Dartmouth’s men’s basketball started off the season trying to prove all of the team’s doubters wrong. A panel of media representatives predicted the Big Green to finish seventh in the Ivy League this season, only ahead of Brown University. In addition, just a day before the season was set to begin, Dartmouth’s standout forward Evan Boudreaux ’19 officially announced that he would forgo the 2017-2018 season and play at Xavier University as a graduate transfer for two years, starting next season. With Boudreaux’s All-Ivy second team performance and a 7-20 overall record in 2017, many wondered how the Big Green would turn the team around.
Dartmouth men’s hockey has been successful as of late, toppling some of the best teams in the country and playing very strong hockey. Last weekend, the Big Green went on its yearly “North Country” trip, playing games at St. Lawrence University and Clarkson University. This has historically been a very difficult road trip for the Big Green as the men have only won both away games once in the past five years, during the 2013-14 season. This road trip is one of the key points for the Big Green during the Eastern College Athletic Conference schedule and often serves a benchmark showing how the team is progressing. Both opponents on this road trip have historic backgrounds and are regular contenders in the ECAC.
With the 2018 Winter Olympics kicking off in 11 days, athletes around the world are preparing to travel to Pyeongchang, South Korea for the experience of a lifetime. This year, however, players from the National Hockey League will not be lacing up for men’s ice hockey. For the first time since before the 1998 games, the NHL will not be sending players to the Olympics. Over the course of five Winter Games, the league has had 706 players take the ice for their nations and an average of 141 athletes per season.
Isalys “Ice” Quiñones ’19 has been a consistent leader for the Big Green as one of only three players to average double digits each game; she records 10.1 points per game. This past summer, Quiñones earned a spot on the Puerto Rican Women’s National Team and had the opportunity to play in the Women’s Centrobasket Championship in the Virgin Islands and the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup in Argentina. Puerto Rico ultimately finished third in both tournaments, which qualified the team for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup this upcoming fall.
Dartmouth women’s hockey has a long history of success. For example, in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, the Big Green has appeared in seven championship games, winning four. On an individual level, one of the team’s most notable alumna, Gillian Apps ’06 Tu’19, is a three-time Olympic gold medalist who most recently had a pivotal role in Team Canada’s gold medal campaign at the Sochi Olympic Games in 2014.
On Feb. 9, the 23rd Olympic Winter Games will kick off at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium in South Korea. While there are over 90 countries sending representatives to compete, many eyes will be on the fierce rivalry between the American and Canadian women’s ice hockey teams. Four years ago, Canada bounced back from a 2-0 deficit in the final four minutes of the 2014 Sochi Olympics gold medal game against the U.S., clinching the title in a stunning overtime defeat.
Men’s and women’s swimming and diving team won at home this past weekend against the University of Massachusetts and the State University of New York, New Paltz. But for both teams, to win at the Tate Ramsden Invitational, in memory of their late teammate Tate Ramsden ’17, made the meet more special.
With six matches to go before playoffs, the men’s and women’s squash teams reached the midpoint of their seasons this month. Both teams finished their 2016-2017 season in ninth place: a drop for the men who started the season ranked eighth and an improvement for the women who started the season ranked ninth then dipping to 11th for a brief moment in the middle of the season. The college nationals are broken into flights of eight teams. The top eight, the A division, compete for the national championship whereas the other brackets of eight compete for cups or trophies. Each team’s final season ranking is used to determine their initial rank the following season.
Dartmouth men’s basketball has had a difficult 4-11 start to the season, but with almost a full slate of Ivy League Conference games left to play, and a fast-developing young core, the men are focusing their efforts on qualifying for the Ivy League Tournament at the Palestra, the home gym of the University of Pennsylvania.
