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.
With a win against Princeton University on Sunday, No. 44 women’s tennis clinched a share of the Ivy League title and with it, the team’s second-ever NCAA tournament bid.
The infield shift, once reserved for elite hitters, has become ubiquitous in professional baseball. In 2016, FiveThirtyEight called the shift “this decade’s defining baseball tactic.” As teams tap deeper into the analytics well, they have taken to using spray charts — diagrams indicating where a given batter tends to hit balls — to determine hitters’ tendencies and to adjust their fielders in response.
Jamie Susanin ’17, one of two seniors on the women’s golf team, has consistently led Dartmouth in scoring performance all season. Making a resurgence from a quiet junior year season, Susanin helped the Big Green secure a fifth-place tie at the Ivy League Championships with Brown University this past weekend.
An integral and often unnoticed part of a rowing crew is the coxswain. In fact, many consider the coxswain to be the most important member of the crew. That said, outside of the rowing community, few seem to have a clear understanding of what a coxswain does — or even how to spell it.
After the conclusion of each season, the women’s ice hockey program bestows the Sarah Kennedy Award to a junior or senior who has demonstrated selflessness, perseverance, dedication to Dartmouth on and off the ice and sincere love of ice hockey. Mackenzie St. Onge ’17 was given this year’s award as a fitting end to the Stowe, Vermont native’s hockey career at Dartmouth.
Behind Burnham Field’s pristine green grass and Memorial Field’s resilient FieldTurf surface are Dartmouth sports’ turf managers, who ensure the fields are among the finest in the Ivy League. However, after three years at the College, one of the turf managers, Mike Wade, left Dartmouth for Keene State College to pursue his startup idea for technology to aerate and maintain high-end sports fields. Wade’s last day at the College was April 14.
Everybody loves an underdog. Whether it’s Rudy Ruettiger or the Hickory Huskers, there’s nothing like watching an athlete or a team rise above expectations to achieve something great. We can add the Dartmouth men’s swimming team’s co-captain Joby Bernstein ’17 to the list — quite an accomplishment for a kid who was afraid to enter water for two years after his mother tried to jump-start his swimming career.
Courtney Weisse ’17, an attacker on the women’s lacrosse team, leads the Big Green with 34 goals and 38 points this season. Weisse has scored at least one goal in every game this season and has scored five goals on three occasions, most recently on Saturday versus Cornell University.
By now, the baseball and sporting worlds are both familiar with Bryce Harper. He was introduced to the world as a 16-year-old high school student anointed by Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci as “baseball’s LeBron.” He debuted in the majors in 2012 at just 19 years old. The chosen one had arrived. Now 24, Harper has piled up the accolades: National League Rookie of the Year, an NL MVP award, a Silver Slugger and four trips to the All-Star Game. In 2015, Harper became what he’d always been advertised as, a true superstar. That was his MVP season, but it came during an underachieving 83-79 season for his Washington Nationals.
