Women’s rugby fell to the undefeated United States Military Academy at home Saturday afternoon, 39-19.

Despite the loss, the 2018 national champions have shown progress since their first loss of the season two weekends ago to Harvard.
Women’s rugby fell to Harvard University 50-34 Saturday afternoon despite a strong second-half charge. The Harvard-Dartmouth matchup has proven to be a tough test for both teams in recent years and is shaping up to be similarly challenging in the 2019-20 season. In Oct. 2018, Harvard bested the Big Green at the Ivy Rugby Championship. The next month, Dartmouth struck back and beat the Crimson to win the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association title. This season’s NIRA preseason rankings picked the Big Green to repeat as national champions with Harvard again as runner up.

Looking at the résumé of Dartmouth women’s rugby’s team, it is hard to believe the team has only been a varsity program for four years.

Emily Henrich ’22 became the first Dartmouth rugby player to receive the MA Sorensen Award. Presented by the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, the award is given annually to the top women’s rugby player in the country. Kat Ramage ’19 was also nominated for the award.

The softball team traveled to California over spring break to play a challenging slate of games in preparation for upcoming Ivy League play. The team competed in the California State University Northridge/Loyola Marymount University Tournament and played a total of seven games out west before returning to the East Coast for its conference opener against Columbia University. As the defending Ivy League co-champions with Harvard University, the team is looking to build upon last season’s success after hiring new head coach Jennifer Williams.
As reigning Ivy League co-champions, softball looks to build on their success and raise the standard of excellence that has been set through strong play the past few seasons even higher. Last year, softball finished first in the Ivy League through regular season play but lost to Harvard University 4-6 and 1-4 in both games at the Ivy League Championship Series. With the loss, the Big Green became co-champions and Harvard moved on to compete in NCAA Regionals. Softball has also seen a coaching change, with the old head coach Shannon Doepking leaving for Syracuse University after a successful four-year stint in which she won Ivy League Coach of the Year twice and the team went 118-98. Hired in October, new head coach Jennifer Williams spent the past eight years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as head coach, compiling the most wins in program history.
The women’s squash team started the season with the goal of breaking into the top eight in the country and came very close, finishing in a tie at No. 9 with a 5-7 record. That ranking places the Big Green in the second flight of the national championship next weekend, the Kurtz Cup, where the team looks to improve upon last season’s runner-up finish.
Motivated by some recent close defeats, the women’s tennis team comes into this season hoping to build on recent years of strong play that consistently places them as one of the best teams in the Ivy League. Last year, the team finished tied for third in the Ivy League. In 2017, following back-to-back second place finishes, the team tied for first in the Ivy League, earning the team an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship, where they lost in the first round to the University of Kentucky. Kristina Mathis ’18 was the unanimous Ivy League Player of the Year last year and competed in the NCAA Singles Championship. Returning sophomore Abigail Chiu ’21 earned a spot on the Ivy League first team for doubles last year also along with Julia Schroeder ’18.
