Courtney Weisse ’17, an attacker on the women’s lacrosse team, leads the Big Green with 34 goals and 38 points this season. Weisse has scored at least one goal in every game this season and has scored five goals on three occasions, most recently on Saturday versus Cornell University.
By now, the baseball and sporting worlds are both familiar with Bryce Harper. He was introduced to the world as a 16-year-old high school student anointed by Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci as “baseball’s LeBron.” He debuted in the majors in 2012 at just 19 years old. The chosen one had arrived. Now 24, Harper has piled up the accolades: National League Rookie of the Year, an NL MVP award, a Silver Slugger and four trips to the All-Star Game. In 2015, Harper became what he’d always been advertised as, a true superstar. That was his MVP season, but it came during an underachieving 83-79 season for his Washington Nationals.
Alone on the turf this past Tuesday, men’s lacrosse head coach Brendan Callahan let out a whoop. Callahan’s team had already left the Scully-Fahey Field for the locker room, jubilant after a 14-8 victory over the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
Given its recent success of two league championships in the past three years, the Dartmouth women’s softball team faced high expectations entering this season. However, with an overall record of 6-21-1 thus far, the team has fallen significantly below the high expectations set for the season.
0 for 4, 0 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. That is Kyle Schwarber’s stat line from the 2016 regular season. Schwarber, an Indiana University product, played just two games last season before tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee in a collision with Dexter Fowler in left-center field. If you don’t understand why Chicago Cubs brass is so high on Schwarber, consider the following: .412, .500, .471. That is Schwarber’s slash line from the 2016 World Series, stats the Ohio native accrued after playing no pro baseball between early April and late October. When asked before Game 1 of the Fall Classic began when he thought he might be able to return to the Cubs lineup, Schwarber responded “about six days ago.”
It couldn’t be more fitting: Dartmouth’s top cross-country skier hails from a town known as “the Cradle of Czech Skiing.” Surrounded by a family of Nordic enthusiasts, Fabian Stocek ’17 discovered his passion for cross-country skiing at a young age in the small town of Jilemnice, one of the Czech Republic’s northernmost towns, right on the edge of the Krkonoše mountains.
At the Lynne Marchiando Trophy in Boston, Massachusetts last weekend, Rebecca McElvain ’19 helped the Big Green sailing team win its first conference team race in 15 years.

The Rochester Americans announced the signing of Troy Crema ’17 to an amateur tryout contract on Friday afternoon.
At its most basic level, rowing is about suffering. The best crew, more often than not, is the crew that can suffer the most and still produce winning times. After months of pounding away at the ergometers in the winter, the Big Green crews have finally moved from the gym to the water.
Charlie Broom ’20
The city of Hamilton, New Zealand is nestled in the Waikato region of the country’s upper North Island. It is also the hometown of women’s soccer midfielder, co-captain and leading scorer Holly Patterson ’17. As Holly and I sat down to chat about her journey to Hanover and her Dartmouth experience, she had to have known that the question was coming: how did she possibly get from Hamilton to Hanover?
If you need a couple reasons to be excited for the future of baseball (and, trust me, there are plenty of them), consider the shortstop position.
The men’s lacrosse team has won just one game this season thus far, but its freshman goalkeeper George Christopher ’20 has been a relative bright spot. A touted prospect who played at Washington, D.C.’s Gonzaga College High School, Christopher was recruited by former Big Green coach Andy Towers but now plays under head coach Brendan Callahan, a fellow Gonzaga alumnus.
There have been a lot more pounding hearts in the Scully-Fahey bleachers during the 2017 women’s lacrosse season. Fans have witnessed a dramatic and dynamic style of play that commands excitement, even when the Big Green doesn’t win.
