Women’s soccer head coach Ron Rainey knew what it was like to be a coach long before he became one. The son of a high school and college-level basketball coach, Rainey took his soccer skills to the sideline almost as soon as he graduated from Wilkes University, where he had been a two-time captain and team most valuable player on the men’s soccer team.
Alex Lee ’16 and John Beneville ’16 are back for the second week of “Shoot for It.” This week, we’ll be talking about the New York Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers and what we expect to see from them this upcoming season.
In preparation for its Ivy League slate, the volleyball team played four games over the last five days. Over the weekend, the women competed in Rochester, Michigan, defeating Eastern Illinois University and losing against Western Michigan University and tournament host Oakland University. The Big Green was on the road again for a Tuesday night match against Bryant University — its final game before conference play — where it dropped a four-set contest, bringing the team’s current record to 3-6.
The men’s soccer team suffered two tough losses in Seattle against the now-No. 10 University of Washington this past Friday and Seattle University on Sunday, ending the trip with a 2-3-1 record.
Led by an exciting second-place overall performance from Julia Calbi ’19, the women’s golf team opened its 2015-2016 season with a solid fourth-place finish among the field of 11 teams at the Chesapeake Bay Invitational on the par-72 United States Naval Academy golf course. Despite not having a single golfer finish in the top five individuals, the University of Pennsylvania won the event on the strength of a tournament-low 301 second-round score and a 61-over-par finish on the weekend.
At its inaugural game as a varsity program, the women’s rugby team ushered in a new era with a 77-5 win against the University of Pennsylvania on Sept. 13 at Brophy Field. This immediate success was followed by a tough loss against Quinnipiac University last Saturday, 5-43.
The men’s and women’s tennis teams opened their seasons this past weekend with tournaments on the road. The men participated in the Ivy Plus tournament in Princeton, New Jersey, from Friday through Sunday. On the same dates, the women competed in the Tribe Invitational at the College of William & Mary. Both teams saw mixed results in their opening matchups as the Big Green tennis players shook off the offseason dust.
This week, The Dartmouth’s Henry Arndt went one-on-one with Kat Ramage ’19 of the women’s rugby team. This year is women’s rugby’s first as a varsity sport at the College. The Big Green has split its first two games as a varsity outfit. Ramage delivered a standout performance in the season-opening win over the University of Pennsylvania, scoring a try and notching four conversions for a total of 13 points, second on the team.
Thanks to an electric offensive effort, the field hockey team came away with two non-conference wins this weekend. On Friday, the Big Green, led by a seven-point, three-goal performance from Julia Donald ’18, dominated Sacred Heart University 8-1. In a Sunday afternoon matchup, Dartmouth battled all game with Bryant University in a much tighter affair before exploding in the final 10 minutes to come from behind and steal the victory from the Bulldogs, 3-2.
With two dominating performances over the weekend, the women’s soccer team continued its hot start to the fall season, moving to 5-1-1 on the season. On Friday at Parsons Field in Boston, the Big Green came back from a one-goal deficit in the second half to beat Northeastern University by a score of 3-1. On Sunday, Dartmouth’s offense exploded at its home Burnham Field to take down Sacred Heart University by a lopsided score of 6-0.
Crucial plays from the Big Green defensive and special teams units paved the way for an 11-point halftime lead, topped off by a second-half offensive improvement, as the Big Green (1-0) convincingly defeated Georgetown University (1-2) 31-10. It wasn’t quite the dynamic offensive performance one might have expected from the football team, but that didn’t matter much in the team’s season opener against the Hoyas on Saturday.
What’s up Dartmouth!? John Beneville ’16 and Alex Lee ’16 here. Our weekly column “Shoot For It” will feature basketball banter through the eyes of two very different sports fans.
Long removed from its heights of Ivy League dominance in the 1990s, the football program has endured a lengthy revival period. After a 13-year drought between winning seasons that was snapped in 2010, the Big Green have steadily improved in nearly each subsequent season, only dipping down as far as a .500 winning percentage in 2011. With expectations higher than ever, that development could reach its zenith in 2015 with the potential for Dartmouth’s first Ivy League championship in 18 seasons.
Although the volleyball team began with a tough start to the preseason, ending 0-3 after losses in the San Diego State University and University of San Diego Invitational, the women quickly bounced back in their own tournament this past weekend, defeating both visiting teams, West Virginia University and the University of Connecticut.
The Big Green’s cross country teams opened their fall seasons in dominant fashion, taking first place in both the men’s and women’s races of the Dartmouth Invitational at the Hanover Country Club this past Saturday. Both the men and women recorded perfect team scores of 15 points in the home meet.
Highlighted by a double-overtime home win over the College of the Holy Cross, the men’s soccer team wrapped up its early four-game schedule before the beginning of the fall term with a 2-1-1 record.
The early season — that time when fall athletes and a few freshman are some of the only faces on campus, when entire days revolve around the sport and the team — is a time of development for each player, aided by teammates and coaches. Games are tough and each one matters, but the Ivy League games have yet to be played.
We’ve heard it before: to be the best, you’ve got to work harder, arrive earlier and stay later. Recruited athletes have proved they can do this, but they don’t stop when they sign their National Letter of Intent. Fall varsity athletes arrive up to three weeks before the rest of campus to work solely on their sports before classes begin, and freshman athletes are no exception.
It’s only been a couple of weeks since the first members of the Class of 2019 began to arrive on campus, but some Big Green athletes have already made names for themselves before they did the Salty Dog Rag outside of Robinson Hall. After competing with the United States national Under-19 Ultimate Frisbee league last year and representing the youngest player on this year’s U-23 team, Verzuh also toured the country with a group of female Ultimate players this summer to promote the sport. With such a reputation before entering official college play, I talked with Verzuh to discuss her accomplishments, the future of Ultimate and her upcoming first term at the College.
A group of students, under the guidance of women’s, gender and sexuality studies professor Pati Hernandez, spoke on the subject of what Hernandez calls Dartmouth’s “invisible walls” on Wednesday night through the program Telling My Story on Campus. The students shared testimonies from across the spectrum focused around one of the College’s most visible and pervasive social divides — those between the hierarchy of Dartmouth athletes, intramural through varsity, and Dartmouth “NARPs,” campus shorthand for non-athletes.
