After dropping a 3-2 overtime heartbreaker at Yale University on Saturday, the men’s hockey team was eliminated from the Eastern College Athletic Conference. With the loss, the Big Green ended its season 10-18-3, while the Bulldogs avenged last year’s ECAC defeat to Dartmouth and moved on to the quarterfinal round.
At the 2017 Ivy League Heptagonal Indoor Championship last weekend, Dartmouth’s men’s track and field team finished in third with a total of 82 points, and the women’s track and field team finished with 62 points to claim sixth.

In the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s national rankings released on Feb. 21, the women’s tennis team was ranked 20th in the nation, the second highest ranking it has ever achieved. As of the most recent Feb. 28 rankings, the team has since slipped three spots to No. 23. After the women’s team ended the 2012-13 season with a losing record and without an ITA ranking, the team has since gone on a three-year streak of ranking within the top 50 of the ITA.
If fans knew that a team would feature 11 freshmen in its upcoming season, only one term should come to mind: rebuilding. While the 2016-2017 men’s hockey team’s play showed that its players preferred not to fall victim to the “rebuilding” motto, flashes of progress were accompanied by frequent growing pains.
Two weeks ago we saw one of the greatest returns ever experienced in sports history: like “Michael Jordan stepped out of retirement” great. If you haven’t guessed it by now, I’m talking about the spectacular return of NARP Meets World. But if you thought distance would make the hearts of my editors warmer, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you that is fake news.
Men's Nordic Skiing:
On the final two weekends in February, the Big Green swimming and diving teams capped off their seasons at the Ivy League Championship meets. The men and women both finished last, but Holder and his athletes say the championship performances bode well for the program.
Dave Harmon ’17 will leave Dartmouth as one of the top swimmers in school history. The Severna Park, Maryland, native owns the College records in the 100-yard butterfly (47.9 seconds) and 200-yard butterfly (1.48.6s), the latter of which he set in 2014. Harmon’s record-setting performance in the 100-yd fly at last weekend’s men’s Ivy League Championship was the highlight of the meet for the Big Green.
As spring training signals the open of the 2017 season, Major League Baseball is once again embroiled in a controversy regarding its relationship between its past and present. Last year, Bryce Harper began his “Make Baseball Fun Again” campaign, critiquing the uptight, traditionalist baseball establishment that limited a player’s ability to express himself. Harper expressed a resentment for the “tired” nature of the game and hoped to see more players express themselves through their style of play. This season, everyone affiliated with the game is caught up in the issue of the pace of play. The consensus is that baseball games take too long and need to be streamlined to attract new and younger fans.
With spring quickly approaching, Dartmouth softball is out in full force, seeking its third league championship in four years. Last season, the Big Green finished with a 27-15 overall record and a 15-5 record in conference play. While Dartmouth was a favorite to win the league crown, the women lost 8-5 against Harvard University in a winner-take-all Game 2 in the Ivy League’s North Division. Harvard later lost to Princeton University in a best-of-three series.
A 7-21 overall record is likely not what first-year women’s ice hockey head coach Laura Schuler and her team had in mind coming into the team’s 2016-2017 campaign. It became apparent after an 0-5 start, including a 5-1 loss to Harvard University — who finished the season with a 5-19-5 record — that Schuler, the head coach of Canada’s women’s national team, would need time to point Dartmouth in the right direction.
In the past two weeks, both the men’s and women’s squash teams traveled to compete in national championships, and both returned to Hanover with hardware to show for it. The men won the College Squash Association’s Hoehn Cup last weekend, and the women took the Kurtz Cup on Sunday.
In her final days at Dartmouth, Abbey D’Agostino ’14 was known on campus as the most decorated Ivy League athlete ever. In 2013, she became the first Ivy League athlete to win an NCAA Cross Country National Championship, going on to win six more NCAA titles by the time she graduated.
The Dartmouth sat down with three athletic administrators — senior associate athletic director for physical education & recreation Joann Brislin, director of fitness Hugh Mellert and coordinator of intramural and club sports Theresa Hernandez — to talk about the nuts and bolts of PE and intramural sports.
In the past two weeks, the men’s basketball team has been playing much better than its record would suggest. While the team is 6-17 overall and 3-7 in the Ivy league, most of those losses came at the beginning of the season. Over the past three weeks, Dartmouth has recorded impressive wins over in-conference rivals Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania and Brown University. The team’s 3-7 conference record places it in a sixth place tie with Cornell University. However, with Penn and Columbia tied for fourth in the league off 4-6 records, there remains a chance for Dartmouth to finish in the top four, thereby earning a spot in the inaugural Ivy League Tournament and a chance at an NCAA tournament bid.
