Things are worse than ever. Our final Winter Carnival is in the books and all the traditions we once held dear, everything that we once lovingly cradled to our bosom, has been robbed from us by the idiotic and corrupt College administration. The polar bear plunge. Canceled because “Occom Pond was unsafe.” The snow sculpture. Abandoned because “there was no snow on the Green.” (Although we do appreciate the efforts of Thomas “Riddle” Rover ’16 and his rogue snow sculpture.) Hoverboards. Banned from campus merely because their “lithium ion batteries were prone to spontaneous combustion.” Now, finally, College President Phil Hanlon and his hunchbacked lackeys have gone too far.
From Feb. 18 to 20, the Big Green women’s swim and dive team is competing for not only bragging rights and rankings, but also for team goals and individual bests in the Ivy League Championship in Princeton, New Jersey.

The Dartmouth spoke with the team before it left for the meet.

Dunn is one of 49 players in the 2016 Women’s Eagles national team player pool, while Ramage is one of 38 in the age-grade national team player pool.

First off, John and I would like to extend our best wishes to Chris Bosh, who currently may be facing another life threatening blood clot injury. Bosh, who is a two-time champion and an 11-time All Star, has been a class act since entering the NBA, and we hope that he will be back to health soon.

The split leaves the Big Green’s record at 13-11-1, 10-8-0 ECAC, good for a tie with RPI for fifth in the ECAC.

Desperate to escape a four-game losing streak that has cast a pall over prospects for conference success, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team entered last weekend with a chance to prove itself against the best team in the Ivy League, as well as a contest against a more evenly matched side.
