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?
The D's sports staff offer their picks of which football teams will win in week 1 of Ivy League play.
Rankings aren’t everything when thinking about the best school, and that’s also true for the men’s soccer team. Despite ranking well in a number of lists, the team is thinking about more than just the numbers as they head into the season.

As Dartmouth welcomes in a new class of students, the women’s rugby team welcomes Stacey Bridges as its new assistant coach. But unlike eager first-years with months to plan and pack for their arrival, Bridges arrived empty handed, having been offered her position only in August.
Hot Takes: The Warriors (Week of Sept. 5 to Sept. 12)
Abbey D’Agostino ’14 is the most decorated Ivy League athlete in history. At Dartmouth, D’Agostino was a seven-time National Champion, a 16-time Ivy League Champion, a 12-time All-American and a 15-time Regional/National Award winner. D’Agostino is sponsored by New Balance and participated in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where she was awarded the 2016 Rio Fair Play Award for her headline-making actions in the 5,000-meter race with Nikki Hamblin.
Abbey D’Agostino ’14 and Nikki Hamblin both received the Fair Play Award for sportsmanship by the International Fair Play Committee, supported by the International Olympic Committee, on Saturday.
Each week Vikram Bodas ’18 and Sam Forstner ’18 will tackle a controversial issue in the sports world. Much like home field in baseball, each week one of the writers will take their stance first (“away”), allowing the other to respond with an argument of their own (“home”). This week they will be debating each other as to the participation of elite professional basketball players in the Olympics.
Abbey D’Agostino ’14 made national headlines this past Tuesday after tripping over fallen New Zealand runner Nikki Hamblin in the preliminary round of the women’s 5,000-meter race and helping her back up. D’Agostino and Hamblin finished the race and were advanced to the final by default, but D’Agostino was forced to withdraw from competition with a torn ACL and meniscus. D’Agostino finished the last mile of the race despite her injuries.
As Dartmouth welcomes a new class of students to campus, the various Big Green athletic teams will soon see their programs infused with new talent. The Class of 2020 recruiting class hails from across the country and the world, and like several members from the previous freshman class, could easily impact the Ivy League in their first season in Hanover. What follows are short profiles of some of these incoming athletes.
The author of “First Team” has not slept very much recently. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he hasn’t slept at all. However, I have to pull through for my boys, namely sports editor Chris Shim ’18. Incoming: 800 words — but just that. Coherency need not apply.
