Hot Takes: Sophomore Stars

(10/17/16 4:01am)

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.

Just a Bit Outside: 27 Outs

(10/17/16 4:02am)

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.

Powerlifting Club to compete at first Ivy League Championships

(10/14/16 4:15am)

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.

Big Green volleyball brings player and coach ‘full circle’

(10/10/16 4:06am)

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.

Just a Bit Outside with Sam Stockton '19

(10/10/16 4:02am)

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.

Hot Takes with Max Zhuang '19

(10/10/16 4:00am)

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.

Freshmen Guan and Broom transition well to college tennis

(10/03/16 4:20am)

Many freshmen athletes have started off great seasons on both varsity and club teams here at Dartmouth, but two freshmen have gone above and beyond. Last weekend, two freshmen athletes on the men’s and women’s tennis teams concluded very successful season openers. Chuyang Guan ’20 of the women’s tennis team went undefeated in singles, winning all three matches in straight sets, at the Tribe Invitational held by the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Likewise, Charlie Broom ’20 of the men’s tennis team also went undefeated, going 4-0, in singles at the Ivy Plus Invitational held by Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. Both freshmen have earned many past accolades prior to their collegiate debuts and have been nationally ranked at the junior level.
