will compete at the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association Team Championship on Saturday and Sunday. Dartmouth is ranked fourth overall and is the second-ranked Ivy League team in the championship, trailing second-ranked overall Yale. Races will be held at the Edgewood Yacht Club near Brown. 

In addition to the Virginia Challenge, some members of the men and women’s track team will also travel to Lowell, Mass. to compete at the George Davis Invitational starting on Saturday. 

Women’s rugby (4-1) will compete at the Ivy 7s Tournament, hosted by Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.

The award is given to the best player in women’s college rugby each year.

Softball (12-20) will face off against Columbia University (11-21) at home on Saturday afternoon.
