The NFL season has unfortunately come to a close, which has left me with just about nothing to talk about during the last few weeks. I tend to think I’m less fun in the offseason, whereas most would probably just say that I’m less annoying. Nonetheless, with no college or NFL games to look forward to until September, I, along with many other middle-aged dads, find myself in desperate need of a new hobby.
This past weekend, the Dartmouth men’s hockey team took to the road for its final set of away games in the regular season. Defeating St. Lawrence University 5-2 on Friday but falling 4-0 to No. 5 Clarkson University on Saturday, the Big Green came out of the weekend with two points, and is now ranked sixth in the Eastern College Athletic Conference.
After sweeping its first Ivy League back-to-back in five years last weekend, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team (10-15, 3-7 Ivy) was mere inches away from doing so again.
The No. 18 Big Green women’s lacrosse team continued its strong start to the season with a 16-8 win over Boston University Saturday afternoon at Scully-Fahey Field. Dartmouth put the pressure on the Terriers early and was able to keep it up the whole game. The 2019 Ivy League champions return to action next weekend at Brown University in its first conference game of the season.
The softball team will be beginning its season this weekend as it travels to Charleston, SC to compete in the Charleston Classic.

Over Valentine’s Day weekend, Big Green men’s hockey took on Ivy League opponents Brown University and Yale University on home ice in Thompson Arena.
Happy winter everyone, it’s good to be back. Some quick hits from around the country: The Big Ten is a bloodbath, and I can easily see the conference sending more than 10 teams to the NCAA Tournament; the ACC might only send three teams to the tournament in a down year; and San Diego State University is the lone remaining undefeated team in college basketball — and it doesn’t seem like the Aztecs will lose any time soon. Some early bracket busters for March to watch for: Northern Iowa University, Brigham Young University and East Tennessee State University.
The women’s basketball team split games this weekend against Columbia University and Cornell University in two hard fought road battles. Despite falling to the Lions 73-63 on Friday, the Big Green ended its six-game losing skid on Saturday with a 67-65 win over the Big Red as Elle Louie ’21 nailed a game-winning jumper with 13 seconds to go.
For the first time in five years, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team (9-14, 2-6 Ivy) swept an Ivy League back-to-back weekend.
After appearing in the NCAA tournament for the first time in six years and securing a share of the Ivy League title last season, the women’s lacrosse team will head into the 2020 season ranked third in the conference and No. 22 in the nation. Under new head coach Alex Frank, the Big Green will look to build on last year’s title and finish deeper in the bracket.
The Big Green had a challenging weekend at home against Brown University and Yale University, getting down early in both games and falling short in its comeback attempts. After opening Ivy League play with a win against Harvard University, Dartmouth has now lost its last five conference games, including the last four at home, and eight of its last nine games overall.
Through this column, I’ve been fortunate enough to teach my faithful readers some life lessons. A few weeks ago, I went straight to my social psychology textbook and discussed the power of the situation. Last week, I gave my East Coast audience an introduction to California culture — and probably shocked any investment banker readers by proposing the notion of going to work in khaki shorts and polo shirts. I don’t need to check the records to know that my dad rocked such a combination Monday morning. Or he might have hit the gym in the morning to blow off steam and then gone straight to the office in workout clothes. Those are the only two possibilities.
At some point, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team is going to have to turn its bursts of success into wins.
The Dartmouth men’s and women’s squash teams, both ranked No. 9 in the nation, wrapped up their regular seasons this weekend and will be competing in the postseason at the end of the month. The men’s team, after a 7-2 loss at home against Yale University on Friday, stormed back against Brown University to earn a 6-3 win on Sunday. The No. 9 women’s team also lost to Yale on Friday 8-1, but came back two days later to beat Brown, 5-4.
The Dartmouth skiing teams headed up to Maine this past weekend to compete in the Colby Carnival. The teams improved on their two third-place finishes this season, beating Middlebury College by four points to take second. The University of Vermont won its third straight carnival with 899 points.
