In many ways, female athletes and women’s sports defined Dartmouth sports news during the 2014-2015 year. The women’s cross country team defended its Ivy League title, the softball team won its second consecutive Ivy League title under first-year head coach Shannon Doepking and athletic director Harry Sheehy announced the women’s rugby team’s impending elevation to varsity status for the 2015-2016 season. As those programs enjoyed exciting news, the nominees below enjoyed phenomenal success on an individual level.
The Big Green enjoyed a year of firsts this year with a national title in equestrian and a first-ever appearance for the women’s tennis team in the NCAA tournament. Nordic skiing also saw its first national title in four years. Dartmouth enjoyed success in the Ivy League as well, winning the Ivy League softball championship for the second consecutive year and tallying four second-place Ivy League finishes — baseball, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and football.
Vince Marriott: The NHL. The status of the labor negotiations never seems to improve, and time keeps on ticking. The recent leak of confidential documents detailing labor talks and the fact the two sides only met for an hour on Sunday leads me to believe that there won't be a pro hockey season this year. The negotiation process, however, has received more media attention than a regular hockey season ever would, so at least hockey is getting some publicity. Something else not to watch for is another Sports Weekly edited by us. It's been real guys, and keep an eye out for the next generation of sports editors taking over in the winter.
Vince Marriott: Once again, basketball season is upon us. While I'm not usually a huge fan of the sport at a professional level, the recent resurgence of the Philadelphia 76ers has me excited for what could happen this year. It hasn't been a great start so far, however, as my team currently sits at 1-1 with the lowest scoring average in the entire NBA. Even so, I'll be keeping a close eye on this squad as it looks to win its first championship since 1983. The beauty of the NBA season is that there are always good games to watch, but I'll definitely be watching when the Sixers take on the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday on national television. (Wednesday, 8 p.m., ESPN)
Vince Marriott: Once again I find myself writing about the NFL, but then again, it might just be the only professional sport that matters anymore. With the current ESPN poll saying that 63 percent of people would rather watch yesterday's game between the Saints and the Broncos than Game Four of the World Series, why not go with the sure thing? This week I'm excited for the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the San Diego Chargers on Thursday. Even though the matchup doesn't look very exciting on paper, it's a Thursday night, and you're not doing anything else. Besides, regardless of what else is on, I know I'd hate to miss watching the most important game of the evening. (Thursday, 8:20 p.m., NFL Network)
