Dartmouth cycling unfazed by muddy course
The season came to a close on Saturday for the Dartmouth men's and women's cross country teams. Both teams failed to qualify for nationals at the NCAA regional meet, held in the Bronx at Van Cortland Park.
That the young Big Green squad lost 62-45 wasn't as surprising as the team turning the ball over 17 times and squandering 10 points on missed free throws in the game.
When asked whether Dartmouth's (5-3-0, 5-1-0 ECACHL) relative woes on offense on Saturday was due to better competition in Colgate or self-inflicted mistakes, assistant captain Nicole Ruta '08 said, "I think it was a bit of a combination of both. We came out flying for the Cornell game looking for a big victory and we were capitalizing on all the opportunities we had. However, in the Colgate game we weren't generating as many scoring chances as we would've liked."
Apparently we have a bunch of Olympians on the women's hockey team. One of them, Sarah Parsons '10, was the youngest player on the U.S. team, and took home a bronze medal. If you're scoring at home, that makes her life resume way more impressive than yours. That is, unless you're one of her Canadian teammates who won gold. We sat down and talked about playing hockey with parents and the Dartmouth team dynamic.
The Big Green looked good in the first game of the Yale match, staying close to the higher-ranked Bulldogs throughout the game as neither team led by more than four. At 28-28, a questionable call gave Yale the serve and the Bulldogs seized the opportunity, taking the game 30-28.
Following a 6-3 victory over Colgate on Friday, Dartmouth (4-2-0, 3-2-0 ECACHL) took down the 11th-ranked team in the nation, dominating Cornell until the last minute of the third period. Led throughout the weekend by netminder Mike Devine '08 and freshman phenom T.J. Galiardi '10, Dartmouth, with its quick-strike offense, accumulated an early lead in both games.
The Big Green defense had to prevent the Bears from crossing the goal line. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, the Big Green defense charged onto the field, about to protect Dartmouth's first victory at home this season.
With two key starters Leon Pattman '07 and Johnathan Ball '08 out with injuries, the Dartmouth men's basketball team could not get anything going against the Minutemen of the University of Massachusetts. The Big Green lost 98-61 in the season opener for both squads in Amherst, Mass.
With head coach Terry Dunn in his third season at the reins of a program led by co-captains Jason Meyer '06 and Johnathan Ball '08, the men's basketball squad, which has 11 returning letter-winners, enters the 2006-07 season with confidence.
Dartmouth's situation is unique among the schools of the Ivy League in that we lack a coherent mascot. Yale has "Handsome Dan" the bulldog: short, ferocious, and horribly ugly. Columbia's teams are the Lions, which, for some strange reason, are blue. Princeton has the Tigers, which works well with their school colors: orange and black. The University of Pennsylvania has the Quakers, which I would imagine is an odd name for the football, hockey and wrestling teams considering the Quakers' commitment to non-violence. Brown tastefully chose the Bears after the logistics involved ruled out their first choice, the Protesting Anarchists. Cornell, like Dartmouth, lacks an official mascot, but they all seem partial to "Snuggles," the fabric-softener teddy bear from the TV commercials (they renamed it "Touchdown"). Their nickname is "Big Red," which is also the name of a cheap chewing gum you often find stuck to the floor of a movie theater. Harvard's nickname is "Crimson" and their mascot is John Harvard, both of which are very, very stupid.
Over the past few days, I have been continually thinking about the myriad issues and concerns that have come up regarding Drew Lerman '10's comic, "The Still North," in the Nov. 6 issue of The Dartmouth. While the publication of this comic may bring up issues regarding free speech, censorship and individual and collective responsibility, the issue I want to focus on is the disastrous effect this comic, and other forms of tacit and explicit condoning of sexual assault, have on our community. I find it imperative to talk about what attitudes, values and behaviors are reinforced as a result of these scenarios. While it is easy to say that the intention of the comic was not to reinforce sexual assault as an accepted behavior, the impact of the comic was, indeed, just that.
University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann apologized for a Halloween photograph showing her standing next to a student dressed as a suicide bomber in an open letter to the university community last Sunday. The photograph, taken at the president's annual Halloween party, sparked controversy since its release on the internet and prominent coverage on blogs as well as in The New York Post. Since then, alumni, students and members of the University's Jewish community have openly criticized Gutmann's decision to pose for the photograph.
The Tuck School of Business celebrated 40 years of diversity at its 12th annual Tuck Diversity Conference this past weekend. Part student recruiting session, part networking conference, part alumni reunion, the program brought together prospective, current and former students with faculty members and business leaders.
In a lecture challenging upper-class concepts of good citizenship, military wife Kathy Roth-Douquet and Marine Corps father Frank Schaeffer urged an audience in Rockefeller Center on Friday afternoon to think about the class inequalities in military service.
Dartmouth's efforts to achieve a sustainable campus are moving beyond dining toward reducing its dependency on fossil fuels, according to sustainability coordinator Jim Merkel. Some, however, have questioned the efficacy of these future energy-focused projects.
Gail Koziara Boudreaux '82 will be presented with one of the six 2007 NCAA Silver Anniversary awards on Jan. 7, the NCAA announced last week. The award recognizes former standout student-athletes in various sports who have gone on to excel in their chosen professions.
