Stumbling to a 1-6 Ivy League mark start and mathematically eliminated from contention three weeks before the season’s end, the Big Green, now 3-9 in the conference, appear destined to finish somewhere in the fifth to eighth range in the standings. As it closes out a testing year, it’s worth assessing where things went right and wrong — especially for a team that has not experienced a conference win percentage decline from the prior season since 2009-10.

The 127th ranked team overall and 2nd ranked Ivy League team in the NCAA RPI rankings from the end of last season (Florida finished 6th), Dartmouth baseball seeks these challenges early in the season because it should.
