It’s not everyday that most of us find ourselves running through an unfamiliar forest in search of checkpoints. For most, the thought of having to navigate during a race without the use of a phone is a nightmare. Yet it’s precisely this combination of speedy decision-making skills, physical endurance and map interpretation abilities that is essential to orienteering, a navigation race that originated in Scandinavia in the late 19th century.
This past Sunday was far from a lazy one for Phil Claudy ’18. While most students were sleeping in, Claudy was racing in the IRONMAN Chattanooga Triathlon in Tennessee. He had never competed in a triathlon before, but now he was racing in a distance at the very highest level of the sport.
This week, The Dartmouth sat down with Quinn Cooney ’19, a member of the cross country and track and field teams. In his first collegiate cross country meet, Cooney led the team to a win at the Dartmouth Invitational with a first-place finish in the 8-kilometer course, which he ran in 25:16:01.
This week I wasn’t going to write my column. No, not because I hate all of my two readers. And no, not because I’m disgustingly sick (freshman plague, am I right guys?) but because nothing really happened that much in sports, until it did. It was one of those moments where the universe was about to mess you up badly just because you hadn’t had anything that awful happen to you for a while.
After reaching the NCAA tournament last year for the first time in Dartmouth history, Taylor Ng ’17 and Kristina Mathis ’18 enter this fall ranked 10th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Division I Preseason Doubles rankings. This coomes after Ng and Mathis went 14-2 last season and qualified for the NCAA Doubles Championship this past May. When they were selected for the NCAA tournament, they were ranked 20th.
Since Colin Kaepernick first knelt during the national anthem before a San Francisco 49er preseason game on Aug. 14, his protest has prompted a national referendum on social injustice in the United States.
Doubles partners Kristina Mathis ’18 and Taylor Ng ’17 are ranked 10th in the ITA Preseason following last season’s successful run.
Walter Banfield ’17 competed in the men’s lightweight single sculls at the U-23 Worlds.
The D's sports staff offer their picks for which football teams will win in week 2 of Ivy League play, including Dartmouth versus Holy Cross and Yale versus Cornell.
Three members of the Big Green rowing family, Walter Banfield ’17, Bobby Moffitt ’16 and men’s heavyweight head coach Wyatt Allen, skipped the pond at the end of August to compete at the 2016 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in the Netherlands. Banfield rowed the men’s lightweight single sculls, his third appearance at Worlds, while both Moffitt and Allen represented the Big Green — and the United States — in the men’s eight. In his third appearance as a coach at Worlds, Allen took on a new role as the lead coach of the eight. Moffitt sat in the bow, a departure from his role in the middle crew at Dartmouth.
Sports are commonly thought of as an escape from life’s problems. Fans often view professional athletes as characters in a story rather than normal people in the “real world.” It’s why we care so much when Steph Curry is spotted at Starbucks getting a s’mores frappuccino or Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan roots for Donald Trump.
In 2015, the Chicago Cubs relied on Jake Arrieta, the ace of their pitching staff, and its young and supremely talented core of position players, to carry the team to a 97-win regular season and a wild card berth in the National League Championship Series.
As fall gets underway, the rowing team heads back onto the Connecticut river, hoping to take the next step toward success and prominence. The team is powered by the athletes who row in the top boats, which typically feature individuals who have competed in rowing at a high level for a long time. But unlike most Division I sports, the Dartmouth rowing teams rely heavily on athletes who are not recruits but walk-ons.
Among the most crucial components of the 2015 Ivy League-winning championship season was a roster laden with experienced senior players. It paved the way for Dartmouth’s greatest success in 19 years. But it’s for that same reason that 2016 poses so great of a challenge for the program. Ten of the 11 starters that made up one of the strongest defenses in the entire country left Hanover after the 2015 season. Another seven on offense departed as well, including Dalyn Williams ’16, one of the best quarterbacks in Big Green history. And so arises the question that will likely define this team’s season: how do you make up for such losses at every key point on the roster?
In just a mere three weeks, Dartmouth’s women’s volleyball team (6-4) has already accumulated half as many wins as it did last season (12-11). The Big Green closed out five of their six wins thus far in straight sets, already beating their 2015 record of sweeping only two games. With such a promising start and 15 matches left in this season, the team is currently on par with a promising trajectory. The question thus remains: why is the women’s volleyball season finding success so early on in this season compared to last year’s?
