Co-Ivy Player of the Year O'Connor signs with Pittsburgh Penguins

(03/31/20 6:05am)

As the sports world shuts down across the country due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the success of Drew O'Connor ’22 provides some positive news for Dartmouth athletics. A dominating presence in Thompson Arena these past two winters, the Dartmouth sophomore recently signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. If not for the NHL shutdown due to COVID-19, O’Connor would have finished off this season at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with the Penguins’ amateur affiliate team in the American Hockey League on an amateur tryout contract. Instead, once the outbreak dies down, O’Connor said he will likely head directly to Pittsburgh for the regular season, though the situation remains fluid.

Student athletes grapple with loss of spring season

(03/31/20 6:10am)

When Kipling Weisel ’18 arrived in Bozeman, Mont. earlier this month, he was ready to compete in an NCAA skiing championship for the last time in a Dartmouth ski suit. On the first day of competition, he placed 11th overall in giant slalom — the highest score of the Dartmouth men’s alpine skiers in that race. With a top-five finish from Tricia Mangan ’19 on the women’s side and a lot of racing left to go, the team was ready to rally to achieve an overall podium finish. A text from Weisel’s coaches before his second and final day of competition, however, brought the team’s comeback aspirations — and Weisel’s Dartmouth ski career — to an abrupt halt. The NCAA had canceled all athletic events for the remainder of the school year, including the skiing championships.

The Ivy League presidents announced their unanimous decision on Wednesday to cancel all varsity athletic competitions and practices for the spring term.

In response to the growing coronavirus outbreak, the Ivy League announced this afternoon that all athletic practices and competitions for varsity spring sports through the end of the academic year will be canceled.

Track and field teams take sixth and eighth place at Ivy Heps

(03/06/20 7:00am)

Since the start of the season, a digital countdown clock had been running inside Leverone Field House, showing the exact number of days, hours, minutes and even seconds until the 2020 Ivy League Indoor Heptagonal Championships meet. The countdown hit zero this weekend as both the men’s and women’s track and field teams traveled to Cornell University to compete at Heps, finishing in sixth and last place, respectively.

(03/02/20 7:15am)

After wins over Merrimack University and Bryant University, the Big Green continued its strong performance with a 14-5 win over the University of Massachusetts Lowell this past weekend.

The Redshirt Senior: Despite ‘Parity,’ Plenty of Excitement Can Be Found in College Basketball

(03/02/20 7:00am)

Some words that have been tossed around this college basketball season include “parity” and “chaos,” and the take that there isn’t a “top team” in this season and how that is ruining the game. While this season has been known for its upsets, with the first seven weeks of the AP Poll having seen five different number 1 teams (Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke, Louisville and Kansas) and top 10 teams losing a total of 11 games against unranked opponents in the first half of December, the absence of a dominant team and the resulting chaos does not make for a poor season. 

From the Bleachers: XFL is Promising, But Not Enough to Give Up the Big League Chew

(02/24/20 7:05am)

The NFL season has unfortunately come to a close, which has left me with just about nothing to talk about during the last few weeks. I tend to think I’m less fun in the offseason, whereas most would probably just say that I’m less annoying. Nonetheless, with no college or NFL games to look forward to until September, I, along with many other middle-aged dads, find myself in desperate need of a new hobby.
