Walk-on athletes find success in men’s and women’s rowing

(09/19/16 4:00am)

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.


The Boys are Back in Town

(09/29/16 6:29pm)

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?


Volleyball team has strong opening with first-year coach

(09/19/16 4:00am)

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?
