Women's volleyball takes second at Dartmouth Invitational

(10/02/06 9:00am)

Although the Big Green managed to score two convincing victories against the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Robert Morris University in Saturday's competition, an emotional Friday night loss to Harvard that ended in a 15-13 fifth game cost the Big Green first place in the Dartmouth Invitational and soured an otherwise encouraging weekend.

No. 11 BC outmatches men's basketball

(11/22/05 11:00am)

The Dartmouth men's basketball team could not have scheduled a much more challenging opening to its 2005-06 season than a visit to Conte Forum to face the No. 11 Boston College Eagles. The Eagles returned four starters from last year's team, which opened its campaign with 20 consecutive victories. And when the final buzzer sounded Saturday night, all had gone as expected as bruising Preseason All-American power forward Craig Smith notched 22 points and nine rebounds to help the Eagles down the Big Green 80-61.

Big Green football hopes to send off seniors with a win

(11/18/05 11:00am)

Assured of a seventh place Ivy League finish with a 1-5 league record (2-7 overall), a Dartmouth football victory over second-place Princeton (6-3, 4-2 Ivy) Saturday would do nothing to improve the Big Green's league standing. With Brown only needing a victory against Columbia--a team that has been outscored 241-42 in six Ivy contests (all losses)--to clinch an Ivy title, moreover, it seems highly unlikely that Dartmouth will even have the opportunity to spoil Princeton's own championship aspirations.

Football loses a heartbreaker against Brown 24-14

(11/14/05 11:00am)

In Saturday's football game between Dartmouth and Brown, there was nothing surprising about standout running back Nick Hartigan's 193 yards and two touchdowns and the Bears picking up their Ivy-best fifth League win of the season on their home field. That the Big Green led after three quarters, however, and had the ball in its hands down just a field goal in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter probably surprised everyone not wearing a green and white uniform.

Football takes aim at Brown Bears

(11/11/05 11:00am)

With its hopes of contending for an Ivy crown or finishing with a winning record thwarted after a 1-4 start in league play, the Big Green football team (2-6) will now try to play the role of spoiler, hoping to vanquish the title aspirations of its remaining two competitors, Brown and Princeton. Those two teams are currently knotted atop the Ivy standings with identical 4-1 records against league opponents. On Saturday, Dartmouth heads to Providence to take on the Bears (7-1 overall), who have won their last six games and will come into the contest overwhelming favorites.

Big Red drops Big Green football 21-10 in Hanover

(11/07/05 11:00am)

In a game that often appeared to be a rare duel between the arm of one quarterback and the legs of another, the 312 passing-yards of Dartmouth quarterback Josh Cohen '09 were not enough to overtake Cornell (4-4, Ivy 2-3) on Saturday. En route to a 21-10 victory on a gorgeous afternoon at Memorial Field, the Big Red defense forced seven sacks and two turnovers while its potent rushing offense, led by senior quarterback Ryan Kuhn, piled up an astounding 282 yards on the ground.

Big Green football set to take on Cornell in Ivy bout

(11/04/05 11:00am)

Pick a clich. With only three games remaining, it is do or die, make or break, now or never for Big Green football Saturday when Cornell rolls into town. Should Dartmouth falter, its record would tumble to 2-6, 1-4 in the Ivy League. A win, on the other hand, would place Dartmouth just one game under .500 in league play and sustain the hopes of green-bleeding fans everywhere for a respectable season.

Big Green football falls 42-14 to Harvard in Cambridge

(10/31/05 11:00am)

Against a big rival, records can often prove irrelevant. Two years ago, behind the miraculous diving reception of Andrew Hall '05 that can only be called, "The Catch," the Big Green shocked Harvard in Cambridge with a 30-16 victory. One year ago, despite finishing with a 1-9 record, Dartmouth came a point shy of upending the Crimson at Memorial Field and spoiling its perfect season before a failed two-point conversion led to a 13-12 Harvard win.

Football game just one part of loaded sports weekend

(10/21/05 9:00am)

It's Saturday of Homecoming and an average Dartmouth student, battling a stubborn hangover, might arise just in time to stumble to Memorial Field for the noon kickoff of the Homecoming football game. Not only will anyone who's anyone be there, but there's always a chance that a few dauntless '09s will try and become legends--at least in their own minds--by rushing the football field at halftime.

Women's tennis shows well at fall Brown Invitational

(10/04/05 9:00am)

The Dartmouth women's tennis team took to the courts this weekend in preseason action at the Brown Invitational in Providence, R.I. During the round robin that began Saturday and ended Sunday, the ladies in green battled Rutgers, Boston University and the host Bears, enjoying mixed results in singles, while dropping all nine of their doubles matches.

Dartmouth Football Falls Short Again

(10/03/05 9:00am)

Saturday, the Dartmouth football team showed that playing roughly even on first, second and third downs against a good football team cannot always guarantee even a close game. In a 26-9 thumping from Ivy League powerhouse Penn, the Big Green (1-2, 0-1 Ivy) squandered several opportunities to put points on the board, missing two field goals and an extra point. Two blocked punts and a bad snap on another, meanwhile, helped set up two Penn field goals.

Women's volleyball defeats UNH, improves to 5-3

(09/22/05 9:00am)

On Tuesday night the Dartmouth women's volleyball team showed what a difference a year can make. The ladies in green emerged victorious from a back-and-forth, five-game, 144-minute marathon against in-state rival UNH in Durham (30-28, 30-32, 30-27, 26-30, 15-13). The win helped to erase memories of a dismal 1-7 start to 2004 that was capped by a three-game loss to the same Wildcats of UNH.

Volleyball bounces back to beat Brown in season's final road match

(11/10/04 11:00am)

With the season winding down, the Dartmouth women's volleyball team showed that there is still plenty of fight left in the squad as they played for pride in two weekend road matches. After falling to a tough Yale squad in three games Friday night, Dartmouth bounced back with a four-game win over Brown Saturday afternoon, snapping a three-match losing streak.
