MANCHESTER — For a state engulfed with events dedicated toward the upcoming primary, New Hampshire hosting a professional bull riding tournament at the Southern New Hampshire University Arena last weekend was a dramatic change of pace. Despite a snow storm blanketing the local roads, dozens of bulls and riders — along with thousands of spectators — took part in the two-day Manchester Invitational, the first Professional Bull Riders, Inc. series in the city’s history.
Maybe it’s just that the Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl, but I find myself more excited for this year’s rendition of the greatest event in sports than I’ve been in a long time. It’s fitting that the Kansas City Chiefs, who represented the AFC in Super Bowl I, will play for their second Lombardi Trophy in the league’s storied 100th season. They find themselves facing the five-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers, who can tie the Patriots and Steelers for both the most rings in NFL history and the most annoying fan base with a victory.
From the onset of Saturday’s game, 3-point shooting proved to be the differentiator between Dartmouth (7-10, 0-2 Ivy) and Harvard University (13-4, 2-0 Ivy) men’s basketball, with the Big Green falling just short, 70-66.
No. 20 Dartmouth men’s hockey held leads for five different stretches this weekend on a New York road trip, but ultimately fell to No. 1 Cornell University 3-2 and tied Colgate University 3-3. The Big Green now sit in fourth in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, settling for just one point in the standings despite playing from behind in only one period across the two games.
As I write this column two weeks into the winter quarter, I find myself to be infinitely smarter than I was when I arrived on a frigid Sunday two weeks earlier. Why, you ask? Because, after taking two weeks of social psychology, I have solved the most fundamental debate facing NFL fans.
Following two home wins last weekend, the men’s hockey team ranked No. 20 in the nation in this week’s NCAA poll on USCHO.com. The ranking represents the first time Dartmouth has snuck onto the charts in nearly four years, having last polled at No. 20 on Feb. 1, 2016.
Dartmouth men’s hockey won two games on its home ice twice this past weekend, defeating league opponents Clarkson University and St. Lawrence University. With the wins, the Big Green moved into a four-way tie for third place in the Eastern College Athletic Conference standings.

Dartmouth’s ski team will hit the slopes this weekend for its first races of the season. Last season, the Big Green finished in fourth place at the NCAA Championships and won its third-straight Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association title.

Dartmouth men’s basketball might have a 7-8 record through 15 games, but the month of January brings the real action along with a clean slate.
Last Friday, Leverone Field House was filled to capacity for the 2020 Dartmouth Relays. Amid hundreds of voices and under bright fluorescent lights, the Big Green track and field teams competed against eight other schools, coming away with victories on both the men’s and women’s sides.
I woke up confidently the morning of Saturday, Jan. 4, ready for a full slate of NFL playoff action. The last time a team that played on Wild Card weekend made the Super Bowl was in 2012, but I was sure this was the year that not one, but two, of those teams would break through. So I took to Twitter to announce my bold proclamation: I was predicting a battle between the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
The Dartmouth men’s hockey team played in two thrilling games this past weekend to conclude nonconference play for the season. The Big Green capitalized on two comebacks to earn a tie on the road against University of Vermont and a huge home win over Boston University.
Allie Winstanley ’23 was recently named to the New England Women’s Intercollegiate Soccer Association’s All-New England First Team after a stellar freshman campaign. The forward had an impressive offensive season that broke Big Green freshman records. In addition to the New England First Team, she earned a spot on the All-Ivy Second Team and was one of only four Ivy League students named to the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region First Team.
The new year means new beginnings and a desire to transform oneself for the better. Some people go to the gym for a week or two, some people make an effort to be nicer to others and some people make an effort to put down the bottle. College basketball in 2019 was all about the big stars. Duke University was in the top five of the AP poll last year due to Zion Williamson’s heroics, and Carsen Edwards went on a scoring streak for Purdue University in the NCAA Tournament that ultimately fell at the hands of eventual national champions the University of Virginia. So how did the college basketball world change from last season to this season?
Over the last few weeks, the Dartmouth men’s hockey team (7-5-2, 5-3-1 Eastern College Athletic Conference) has racked up some impressive victories.
Many students traveled during the six weeks of winter break between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, and the men’s basketball team was no exception.

Women’s basketball has kept busy this winter break, traveling as far as Chicago to play a total of 10 games. The team ended its nonconference schedule with a 6-7 record. Now, the Big Green prepares for important Ivy League games starting with a home game against Harvard University on this Saturday as the team seeks to improve upon its fifth place finish in the Ivy League last year.
