One-on-one with David Harmon

(03/03/17 6:40am)

Dave Harmon ’17 will leave Dartmouth as one of the top swimmers in school history. The Severna Park, Maryland, native owns the College records in the 100-yard butterfly (47.9 seconds) and 200-yard butterfly (1.48.6s), the latter of which he set in 2014. Harmon’s record-setting performance in the 100-yd fly at last weekend’s men’s Ivy League Championship was the highlight of the meet for the Big Green.


Tearing up the playbook: the present of America’s pastime

(02/27/17 7:10am)

As spring training signals the open of the 2017 season, Major League Baseball is once again embroiled in a controversy regarding its relationship between its past and present. Last year, Bryce Harper began his “Make Baseball Fun Again” campaign, critiquing the uptight, traditionalist baseball establishment that limited a player’s ability to express himself. Harper expressed a resentment for the “tired” nature of the game and hoped to see more players express themselves through their style of play. This season, everyone affiliated with the game is caught up in the issue of the pace of play. The consensus is that baseball games take too long and need to be streamlined to attract new and younger fans.


Softball team opens season, shares hopes to reclaim Ivy title

(02/27/17 7:15am)

With spring quickly approaching, Dartmouth softball is out in full force, seeking its third league championship in four years. Last season, the Big Green finished with a 27-15 overall record and a 15-5 record in conference play. While Dartmouth was a favorite to win the league crown, the women lost 8-5 against Harvard University in a winner-take-all Game 2 in the Ivy League’s North Division. Harvard later lost to Princeton University in a best-of-three series.


Women’s ice hockey team looks to keep building on foundation

(02/27/17 7:05am)

A 7-21 overall record is likely not what first-year women’s ice hockey head coach Laura Schuler and her team had in mind coming into the team’s 2016-2017 campaign. It became apparent after an 0-5 start, including a 5-1 loss to Harvard University — who finished the season with a 5-19-5 record — that Schuler, the head coach of Canada’s women’s national team, would need time to point Dartmouth in the right direction.





Dartmouth's athletic administrators talk about PE credit offerings

(02/20/17 7:20am)

The Dartmouth sat down with three athletic administrators — senior associate athletic director for physical education & recreation Joann Brislin, director of fitness Hugh Mellert and coordinator of intramural and club sports Theresa Hernandez — to talk about the nuts and bolts of PE and intramural sports.



Dartmouth men's basketball team looks to finish season strong

(02/20/17 7:15am)

In the past two weeks, the men’s basketball team has been playing much better than its record would suggest. While the team is 6-17 overall and 3-7 in the Ivy league, most of those losses came at the beginning of the season. Over the past three weeks, Dartmouth has recorded impressive wins over in-conference rivals Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania and Brown University. The team’s 3-7 conference record places it in a sixth place tie with Cornell University. However, with Penn and Columbia tied for fourth in the league off 4-6 records, there remains a chance for Dartmouth to finish in the top four, thereby earning a spot in the inaugural Ivy League Tournament and a chance at an NCAA tournament bid.



One-on-one with one of Dartmouth's top relievers, Patrick Peterson

(02/19/17 7:15am)

Patrick Peterson ’18 is a decorated right-handed pitcher on the men’s baseball team. In his freshman year, he was named a Louisville Slugger All-American and All-Ivy League First Team relief pitcher. In his sophomore year, he was a member of the All-New England Third Team and the All-Ivy League Team for the second year in a row. Most recently, Peterson was selected to be the 2017 National College Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Watch List as the only Ivy League representative. He enters his junior year with a perfect 7-0 record with 10 saves.



NARP Meets World: The Prodigal Son Returns

(02/20/17 7:05am)

I told myself I’d never venture down this godforsaken path again. I swore an oath with my right hand on my last column that I’d never write another NARP Meets World for the rest of my time here at Dartmouth College. Yet I find myself sitting in the deepest abysses of the stacks, attempting to procure a comedic smattering of entertainment from this tangled mess I call my brain. I am by every precedent and definition washed up, but I am here to dabble in the devil’s craft once more.


Tearing up the playbook: it's the Caps' year, again

(02/17/17 6:55am)

Well, it’s February, and, once again, the Washington Capitals are head and shoulders above the rest of the teams in the National Hockey League. In fact, the Capitals have the second most points in the league, have only lost three times in 2017 and have scored five or more goals in 11 consecutive home games. Furthermore, they are at the top of every NHL power rankings. They lead the league in Hockey-Reference.com’s “Simple Rating System,” which rates the relative strength of every team in the NHL. They are second in goals against average and rank among the best in the league on the power play and penalty kill. With this much success, how could the Capitals possibly lose?


Remembering the Dartmouth ski jump: 1929-1993

(02/21/17 1:30am)

For 64 years, two towers stood tall to distinguish Dartmouth from the New Hampshire countryside. Of course, the first was Baker Tower, erected in 1928 — Baker stood for the academic side of Dartmouth. The second was the ski jump, an 85-foot steel-and-snow behemoth whose silhouette looked over the golf course. For generations of college students, the jump — sometimes referred to by its location, the Vale of Tempe — symbolized the outdoor side of Dartmouth.


Carnival weekend recap

(02/13/17 7:05am)

One slalom run encapsulated the Big Green’s outing at Dartmouth’s 111th Winter Carnival. In his second descent on a brisk Saturday afternoon, Brian McLaughlin ’18 came charging down Winslow Ledge. He looked to be headed for a fast time when he stumbled on a section of the course which announcers Brian Francis ’18 and Nolan Kasper ’14 called “Hangman’s Corner.” McLaughlin hiked back to the gate and made it to the bottom, but he had lost seven seconds over his first run and finished in 35th place.


Tearing Up the Playbook: Super Bowl Recap Edition

(02/13/17 7:10am)

There are two obvious narratives when you watch a game with a big comeback: the comeback and the choke. The New England Patriots’ 31 unanswered points to defeat the Atlanta Falcons and win Super Bowl LI without having led the game for a single second certainly plays into both of these narratives. Epic drive after epic drive to tie the game by New England. Chance after futile chance for Atlanta to put the game away.


Men's hockey goalie masks tell personal stories

(02/13/17 7:25am)

There is a certain excitement that comes with watching a hockey team take the ice before a game. The lights in the arena are often dimmed, strobe lights are turned on, music plays upbeat tunes and the crowd rises to its feet. Teams are typically led onto the ice by their starting goalie, the last line of defense, who typically sports a set of pads with customized color patterns to represent his institution. One may also notice the goaltender’s glistening chrome cage reflecting the spotlight as the team skates around. Look a little closer, however, and you will catch a glimpse of what a goalie would refer to as the most significant piece of his gear: the mask. Yes, the mask protects the one who wears it from the damage of 90+ mile per hour slap shots, but the reason why a goaltender’s mask is so special often has nothing to do with being on the ice. A thorough analysis of a goalie mask, therefore, requires not just insight into the design itself but also familiarity with the man who wears it.


Giegerich brothers redefine sibling duos on the squash courts

(02/13/17 7:15am)

Many students on Dartmouth’s campus have been fortunate enough to have younger siblings follow in their footsteps to take advantage of what the Big Green offers. If they are lucky enough to attend Dartmouth at the same time, they can share in the opportunities open to students while creating their own individual identities. This is true of the Giegerich brothers. Brian Giegerich ’18 and Matt Giegerich ’19 are not only among the community of siblings on campus but are also two talented athletes on the men’s squash team.
