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.

Déjà vu all over again.
Before his sophomore summer, David Cordero ’16 could count on one hand the number of times he had ridden a horse. On Sunday, he represented Dartmouth’s equestrian team at Zones, one step below the national stage.
In the past year, the Dartmouth women’s rugby program has been host to many changes. Not only is it now a fully recognized varsity sport, but it is also one of the few programs in NCAA women’s rugby to be fielding teams of both sevens and the more traditional fifteens.
The Dartmouth men’s tennis team’s 2015-16 season has been rock solid, with the team currently sporting an impressive 15-8 record. The team has scored highlight wins over many quality opponents, including then No. 37 Drake University and then No. 32 Tulane University.
It may seem strange for a kid from D.C. to grow up a fan of the Chicago Cubs. In the summer before I started first grade while visiting my grandparents in Chicago, my grandfather took my brother and me to Wrigley Field.

The Dartmouth men’s and women’s golf teams are entering into the full swing of their spring seasons, hoping to build on their strong fall seasons and continue on the path to respect and relevance in the world of Division 1 golf.
Growing up in Los Angeles, I always believed that Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers were two inseparable terms in the world of basketball. It seemed almost as though Bryant would never leave the Lakers and that someday in the distant future the next generation of avid basketball fans would be able to walk through the glass doors of Staples Center with their friends and family to witness Bryant’s unstoppable fadeaway shot.
On the soccer team’s team photo posted on the Dartmouth website, one notable member is missing: Marcos Robertson-Lavalle ’17, the team manager. Working behind the scenes, Robertson-Lavalle plays an instrumental role in preparing the team and contributing to its overall success.
Justin Donawa ’19 began his collegiate athletic career with a bang. On a cool October night at Burnham Field in Hanover, the Dartmouth men’s soccer team was locked in a nail-biter against Ivy League rival Columbia University. Midway through the first half, Donawa made his second career appearance for the Big Green as a substitute, and in the 42nd minute, fired a bullet from 40 yards out that landed in the bottom back right corner of the net. In celebration, Donawa ran over to the sideline, exuberantly punching the air as he was mobbed by his teammates.
After winning two consecutive Ivy League titles to end a 22-year drought, the Dartmouth baseball team has met an identical end-of-season fate each of the last five years: winning its own Red Rolfe Division, only to lose in the ensuing Ivy championship series each time. With the Ivy League portion of the 2016 schedule on the horizon, the Big Green will now gear towards recreating the same success as in years past but overcome this final hurdle. Intentionally designed to provide some challenges, the team’s preseason has brought many more defeats than victories with a 5-13 record — and a troubling Ivy-worst -60 run differential — but generally produced a mixed bag of results.
