A week ago today was Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, a commemoration of the Battles of Lexington and Concord and also the annual running of the Boston Marathon. Two years ago, the holiday was marred by a tragic bombing. Five days later, the Boston Red Sox played their first game at Fenway Park after the bombings, trading in their traditional home jerseys with “Red Sox” across the front for ones with “Boston.”
Hailing from Kleinberg, Ontario, Canada, Laura Stacey ’16 always knew that hockey was her sport.
Every great thing starts off as a small idea. In the fall of 2015, Tony Choi ’16 had a dream: to start a Powerlifting Club at Dartmouth.
It is not typical for a freshman to come in and play a major role in a team’s success, but that’s exactly what John Lazor ’19 has been doing since he stepped on campus in the fall. In the spring, he surpassed a strong fall season that saw him create a young 1-2 punch with teammate Ian Kelsey ’18.

A little more than two weeks ago, Jordan Spieth was running away with the lead at the Masters. The 22-year-old phenom had just finished out the ninth hole at Augusta National with his fourth straight birdie, vaulting him five shots ahead of the field with just nine holes to play. The reigning Masters champion, the youngest to win the tournament since Tiger Woods, looked primed to fill the massive void left by Wood’s descent.
A swimmer from South Africa, James Verhagen ’16 knew almost no one in the country when he set foot in the United States for the first time his freshman fall. But he will leave with his name in the record books.
In March of 2015, the Dartmouth basketball team — under the tutelage of then-head coach Paul Cormier — reached new heights as it worked to rebuild, playing in its first postseason tournament in 56 years. A downward turn from this apex ensued, however, and led to plans to reshuffle the struggling program once again.
Men’s Track and Field

The Dartmouth cycling team once again took part in the L’Enfer du Nord race this weekend, co-hosted this year by the University of Vermont. The team raced in Hanover on Saturday and left its home course to compete in Charlotte, Vermont on Sunday, wrapping up the weekends’ events with a strong finish, claiming third place in L’Enfer du Nord omnium, and fifth place out of 42 schools in the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference. After the weekend’s performances, the team rose from second to first place in the Ivy League. On Saturday, the races at Dartmouth consisted of two courses — the Frat Row Criterium and the Bridge to Ridge individual time trials. For the individual time trials in the Men’s A category, David Berg ’16, president of the cycling team, led the Big Green with a 10th place finish. He was closely followed by teammate Ethan Call ’18 who finished 15th.
In the very first round of the prestigious Varsity Cup invitational tournament, then-No. 50, now-No. 11 Dartmouth’s men’s rugby team upset then-No. 11 now-No.12 Pennsylvania State University with a 30-25 victory last Saturday, catapulting the Big Green up in the standings posted on Goff Rugby Report.
When athletic director Harry Sheehy announced on the morning of March 21 that men’s basketball head coach Paul Cormier would not return for the 2016 season, the news came as somewhat of a surprise. Despite building consistent improvement up until last season and fielding two consecutive freshman classes that contained an Ivy League Rookie of the Year, Cormier now leaves a program to which he devoted 13 total years of his coaching career. Beyond Cormier’s inability to bring the team to a conference win, the decision follows a broader development within Dartmouth athletics — a recent surge, for one reason or another, in turnover among the Big Green head coaching ranks.
