With the snow melting and muddy grass taking its place, it seems that spring is finally here for Hanover. Along with the warmer weather, spring brings the start of a new season for men’s and women’s track. The two teams traveled south over spring break to train for and begin their outdoor season.
The men’s tennis team went undefeated in its four spring break matches, winning the 61st Ralph O’Connor Rice Invitational to give the team momentum entering Ivy League play, which begins this weekend.
Dartmouth and the Ivy League are better known for their academics than for their sports teams. However, that’s not to say that stellar athletes haven’t catalyzed their professional careers in the friendly confines of Hanover or the rest of the conference. Kyle Hendricks ’12 is the most recent Ivy Leaguer from the college to reach Major League Baseball stardom.
Men’s basketball forward Adrease Jackson ’21 will transfer from Dartmouth. Evan Daniels, Director of Basketball Recruiting at 247Sports and a college basketball insider for Fox Sports 1, broke the news on Twitter on Wednesday.
The Dartmouth ski team’s season came to an end with a fourth place finish at the NCAA Skiing Championships on March 9 at the Trapp Family Lodge and Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont.

Katharine Ogden ’21 took home the national champion title in the women’s 15k classical and Tanguy Nef ’20 won the men’s slalom.
The men’s hockey team’s season ended on March 16 with a 4-3 overtime loss to Harvard University, as the Big Green fell to the Crimson for the second straight year in the Eastern College Athletic Conference quarterfinals.

The softball team traveled to California over spring break to play a challenging slate of games in preparation for upcoming Ivy League play. The team competed in the California State University Northridge/Loyola Marymount University Tournament and played a total of seven games out west before returning to the East Coast for its conference opener against Columbia University. As the defending Ivy League co-champions with Harvard University, the team is looking to build upon last season’s success after hiring new head coach Jennifer Williams.
While the Dartmouth baseball team was able to escape the cold during its spring break trip to Florida, it was not able to escape difficult competition.
With the clock ticking on the 2018-19 season and the field of teams competing for a bid to the Ivy League tournament narrowing, the Dartmouth women’s basketball team travelled to the Mid-Atlantic this past weekend to take on league leaders Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania. Though the Big Green came back to Hanover with two losses, their hopes for a tournament berth are still alive.
In 1985, Cami Thompson Graves and Peter Dodge ’78 found themselves in very different positions — but both trying to make it in professional skiing. The former had just graduated from St. Lawrence University and made the jump to the U.S. Ski Team, which took her to the 1985 World Championships in Seefeld, Austria. The latter was enjoying success on the pro tour, winning the slalom at the Peugeot tour national finals that year, his fifth season since he was rookie of the year in 1980.
Over the course of summer 2018 and winter 2019, I have written 14 installations of this column. At its inception, I was excited to bring to light the musings of someone who likes sports but doesn’t always understand them. For some context: when I started writing for The Dartmouth during my freshman year, I was just getting interested in sports and I thought that writing for the sports section would be a great way to connect with my new interest. I think that developed nicely into this column. It was a great, relaxed way to write during sophomore summer, and I had a lot of fun reflecting on my personal experiences. However, as of late I have found myself in the position of a Sporadic Fan, rather than an Accidental Fan. Thus, this column has become increasingly difficult to write. Indeed, finding topics to write about has become a weekly struggle. Because of that, my work will be appearing in a different capacity in The Dartmouth next term. The plan, if everything works out is to create a different column at the art section starting this spring.
Oh, hi March.
As finals encroach and The Dartmouth’s winter term production comes to its close, I’d like to conclude this term’s run of “Pucks in Deep” where I began — with John Tavares’ free agent signing in Toronto. In my first column of the term, I wrote about Tavares’ homecoming to Toronto and its terrifying implications for Leafs Nation. As I sign off for the term, I’d like to consider Tavares’ signing from the opposite perspective — that of the New York Islanders, the team that drafted Tavares first overall in 2009 only to watch him leave in free agency last summer having won just one playoff series in his tenure with the Isles.
A three-point weekend propelled the men’s hockey team into fifth place of the Eastern College Athletic Conference standings as the regular season came to a close. The Big Green lost 4-3 in overtime to Union College and earned a 5-2 victory over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The team will open the ECAC tournament next weekend at Thompson Arena in a best-of-three series against St. Lawrence University.
The theme of the men’s basketball season has been losing close game after close game in Ivy League play, and to some degree, the trend continued this weekend. Princeton University defeated Dartmouth 77-76 in overtime on Friday night, while the University of Pennsylvania knocked off the Big Green more convincingly with a 65-51 win the following night.
