Griffith’s Got Stats: What was up on Nov. 6?
Jennifer Costa ’21 left Connecticut a hero on Saturday night, netting the game-winning goal against Quinnipiac University with just over one minute remaining in overtime. The clinching goal was the first of the forward’s career and gave the Big Green an unlikely first win of the young season against a premier hockey school on the road. I sat down with Costa to discuss her clutch score at Quinnipiac and her 16-year hockey career leading up to that point.

The Dartmouth men’s soccer team was in Hanover homecoming weekend for a matchup against Harvard University. Despite being hampered by the weather conditions, the Dartmouth Big Green did not miss a beat as they posted one of their best performances of the year. The Big Green was able to come away with a decisive 2-0 victory against the Harvard Crimson.
The women’s swimming and diving team is off to a great start, recording their first win against the University of New Hampshire on Friday and looking to finish higher than last year’s eighth place performance at the Ivy League Championships. The Dartmouth sat down with co-captain Caroline Poleway ’19 to talk about the team’s prospects for the season as well as her swimming career. Poleway swam in multiple events last year, including in the 400m medley relay that set a Dartmouth school record. Poleway has high expectations for the team as well as herself based off of last year’s finish and the talent the first year students offer.
It was a tough weekend for the College.
I don’t want to write this column. I’d rather write about LSU-Bama from Baton Rouge, reflect on the Red Sox’s fourth title in my lifetime or break down another week of Connor McDavid showing his otherworldly speed and skill against the best hockey players in the world. But in light of recent events on a campus about 20 miles on the Beltway from where I grew up, it seems impossible to talk about anything else.
“It’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced before.”
Men’s hockey opened its season in exciting fashion on Saturday night, defeating Harvard University 7-6 in overtime. Quin Foreman ’21 tipped in a cross-ice pass from Shane Sellar ’20 for the game-winning goal just 18 seconds into overtime. Sellar, the recipient of the Manser Award for most improved player last year, finished the game with a team-high two goals in addition to the overtime assist. He is a member of “The Timber Line,” Dartmouth’s top offensive line with Foreman and Will Graber ’20. Sellar has high expectations for the Big Green this year, including an Eastern College Athletic Conference championship and National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament appearance.
Pewter Bowl for Berry Sports Center (1987)
In September of 1992, a young Brett Favre replaced injured fan-favorite Don “Majik Man” Majkowski and led the Green Bay Packers to a come-from-behind victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. From that point on, whether in Favre or his successor Aaron Rodgers, the Packers have had one of the three best quarterbacks in football. And yet, during that time, Green Bay has brought just two titles home to Title Town, the same number earned by the Baltimore Raven duo of Trent Dilfer and Joe Flacco. Obviously, there are more variables at work here than just one position, but the simple fact is the Packers have failed to leverage the National Football League’s steadiest quarterback situation over the past 30 years into the kind of consistent championship level success one would probably expect.
The Ivy League football title will most likely be decided next week, as undefeated Dartmouth takes on undefeated Princeton University in central New Jersey. Princeton and Dartmouth are currently ranked atop the Ivy League statistically; the teams are ranked first and second, respectively, in both total offense and total defense. Both teams will be looking to capture their first outright Ivy League football title in over 20 years; Princeton has not won the title outright since 1995, while Dartmouth hasn’t won outright since 1996 (Dartmouth split the title with Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania in 2015 and Princeton split it with Penn in 2016).
At a college that prides itself on being on the cutting edge, it’s only natural that the Dartmouth football program fosters a culture that stands out from the rest. In the last decade, head coach Buddy Teevens ’79 has implemented multiple changes to benefit his team on and off the field.
This past week, the Dartmouth women’s soccer team faced both Marist College and Ivy League rival Columbia University in two key matchups for the Big Green as their season begins to wind down.
On Saturday, the Dartmouth heavyweight rowing team started its season by finishing with boats in first and third place at the annual Head of the Charles Regatta in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For Emma Alter ’20, the coxswain of the winning team in the Men’s Club 4+, the race was the pinnacle of a lengthy expedition. After a high school concussion that prevented her from rowing in college, Alter made the switch to coxing when she walked onto the heavyweight team at Dartmouth.
