This week, The Dartmouth breaks down the four strokes used in competitive swimming.
The great state of California may be best known for recreational marijuana and the Golden State Warriors. However, I would argue that the California culture combined with the trendiness of our juggernaut super team has created ideal conditions for the best pickup basketball. Everyone is down to play. Third-graders want to be Stephen Curry. Girls swoon over Klay Thompson, dads are constantly throwing a fit over Draymond Green’s antics and — oh wait, did I forget to mention Kevin Durant?
When you take a look at upper-tier National Football League quarterbacks, one thing is immediately apparent: they all get paid a lot. Aaron Rodgers’ average annual salary is north of $22 million a year. Russell Wilson takes home just under that mark. Matt Ryan of the National Football Conference champion Atlanta Falcons makes over $20 million a year. I don’t bring this up to say someone like Rodgers is overpaid. Rodgers is probably the best thrower the NFL has ever seen. He deserves every cent that someone will pay him. The problem is that when you give one player that much money, it becomes extremely hard to build an elite team in other areas.
With a highly decorated new coach to point the Big Green program in a new direction, the women’s hockey team entered the 2016-2017 season eager to shake off last year’s 6-19-3 season. This season has seen a repeat of last year’s struggles, likely the growing pains associated with a rebuilding program and a new coaching system. The Big Green currently sit second-to-last in the ECAC Hockey standings, only in front of Union College, who the Big Green defeated in a 2-1 nail biter on Jan. 13.

On March 10, 2016, the Ivy League announced its decision to implement a four-team postseason tournament for men’s and women’s basketball. The Ancient Eight is the last of the 32 Division I leagues to switch to a postseason tournament to determine its guaranteed NCAA championship bid.
The Dartmouth men’s basketball team, currently 0-2 in the Ivy League, is vying for a spot in the postseason tournament.
In the first half of the 2016-2017 men’s hockey season, Dartmouth did not capitalize on its man advantages. After going 0-for-5 on the power play against the University of Michigan, and 0-for-6 against Cornell University, registering just four shots on the man-advantage and surrendering a short-handed goal to the Big Red, it was evident that something was not right. Even an astonishing eight power-play opportunities was not enough for Dartmouth against Colgate University, despite defeating the visiting Red Raiders 2-0. For the first seven games of the season, the Big Green power-play unit yielded a flurry of incomplete passes, turnovers and a surprisingly low number of quality scoring chances. Up until the Big Green’s eighth game of the season at Robert Morris University on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016 — during which Dartmouth netted its first and second power-play goals of the season — the Big Green was an astonishing 0-for-42 on man-up opportunities.
If chess were a sport, how would it be played? According to Annie Blasberg ’20, it might look a little like “tennis in a box” — or as it’s commonly known, squash.

The women’s basketball team has an unusually young roster with just one senior, Fanni Szabo ’17, and six freshmen. As a result, Szabo has been thrust into a leadership role both on and off the court. In the team’s game two weeks ago against Harvard University, a 70-65 loss on the road, Szabo demonstrated her leadership and integral role on the team as she led the Big Green in scoring with 16 points, while playing all 40 minutes.
