Initial attempts to contact men’s soccer co-captain and starting goalkeeper James Hickok ’17 proved fruitless. Then I received a reply from him saying that he had been on the road in Spain wrapping up a trial with a professional club in Spain. Not a bad excuse by any means.
Frankie Sands '19 is The Dartmouth's Female Athlete of the Year. She amassed 1,989 total votes in a landslide victory. Rugby player Yejadai Dunn '16 won the award last year. Sands, the center and captain, in her first season after transferring to Dartmouth from Norwich University, was named a finalist for the Sorensen Award, given to the best collegiate women’s rugby player in the nation. In the fall, Sands was third on the team in points and her seven tries was second-most on the Big Green squad. She was also named as one of the team’s captains for next year.
The Dartmouth's Moment of the Year is men’s hockey edges then-No. 11 University of Michigan in season opener. The hockey team's victory received 39 votes. With the score knotted 2-2 late in the third period, Cam Strong ’20 looked to have given Dartmouth the lead. After a seemingly interminable video replay, the goal was waved off due to goalie interference. But with the final seconds ticking away, Troy Crema ’17 fired a quick wrist shot inside the far post. The puck got a favorable bounce off the skate of Corey Kalk ’18 and beat the University of Michigan goalie low, giving the Big Green its first win over the Wolverines since 1971.
Troy Crema '17 is The Dartmouth's Male Athlete of the Year. Crema received 811 votes. Crema erupted during the 2016-17 season to lead the Big Green in nearly every offensive category, including goals, points and shots on goal. In Dartmouth’s regular season opener on Oct. 29, Crema scored the game-winning goal against then-No. 11 Michigan University with 49 seconds left in the final frame.
At the end of every season, regardless of the sport, pundits sit down and analyze the postseason, seeking to identify playoff trends that might inform the coming regular season. This process tends to lead to lots of articles in the vein of “How the Atlanta Falcons’ Super Bowl Run Changed the National Football League.” On the heels of last year’s Major League Baseball playoffs, these articles tended to focus on the Cleveland Indians’ bullpen, especially lanky left-hander Andrew Miller. If you don’t believe me, The Ringer, in its coverage of last year’s playoffs and this year’s season preview, published articles entitled “The Indians and Andrew Miller Are Reshaping How We Think About Elite Reliever Usage,” “It Might Be Miller Time at a Ballpark Near You: Searching for Every MLB Team’s Andrew Miller” and “Welcome (Maybe) to the Next Phase of Baseball’s New-Look Reliever Age.”
When Plumb Marigold, fictional Olympic hopeful and the protagonist of the just-released indie film “Tracktown,” laces up her shoes to run, the world watches. People stare. They whisper.
For most standout high school athletes, the next step after graduation is obvious: college sports. But some students of the Mormon faith, like Big Green football players Tanner Aiono ’20 , Justin Call ’16 and Anders Peterson ’20 choose to put off college for two years to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In January, Matt Burke ’98 was promoted to defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins after serving as its linebackers coach in 2016. Burke, a walk-on safety with the Big Green, is entering his 14th year working in the National Football League after getting his big break from defensive guru Jim Schwartz in 2004. Now at the helm of the Dolphins defense, with six rookie defensive draft picks in the 2017 NFL Draft this past April, Burke is at a new peak in his career.

On a cold, rainy Hanover Sunday in October 2015, the Dartmouth field hockey team found itself up 3-2 over Columbia University as the second-half clock ticked away. With two and a half minutes to go, a Dartmouth midfielder entered the left side of Columbia’s half-circle with the ball and a full head of steam. The player fired a pass toward the far post where no teammate could be found.
Yesterday, on Sunday Night Baseball, the New York Yankees retired Derek Jeter’s number two, ensuring that the legacy of its soon-to-be Hall of Fame shortstop does not soon fade — as if anyone could possibly forget that career — and that no Yankee will wear a single-digit jersey again. (One and three through nine are also retired. If you want to take a journey through the history of baseball, try to remember who wore each of those jerseys.)

This season Dartmouth shared the Ivy title with Harvard University and Cornell University, clinching Ivy League’s automatic NCAA tournament bid by virtue of a complicated tiebreak scenario. The last season the women’s team finished first in the Ivy League was 2011.

Last week, I told you about the burgeoning feud between Manny Machado and the Boston Red Sox. Well this week, a four-game set at Fenway Park between the Sox and Machado’s Baltimore Orioles did little to ease the tension between the two ball clubs.
