Former turf manager Mike Wade improves fields with startup

(04/21/17 5:55am)

Behind Burnham Field’s pristine green grass and Memorial Field’s resilient FieldTurf surface are Dartmouth sports’ turf managers, who ensure the fields are among the finest in the Ivy League. However, after three years at the College, one of the turf managers, Mike Wade, left Dartmouth for Keene State College to pursue his startup idea for technology to aerate and maintain high-end sports fields. Wade’s last day at the College was April 14.

Senior Spring: Joby Bernstein goes from David to Goliath

(04/17/17 6:15am)

Everybody loves an underdog. Whether it’s Rudy Ruettiger or the Hickory Huskers, there’s nothing like watching an athlete or a team rise above expectations to achieve something great. We can add the Dartmouth men’s swimming team’s co-captain Joby Bernstein ’17 to the list — quite an accomplishment for a kid who was afraid to enter water for two years after his mother tried to jump-start his swimming career.

Just a Bit Outside: On Bryce Harper, baseball's most polarizing superstar

(04/17/17 6:20am)

By now, the baseball and sporting worlds are both familiar with Bryce Harper. He was introduced to the world as a 16-year-old high school student anointed by Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci as “baseball’s LeBron.” He debuted in the majors in 2012 at just 19 years old. The chosen one had arrived. Now 24, Harper has piled up the accolades: National League Rookie of the Year, an NL MVP award, a Silver Slugger and four trips to the All-Star Game. In 2015, Harper became what he’d always been advertised as, a true superstar. That was his MVP season, but it came during an underachieving 83-79 season for his Washington Nationals.

Just a Bit Outside: On Kyle Schwarber and the perfect lineup

(04/10/17 5:20am)

0 for 4, 0 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. That is Kyle Schwarber’s stat line from the 2016 regular season. Schwarber, an Indiana University product, played just two games last season before tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee in a collision with Dexter Fowler in left-center field. If you don’t understand why Chicago Cubs brass is so high on Schwarber, consider the following: .412, .500, .471. That is Schwarber’s slash line from the 2016 World Series, stats the Ohio native accrued after playing no pro baseball between early April and late October. When asked before Game 1 of the Fall Classic began when he thought he might be able to return to the Cubs lineup, Schwarber responded “about six days ago.”

Senior Spring: Fabian Stocek '17, from the cradle of skiing to the king of the hill

(04/10/17 5:15am)

It couldn’t be more fitting: Dartmouth’s top cross-country skier hails from a town known as “the Cradle of Czech Skiing.” Surrounded by a family of Nordic enthusiasts, Fabian Stocek ’17 discovered his passion for cross-country skiing at a young age in the small town of Jilemnice, one of the Czech Republic’s northernmost towns, right on the edge of the Krkonoše mountains.

Senior Spring: Soccer co-captain Holly Patterson '17 comes home

(04/03/17 6:20am)

The city of Hamilton, New Zealand is nestled in the Waikato region of the country’s upper North Island. It is also the hometown of women’s soccer midfielder, co-captain and leading scorer Holly Patterson ’17. As Holly and I sat down to chat about her journey to Hanover and her Dartmouth experience, she had to have known that the question was coming: how did she possibly get from Hamilton to Hanover?

One-on-one with George Christopher '20

(04/03/17 6:10am)

The men’s lacrosse team has won just one game this season thus far, but its freshman goalkeeper George Christopher ’20 has been a relative bright spot. A touted prospect who played at Washington, D.C.’s Gonzaga College High School, Christopher was recruited by former Big Green coach Andy Towers but now plays under head coach Brendan Callahan, a fellow Gonzaga alumnus.
