(10/25/05 9:00am)

With a dominating 5-0 win over the Columbia Lions (8-5-1, Ivy 2-2) Sunday, the women's soccer team improved to 10-3-1 (Ivy 3-1) on the season and extended its unbeaten streak to five games. The Homecoming victory was also the team's second straight by a score of 5-0 and kept the Big Green just one point behind Yale in the race for the Ivy League championship.

Divest from Darfur

(10/25/05 9:00am)

Dartmouth's ideals demand that we take action regarding our investments in Sudan, where genocide has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and has displaced many times that number, both internally and externally. The Sudanese government funds this extermination with revenue generated from oil companies. This money is used to buy weapons, including planes and bombs, coordinate the eviction and murder of millions of people and fund the Janjaweed militia that terrorizes the countryside.

Jazz great Marsalis to play to packed crowd

(10/24/05 9:00am)

In a strangely appropriate turn of events, while the country struggles to rebuild New Orleans and its surroundings from the wrath of the hurricane that ruined it, Wynton Marsalis will play this Tuesday night at the Hopkins Center. The eeriness of this concert stems from the fact that Marsalis -- like the jazz music from which he has built his fame -- was born in New Orleans. Thus, almost as if to simultaneously commemorate and celebrate his native city's musical richness, Marsalis will play to a long-ago sold-out event on a campus that has already taken so much action to help soften the repercussions of Katrina. Marsalis' performance promises to be an upbeat continuation of the liveliness of Hanover during Homecoming and will likely be the highlight among the arts events on campus this year.

Women's rugby takes BC in defensive match

(10/24/05 9:00am)

This past Saturday, the Dartmouth Women's Rugby Club bussed out on Homecoming to take on and ultimately defeat Boston College by a score of 5-3. Dartmouth came out strong in the first few minutes of the game with a spectacular run by Cristina Duncan Evans '06, who broke tackles by no less than four BC players. Large gaps on the outside spurred the Dartmouth backs to pass the ball out quickly to a sprinting Diana Geisser '06 who scored the first and only try within ten minutes of kick-off.

Field hockey beats UMass and Columbia consecutively

(10/24/05 9:00am)

Dartmouth field hockey was a perfect 2-0 this week, winning Wednesday at UMass and Saturday against Columbia at home. Lizzie Bildner '08 took three shots all week and each of them found the back of the cage. Dartmouth owes this week's success to her marksmanship and the authority of the Big Green defense. Bildner scored twice in the 2-1 double-overtime victory over UMass.

Football gives the fans what they want

(10/24/05 9:00am)

There is no doubt that alumni who can easily recall the glory days of Dartmouth football, either during the early 1990s or even as far back as the mid-20th century, when the Big Green footballers reached their national peak, have viewed the past eight seasons with disdain. However, for one brisk October afternoon, 6,222 grimaces turned to smiles and the burly men of Dartmouth were kings again as the Big Green (2-4, Ivy 1-2) triumphed over Columbia (2-4, Ivy 0-3), 17-6, at Memorial Field for a homecoming victory.
