It’s getting closer people. The time of the year when families come together during college basketball’s biggest stage and say things like, “I picked the wrong upsets this year,” “Duke is overrated” and “Where in the country exactly is Creighton again?” As the selection committee prepares to pick the teams to field the NCAA Tournament, I’d like to take a look at some of the teams that are right on the edge of making the tournament and if these teams have a chance of making some noise down the stretch.

The Ivy League Heptagonal Indoor Championships brings together all eight Ivy League schools to compete for the conference title every year. The host location rotates between Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth and Harvard University. This year, it is Dartmouth’s chance to host the meet at Leverone Field House. Because each school only hosts Heps once every four years, this year’s indoor Heps presents a unique opportunity for the men’s and women’s Big Green track and field teams, according to women’s track and field co-captain Bridget Douglas ’18.
When thinking about sports, some people typically consider different games, matches and meets and the many rules associated with the sport. Others may think about their own experience as an athlete and the fond memories associated with it. Still, some may think about their favorite teams and athletes. Although these are vital components of sports, the unsung heroes in athletics are the fans. Fans are a crucial part of games as they have the ability to rally behind teams after a challenging defeat or advocate for them in their biggest triumphs.
Last season, Dartmouth baseball finished 22-17-1 overall and 11-9 in Ivy League conference play, but the team understands that no success is guaranteed in the quest for its first Ivy League Championship since 2010.
In the final days leading up to the start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, two current Dartmouth students were added to Team USA’s roster for alpine skiing: Alice Merryweather ’21 and Tricia Mangan ’19, neither of whom competed with Dartmouth’s ski team this season.
The Dartmouth women’s ice hockey team concluded its season with a difficult road trip against Clarkson University and St. Lawrence University. Dartmouth has largely struggled with tough competition this year. Despite Clarkson and St. Lawrence both currently ranked in the top 10 in the NCAA, the Big Green hoped to finish its season off strong.
When men’s alpine skier Tanguy Nef ’20 was finally home in Switzerland for Christmas — during a long winter break that saw him complete 18 races across three countries — he knew he needed to relax. So Nef strapped on his skis once more and headed out with his family for a weekend of fun in the Alpine village of Saas-Fee. The sport has a peculiar hold on those who practice it. Skiing pulls you in. If you ski, there’s a good chance your brother skis as well. Maybe you grew up racing against your sister. More than likely, your parents put you on snow before you were 10 and you never left.
A ‘Wild Season’ for NCAA Men’s Basketball Makes Tournament Predictions Difficult
Cy Lippold ’19 has emerged as a key contributor this year for Dartmouth women’s basketball, leading the team with 12.8 points per game at point guard, while leading the Ivy League with 5.4 assists per game and snatching the fourth most steals per game in the league. With Amber Mixon ’18 no longer on the roster this season, the point guard position was vacant and Lippold fought her way into the starting role. Lippold has made a meteoric rise this season. Previously, Lippold scored averages of 1.1 and 2.1 points per game and averaged 6.7 and 7.9 minutes per game her first two seasons, respectively. This season, she has started all 21 games, playing 33.3 minutes per game on average, while leading the 12-9 Big Green to a successful season start and program’s first ever wins over Atlantic Coast Conference and Pacific-12 teams.
With high spirits, loud crowds and several mops of green and pink hair, the Big Green ski teams won the Dartmouth Carnival for the first time since 2010.
While travel is a major component of every Dartmouth team’s season, the time spent on the road and the accommodations athletes receive differs among teams.
This past weekend, two Dartmouth alumni — Emily Dreissigacker ’11 and Susan Dunklee ’08 — took the slopes for Team USA in the biathlon, competing in the women’s 7.5-kilometer sprint. The biathlon combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting for a fast paced and exciting event. While both athletes have excelled in the sport, their journeys to the Olympics has been drastically different.
As the men’s squash regular season comes to a close, the Big Green has placed itself in a position as one of the top eight teams in the College Squash Association eligible to compete for the Potter Cup at the 2018 Men’s National Team Championship in Hartford, Connecticut. Dartmouth has defeated No. 8 University of Rochester, No. 7 Princeton University and No. 9 Yale University in the last few weeks.
Road wins are difficult to come by in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, a conference where all but four teams sport a .500 or above record at home. This weekend, the men’s hockey team went out in search of two of them.
Well guys, we did it.
