In my last column, I looked to the past as a form of comfort; now, I want to look to the future as a way to find some excitement within the monotony of quarantine. I’ve been passing my time a few ways this term — the golf courses opened back up too (thanks Cuomo!) — including following college basketball news to try to get a better idea of how the landscape might turn out next year. Here’s my real quick Ivy League prediction:
After reaching the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association semifinals this fall, five players from the women’s rugby team received postseason honors on April 17. Idia Ihensekhien ’21 and Ariana Ramsey ’22 were named to the All-NIRA Tier 1 Team while Kristin Bitter ’23, Sophia Haley ’22 and Marin Pennell ’21 received honorable mentions. Although unable to play the spring season, the Big Green followed up its 2018 NIRA Championship by winning the 2019 Ivy Rugby Championship and advancing to the NIRA Championship semifinals, where Dartmouth fell just short in a one-point loss to Harvard University.
It’s been six weeks since the last professional sporting event took place and March Madness and The Masters were canceled. But starting tonight, however briefly, live sports are back.
Will Graber ’20 is no stranger to scoring in Thompson Arena. After four years with the Big Green, Graber finished his career with 95 points overall, frequently leading the team in assists and helping the men’s hockey team across the finish line in many games.
During a normal spring term, athletic recruits visit Hanover and Big Green coaches travel around the country scouting for potential recruits. But this is not a normal spring term.
Bob Gaudet ’81 announced his retirement on Wednesday after 23 years as head coach of the Big Green hockey program.
Dartmouth spring-sport seniors were not alone in their devastation when they saw their last season in a Big Green uniform slip away. For spring-sport athletes in other conferences, the blow of losing spring season was softened by the NCAA Division I council’s March 30 decision to allow schools to grant their spring-sport athletes — regardless of class year — an additional year of eligibility. The Ivy League, however, chose not to afford athletes the opportunity to apply for eligibility extensions, a decision in line with the league’s long-standing policies.
This is a story about a man who is one of the most important Dartmouth alumni you’ve probably never heard of.
In elementary school, Katie Spanos ’20 dreamed of donning Carolina blue, following in the footsteps of Mia Hamm to become an elite soccer player.
Behind Dartmouth men’s tennis’s return to national prominence over the last few years are two players: Charlie Broom ’20 and David Horneffer ’20. Their accomplishments span both the tennis court and the classroom. With a combined four All-Ivy First Team singles awards, two NCAA tournament appearances in doubles and a career-high doubles national ranking of No. 7, the duo have been the face of the program for the last three years.
From a young age, I mastered the art of what I call “constructively criticizing those aspects of the world around me that are objectively unsatisfactory.”
The storied Dartmouth football career of Isiah Swann ’20 concluded in fairytale fashion.
I’ve had a lot of time to think recently.
To say that the 2020 Eastern College Athletic Conference hockey season was a whirlwind would be an understatement, particularly for the Big Green. Finishing the season with a 13-14-4 record overall and 10-10-2 in the conference, Dartmouth just fell short of a winning season but had many strong performances that showcased its prowess.
Being confined to my house over the past few weeks has got me to thinking a good deal about crowds.
Dartmouth’s remote format has posed new challenges for student-athletes. Away from campus, many have to now consider how to both stay in shape with limited resources and engage with their teams through virtual platforms. With the Ivy League’s cancellation of all practices and competitions for the remainder of the academic year, sports that have main competitive seasons in the spring have taken the brunt of the impact. However, other teams still utilize the spring term for development and training, and they are also getting creative to work around these new mandates.
Brendan Barry ’20 is coming back.
After an exciting season, the Dartmouth ski team headed to Bozeman, Mont., to compete in the NCAA Championships, hosted by Montana State University, from March 11 through March 14. While the team arrived hoping to walk away with a national title, they were abruptly sent home after the NCAA suspended the event mid-competition due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the cancellation, the team was able to fit in two days of skiing and top-ten finishes.
Dartmouth started the 2019-2020 season projected to finish sixth in the Ivy League standings, and it ended there too.
This season, the typical Dartmouth basketball game went something like this: a hot start, a struggle in the middle, a furious comeback, a close loss. It is only fitting that the team’s season would follow the same arc.
