Emily Henrich ’22 became the first Dartmouth rugby player to receive the MA Sorensen Award. Presented by the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, the award is given annually to the top women’s rugby player in the country. Kat Ramage ’19 was also nominated for the award.

After a lengthy legal battle that went all the way to the New Hampshire Supreme Court, contractors finally began construction on a new indoor practice facility on campus this past winter.

Dartmouth offers its athletes the opportunity to play at a competitive NCAA level while engaging them in an academic community as rigorous as it is rewarding. Last week, a large number of Dartmouth’s athletic teams won Academic Progress Rate Public Recognition Awards — honors bestowed upon teams who land in the top 10 percent of APR’s scoring. APR rewards teams for maintaining high rates of “academic eligibility” and “retention” among their players. With 18 Big Green teams earning this award, Dartmouth tied Brown University, Columbia University and the College of the Holy Cross for the most teams honored.

With a national championship win this fall, the Dartmouth women’s rugby team secured its spot as a powerhouse in the sport. However, many forget that there is a men’s team that competes at a high level year-round. The Dartmouth Men’s Rugby Football Club, although not an official varsity sport like the women’s team, has a legacy of success in the Ivy League and across the nation. With 23 Ivy League cup championships over 47 years, seven straight Ivy League Sevens championships since 2012, two USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby championships in 2011 and 2012, five National XV Final Fours, two National XV Championship Runner-Ups and one D1AA XV Championship Runner-Up finish, it is undeniable that the DRFC has been able to sustain success over time.
