The women’s soccer team remained winless in Ivy League play after the team fell at home to Columbia University 2-1 on Saturday.

The team has struggled to start games well, and as a result has been unable to find enough time to recover after falling into early deficits.

What’s up, Dartmouth? “Shoot For It” is normally colorful and humorous (at least we hope it comes across that way), but given what happened to Lamar Odom over the last week, we decided this week’s column would be more serious than normal. For those who don’t know, former NBA player Lamar Odom was rushed to a hospital last Tuesday and is reportedly “fighting for his life.” Lamar was found unconscious in a brothel outside of Las Vegas, where he had reportedly been staying for several days while doing a variety of drugs. Word is that Lamar’s condition has improved over the last few days, and despite being in a coma with multiple vital organs failing, he is beginning to recover. When news of Lamar’s trip to the emergency room first became public, the basketball community offered an outpouring of support for their troubled brother.
In each and every week of the 2015 season, the football team has clung to the mentality of treating each game equally and applying its focus only to the game ahead. No juncture in the team’s schedule will challenge that mindset more than the current one. With the game of the 2015 Ivy League season against Harvard University looming on the horizon, the Big Green (5-0, 2-0 Ivy) must first take care of visiting Columbia University (1-4, 0-2 Ivy) as it permanently returns to conference play this Saturday.
On Oct. 31, the men’s ice hockey team will formally kick off its 2015-16 season with a home game against Harvard University.

The previous season added to the team’s historic success, as the team tied for fourth place in the 12-team ECAC with Colgate University and finished in second place in the Ivy League behind Yale University. The team went on to sweep Princeton University in two games before falling to Colgate in the second round of the ECAC Hockey playoffs. Led by head coach Bob Gaudet ’81, the Big Green looks to build off last year’s strong season.

What’s up Dartmouth! Shoot for It boys back again for week 5, and this week we’re going to talk about the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs lost a game 7 thriller against the Los Angeles Clippers last season in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. They bounced back this offseason with the acquisition of marquee free agent power forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge. The 30-year-old Aldridge has been the franchise player of the Portland Trailblazers over the last several years, and he turned down more money from the Blazers and more starpower from the Lakers to sign with the Spurs. This week we’ll discuss what we expect for the San Antonio Spurs this upcoming season.
