“As sure as God made green apples, someday the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series.”
Former Big Green goalkeeper Stefan Cleveland ’16 knows quite a bit about winning. The 6-foot 1-inch Dayton, Ohio native has had the perfect college career. After riding the pine behind the incumbent Noah Cohen ’14 his freshman year, Cleveland has made a name for himself on the pitch as a premier goalkeeper both during his time at the College and now at the University of Louisville.
With 35 varsity sports, 33 club sports and 24 intramural sports and more than 75 percent of undergraduates participating, it is safe to say that a love for athletics runs deep at the College. However, not many people know the evolution of Dartmouth’s varsity athletics program, beginning in 1769. This week, The Dartmouth explores the history of sports at the College through an overview of landmark events, traditions and obscure sports.
Carmen Braceras ’20 grew up playing ice hockey. At Dartmouth, she is using those skills to play for the field hockey team. Braceras, a freshman from Concord, Massachusetts, began playing field hockey in middle school. She played varsity at Concord-Carlisle High School, and she currently leads the team with 13 points.
Sophomore year, year two or just a second chance; I have a theory that things only get better when you’re still kind of new to it, but not too new. Whether it’s a rookie baseball player who at first failed to meet tremendous expectations forced to toil in the minors for a year, recalled back up again to help carry his team to the National League Championship Series or a Dartmouth student who needs his freshman year to figure out the wild game and phenomenon of “pong,” 2016 has been the year for just getting adjusted to shine.
I promised myself I would never do this again, yet I once again find myself in the land beyond the pride. Going against every single thing I have learned in Disney’s “Lion King,” I find myself with no choice but to venture down to the darkest realms Dartmouth has to offer.
Baseball fans love to bring up the lack of a clock in baseball. No matter what happens in the first inning, you have to record all 27 outs to win the game. The difference between this and say, a 60-minute football game, is subtler than it might seem. In football, a big hit might set a tone that carries a team through all four quarters. An early lead of just two touchdowns may quickly seem insurmountable for the opposing side. No matter how much time is on the clock, momentum is always critical in sports with time limits. One takeaway can completely shift the complexion of a game, and that shift can last for the game’s duration.
It was only last fall when Tony Choi ’16 followed through on his dream to form a powerlifting club at Dartmouth. Despite its humble beginnings, the club accomplished extraordinary feats in its first year, sending nine students to a regional competition in Brooklyn, New York and later sending five to compete at the USA Powerlifting Collegiate National Championship in Providence, Rhode Island held on April 14 to 16.
From 2014 to 2016, the men's soccer team's goals, shots and shots on goal vary greatly but feature a similar trend.
Growing up, every child who has ever played a sport has admired an older or professional player. While few ever meet their idols, even fewer have the opportunity to play for them. Zoë Leonard ’19, however, is one of the few playing for her childhood idol Tara Hittle, an assistant coach for the women’s volleyball team.
The men’s soccer team is the only varsity team at Dartmouth to achieve back-to-back Ivy League titles in the past few years. But even that claim might somehow understate the program’s successes when considering the critical role the freshman class played in both championship seasons.
The Beginning of a New Era
I get it. Vin Scully is really good at announcing baseball games. He tells anecdotes that make the game come alive. He’s been with the Los Angeles Dodgers forever, or at least since 1950 when the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn. That’s all well and good, but I didn’t grow up in Los Angeles, and I’ve never once listened to a Dodger game on the radio. I was at the game last summer, when Scully announced he’d be back for a 67th and final season, but I have to say it didn’t have much of an effect on me. Scully didn’t play any role in my baseball experience as I got into the sport, so while I respect his undoubtedly remarkable career, his retirement will not affect me or my love for baseball.
I love the San Francisco Giants. I’ve loved them ever since Barry Bonds was still hitting home runs and we didn’t think he was a dirty cheater, since Tim Lincecum was the best pitcher in Major League Baseball for like three years, since we started winning the World Series every even year since 2010. Max, shouldn’t you be very concerned that the Giants have dropped the first two games of the National League Division Series to the Chicago Cubs? Yes, and to be completely honest, it kind of feels a lot like how I came out the gate failing my first microeconomics quiz last week: not good at all but weirdly remaining confident that the Giants will not be eliminated and that I will not have to end up dropping micro.
It's week four, and The D's sports staff is back to offer its picks for the biggest Ivy League games, including Dartmouth versus Yale and Harvard versus Cornell.
After receiving the Booma Award as the men’s hockey team’s rookie of the year two years ago and the Manser Award as the team’s most improved player last year, Carl Hesler ’18 received perhaps one of the biggest honors of his athletic career: being named the 118th team captain in the program’s history.
Chuyang Guan ’20 opted to play for Dartmouth instead of turning pro.
