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.)
The No. 45 women’s tennis team will take on No. 17 University of Kentucky this Friday in a regional NCAA tournament match hosted by the University of Michigan. The Big Green ended its season with a strong overall record of 17-4 and a 5-2 record in the Ivy League. 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.
Matt Rube ’19, co-founder of the Dartmouth Climbing Club, was one of two climbers who represented the Big Green at the 2017 Collegiate National Rock Climbing Championships in San Diego, California. Rube advanced to the Speed Finals, finishing in sixth place, and helped secure Dartmouth’s ninth-place team finish.
This season, the Big Green women’s lacrosse team got 229 draw controls to its opponents’ 159. Draw specialist Kathryn Giroux ’19 had 108 of those, a mark which was eighth in the nation and beat the previous conference record by four. Giroux sat down with The Dartmouth to break down some of her seven draw controls in the season finale, a 12-8 triumph over Brown University.
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.
Trevor Johnson ’20 has made a name for himself during his first season as the Big Green’s centerfielder. The first year had a stellar rookie campaign, appearing in 39 of Dartmouth’s 40 games during the season, starting 38 of them. He finished the season batting .250, hitting primarily out of the leadoff spot, tallying four home runs and 21 RBIs. His efforts were rewarded with two Ivy League rookie of the week selections and one co-player of the week throughout the season.
If men’s heavyweight rowing captain Spencer Furey ’17 had his wish as a high school senior, he’d be spending his weekends on the tennis court instead of on the water.
Dominant. The one word that pops into every baseball fanatic’s mind upon hearing names like Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens and Mariano Rivera. Had you seen Michael Danielak ’16 pitch for Dartmouth this past season, you would describe him with the same word.
When men’s track and field head coach Barry Harwick and women’s track and field head coach Sandy Ford-Centonze walked into Leverone Field House on Monday, Feb. 27 — the day after the 2017 Indoor Heptagonal Championships — they had to walk past a countdown clock. That day, the clock read “69,” numbering the days until the 2017 Outdoor Heptagonal Championships. There’s no way for athletes and coaches to avoid seeing that clock as they walk in the building, and on Saturday, it will read zero.
Orimolade and Miller sign with NFL teams
Frankie Sands ’19, a recent transfer from Norwich University, has dominated the rugby scene, earning her top honors nationally. Most recently, she was named as one of four finalists for the Sorensen Award, given to the best collegiate women’s rugby player in the nation. While Sands has found success here at Dartmouth and throughout her career, her journey to rugby has been anything but conventional.
It started with a slide by Manny Machado, an ugly slide to be sure, on Friday, April 21. What followed was a war of words between the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox that crescendoed when Matt Barnes’ pitch narrowly missed Machado’s head two games later. As is the case whenever teams exact vigilante justice by throwing at an opponent, a conversation on baseball’s unwritten code of conduct ensued.
You could go on and on reading Taylor Ng ’17’s on-court accomplishments with the women’s tennis team. Three-time All-Ivy selection in singles and doubles. Ivy League Player of the Year. Class of 1976 Award as Dartmouth’s female athlete of the year — as a sophomore. And her talents extend beyond the baseline. An economics and anthropology double major, Ng also received the Class of 1948 Scholar-Athlete Award as the Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
