Dartmouth (4-0) cruised to its 13th win in a row — including last season — after dominating Mount St. Mary’s 79-0 on the road in Emmitsburg, Md. on Saturday. For only the sixth time in women’s rugby history, Dartmouth scored over 70 points. 10 different players entered the try zone, helping the team record its first shutout win since the 2021 season, when Dartmouth last beat Mount St. Mary’s 70-0.
Most collegiate athletes have two coaches throughout their athletic career — their high school coach and their college coach. This presents a challenge when it comes to transitioning from one coach to another. Between different coaching styles, philosophies and workouts, it takes some time for athletes to adapt to a new coaching environment. Often, athletes who excelled under a previous coach struggle to find success under a new one, or even end up injured following unfamiliar training. And while most athletes only have to undergo this transition once in their lives, I have had to adapt to five different coaches in my just-over-two years at Dartmouth.

Dartmouth long snapper Josh Greene ’23 will be sharing his experience playing for the Big Green, covering topics such as the team’s preparation following COVID-19, the academic-sports-life balance required of an athlete at an Ivy League school and other musings on his experience in Hanover.

Although Dartmouth did not lose in overtime this week – as the team had the past two games – the Big Green’s 24-21 loss to Yale University after failing to complete a hardfought comeback was equally devastating. Now standing at 1-3 on the season and 0-2 in Ivy League play, the Big Green looks unlikely to repeat as Ivy League champion.

If you were to ask my mom how many times after a race she’s seen me happy, the answer would be somewhere in the single digits. After most races — even the good ones — I’m usually frustrated about something bad that happened in the race. Whether it’s that I started too fast, too slow, lost focus or made poor decisions, I often fixate on the bad things immediately after. This is how lots of runners tend to feel post-race, even if a race is a personal best.
Big Green volleyball played its second and third Ivy League games in Leede Arena this weekend. While the team fell short against Princeton University 0-3 on Friday, on Saturday, the team proceeded to take back the court and won against the University of Pennsylvania, 3-1.

For the first time since 2017, Dartmouth football has lost two consecutive games, this time against the University of Pennsylvania in a double overtime thriller. This comes on the heels of last week’s overtime loss to Sacred Heart University. The game, televised on ESPNU on Friday, saw both teams stumble into overtime at 10 points apiece, but the Quakers eventually got the best of the Big Green and closed it out at 23-17.
Henry Paulson ’68 is one of Dartmouth’s most notable alumni. As a member of the Big Green football team, he led the team to Ivy League titles in 1965 and 1966. After graduation, he obtained an MBA from Harvard Business School. Following a stint at the Pentagon and working in the Richard Nixon administration, he joined investment banking firm Goldman Sachs, where he was eventually named chief executive officer. From 2006 to 2009, he served as Secretary of the Treasury under President George W. Bush and managed the financial crisis of 2008. The Dartmouth sat down with Paulson to discuss how his Dartmouth experience helped to build his leadership skills and prepare for a remarkable career.
