When you walk into Thompson Arena, the features you are most likely to notice are the larger-than- life portraits that line the rink’s walls depicting Dartmouth graduates who have gone on to careers in professional hockey. Undeniably, the College has a strong presence in the NHL.
Dartmouth men’s and women’s swimming and diving recently hired James Holder as its new head coach. Holder comes to Hanover after he finished six seasons as the head coach of Georgetown University’s men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams. During his tenure, Georgetown swimmers broke 60 school records and racked up 56 All-Big East recognitions. In 2014-2015, Holder was named the Big East Men’s Co-Coach of the Year and Hoya swimmer Molly Fitzpatrick became the first swimmer in Georgetown history to make an Olympic trials cut.
Though I am now someone who frequently checks the results of every single baseball game and tries to analyze sabermetrics, I was not interested in baseball for much of my life. The first time I enthusiastically went to a baseball game was after the Los Angeles Dodgers signed Hyun-Jin Ryu, the first player to come from the Korean Baseball Organization. The biggest spending team in Major League Baseball submitted a bid of $25,737,737.33 to the Hanwha Eagles, the Korean team that had Ryu under contract at the time, and the Dodgers ultimately signed Ryu to a six-year, $36 million contract. From that point forward, I continued to follow the Dodgers and visited Chavez Ravine more frequently to see Ryu rather than Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw, who won his second Cy Young that year. What captivated me the most was seeing someone of the same nationality as me playing for the team that represented the city I call home.
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Dartmouth volleyball co-captain Paige Caridi ’16 first started playing the sport because of her height. Although she also tried tennis, swimming, track and soccer, volleyball soon became her passion.
Last Saturday, on a cloudy 50-degree spring day in Hanover, Jacob Flores ’16 nervously waited for a phone call that he had been hoping to receive his entire life. He decided to go to church to find solace in this time of nervous anticipation.
The women’s ice hockey and volleyball squads are next in a series of teams to see a new face at the helm for the upcoming se-ason.
Less than two weeks ago, the Dartmouth baseball team’s chances of representing the Red Rolfe Division in the Ivy League championship — for the eighth straight year — looked slimmer than ever. Tied atop its section with Yale University entering a four-game series against the Bulldogs at home, the Big Green dropped three consecutive games before salvaging the fourth. Plunging two games back in the loss column with only one weekend of regular season baseball left, Dartmouth had no choice but to hope to receive some extra help.

At home in Hanover, the co-ed sailing team placed seventh out of 18 last Sunday at the New England Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association Dinghy Championship, qualifying them for the Inter-collegiate Sailing Association National Championship in San Diego, California. In collegiate sailing, there are three main events: team fleet racing, women’s fleet racing and co-ed fleet racing. Over the past two weeks, both the women’s fleet and team fleet racing teams qualified for nationals, making this year the first time since 2007 all three events qualified for the national championship.
As the clock crept towards 1 a.m. on a Wednesday night midway through spring term, a lone figure remained seated, leaned forward in his chair, captivated by his laptop computer. That figure was Eduvie Ikoba ’19, the freshman forward who helped Dartmouth clinch its second Ivy League title that sent them to the NCAA Tournament. On the screen, Major League Soccer forwards dribble through defenders, rocket shots past goaltenders and emulate the tiki-taka style made famous by FC Barcelona.
A skeptical laugh broke the silence in a press conference on Wednesday, challenging newly hired men’s basketball coach David McLaughlin’s hopes of having his new staff hired in just two short weeks. But McLaughlin, standing tall and calm at the front of the room, did not miss a beat, expounding upon his plan to turn the men’s basketball team into a competitive Ivy League program. The staff, McLaughlin continued, will all need to “breathe the same air” in order to pull good recruits and make progress in Hanover.
