Youth fades quickly, or so I’ve learned in the past few years. A little under two years ago, I was tasked to write a sophomore summer sports column titled “First Team.” Every week, I walked into The Dartmouth’s offices, sat down next to the editors and typed out 800 words of pure energy the night the column was due.
While baseball co-captain Dustin Shirley ’18 has filled the stat sheet and impressed with his sheer athleticism in his time at Dartmouth, his impact off the field and his journey to get there reflect an intriguing story as well.
Nathalie Ferneau ’18, an intermediate flat and novice fences rider, will be the sole representative for the Big Green at the 2018 Teresa L. McDonald IHSA Scholarship Challenge National Qualifiers, in which she previously competed in 2015. Ferneau will be joined at another Nationals event by teammate Olivia Champ ’19,who is entered in the Open Equitation Over Fences event.
A force on the front line for the Dartmouth Big Green, Corey Kalk ’18 led the men’s ice hockey team this year as an alternate captain during a thrilling season. The men’s hockey team finished with a record of 16-17-2, and 11-0-1 in the Eastern College Athletic Conference. Kalk had a very productive season himself, with eight goals and 21 points, but statistics can’t begin to explain what Kalk meant to this hard-working group. Kalk is a natural born leader, and the “A” stitched on his jersey represented his knack for motivating others.
Dartmouth’s softball team is having a great season so far. The team currently stands at 10-5 in the Ivy League, good for second place in the conference behind Harvard University who sits at 13-5. Last weekend, the softball team not only added another win to its total, but did so while breaking an Ivy League record and earning recognition from the national media.
When approaching the season, most athletes agree that there is nothing that beats the feeling of being home. After a stretch of away games, things seem to come together effortlessly competing at home with an adoring crowd, playing on a familiar field or court and being surrounded by known officials. This week, The Dartmouth examines how that home field advantage affects the performance of the Big Green’s various athletic teams.
Matt Herzig ’17, a former member of the cross country and track and field teams at Dartmouth, finished in 12th place overall at the 2018 Boston Marathon with a time of 2:27:55 and a pace of 5:39. Isabella Caruso ’17, a former member of the Dartmouth Running Team and one of two current Dartmouth Teaching Science fellows in biology and chemistry, finished 40th in the women’s category and 37th in the 18-to-39 age division with a time of 2:56:18 and a pace of 6:44. The Dartmouth interviewed each of these runners about their experiences.
It’s late April and it snowed last week. Give me a break. Also, don’t read last week’s predictions. Here are eight insightful observations from the past seven days:
Alex Waterhouse ’20, a key member of the Dartmouth Climbing Team, has competed for the Great Britain national climbing team and placed near the top in several national and international climbing competitions.
Alpine skiing captain Foreste Peterson ’18 led the Dartmouth Ski Team to a third place finish at this year’s NCAA Ski Championships, among its best results in years. The team captain, from Berkeley, California, has been among the most successful athletes for the Big Green at any level of competition over the last four years, with dual All-American First-Team honors and four All-East First Team honors. Along with this, Peterson competed at the FIS World Cup prior to the normal collegiate season this past fall, making her debut in Soelden, Austria in October 2017.
Dartmouth men’s lightweight rowing has shaken up their training regimen this season with a scientific lactate training program.
The 7s season in women’s rugby is upon us, and the Big Green have high expectations for this upcoming season. Coming off of a tough loss in their first appearance in the NIRA National Championship to Quinnipiac University, the Big Green are looking to make a big statement.
It’s finally here: the NBA playoffs — and along with them, a set of predictions you never wanted. Here’s “Honorable Mention”’s picks, informed by brief Google searches, fantasy basketball and tuning in to the last two minutes of close games.
This past weekend, the United States Associate of Collegiate Fencing Clubs hosted the 2018 USACFC National Championships, in which the Dartmouth College Fencing Club took home a total of eight titles from the team and individual events, earning the overall combined championship title. Unlike most sports which require teams to earn bids for Nationals through regionals or other qualifying tournaments, all collegiate club fencing teams are automatically eligible to compete in Nationals.

To my one reader (hello mother): welcome to week three.
The varsity eight for Dartmouth men’s heavyweight rowing has a new look this season with a trio of freshmen and a mix of three sophomores and a junior replacing their five departed rowers. The crew’s three freshmen, Caleb Edmundson ’21, Evan Dwinell ’21 and Paul Gralla ’21, form an atypically young roster as Austin Heye ’18, Noah Van Dyke ’18 and coxswain Jake Rauh ’18 are the only upperclassmen who have consistently filled varsity eight slots this season.
