At 5 feet 2 inches, Cy Lippold ’19 does not have the physical frame of the typical basketball player. But that certainly has not stopped her from playing some of the most competitive college basketball in the nation. The star senior point guard, who was born and raised in the Bronx but spent the second half of her childhood living in Pennsylvania, said that her height actually inspired her to get good at the sport.
Many people criticize baseball for being a slow-paced game without a lot of scoring. Scores like 3-1 and 4-3 are very common at all levels, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has been trying to increase the number of runs scored since he took office. But lately, the Dartmouth baseball team has found itself in more high-scoring affairs with scores that would be more common in football games than baseball games.
The NBA playoffs kicked off with several upsets over the weekend. Is this the year of the underdog (at least in the earlier rounds, before the Warriors inevitably sweep in the finals)? Or are we just overreacting once again? Here are my hot takes for the first round.

The Dartmouth cycling team has quite a rich history; founded in 1961 by Dan Dimancescu ’64, who helped the University of Connecticut win a national championship in 1961 before transferring to Dartmouth, the team has won six national championships and had five individual champions since its inception. Of course, as there was limited competition at the college level back then, bikes were made of steel, clothes were made from wool and helmets were optional.
There is only one Dartmouth sport undefeated this spring following a national championship season: women’s rugby.
Following a dominant victory over the University of Connecticut on Tuesday, the No. 20 women’s lacrosse team’s six-game winning streak came to an end Saturday when the Big Green’s second-half comeback against No. 17 Princeton University fell short.

If there is one thing linebacker and co-captain Jack Traynor ’19 has always been good at, it’s tackling: tackling the most high school opponents in Illinois history (378), tackling the second-most (98) foes in the Ivy League last year and tackling an impressive engineering course load. Though his knowledge of the game has evolved, Traynor has consistently been a highly aggressive player on the field.

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.
