The ski team will race on the second and final day of competition at the UNH Carnival. 

Men’s track and field will look to continue its successful season in Boston at the River Hawk Invitational after its recent meets have featured several record-breaking finishes like the 5.13 meter pole vault posted by David Adams ’26 last weekend, a Dartmouth program record. Events begin at 10 a.m. 

Women's swimming and diving (1-8) will host Columbia University (3-3) for one of its final Ivy League meets in the Karl Michael and Spaulding Pools at 12 p.m. The women are 0-6 in conference competition and are seeking the Big Green’s first Ivy League win.

Women’s basketball (2-18) travels to New York City to take on the Columbia Lions (16-3), the top-seeded team in the Ivy League, at 2 p.m. The Big Green is currently amid an eleven-game losing streak and is hoping to earn its first conference win of the season.

Men’s basketball (7-13) will compete against Columbia (6-15) at home in Leede Arena, also at 2 p.m. The basketball team has had a strong last few games despite last weekend’s overtime loss to Princeton University. This game kicks off a four-game home stand for the Big Green. 

Women’s hockey remains in upstate New York to play against Cornell (12-7-2) in Ithaca for its second game of the weekend at 3 p.m. The Big Green will seek redemption on the road after coming out on the wrong side of a 6-5 loss in the teams’ last meeting.
