Giordano ’16 and Whitehorn ’16 named All-Americans

(06/30/16 9:30pm)

Dana Giordano ’16 and Kaitlin Whitehorn ’16 ended their collegiate careers with a whirlwind finish. Both seniors placed third and earned First-Team All-American honors in their respective events at the NCAA Track and Field Outdoor National Championships in Eugene, Ore., on June 11. Giordano completed the 1500-meter race in a school-record 4 minutes, 11.86 seconds, and Whitehorn cleared a height of 5 feet 11 1/2 inches in the high jump.

First Team: Erasable Memories with Ray Lu '18

(06/30/16 9:30pm)

Sophomore summer is too easy. As the summer staff at The D rotates through editor positions under the careful and trained eye of editor-in-chief Rebecca “A-Side” Asoulin ’17, I’ve enjoyed the week off to lounge on the Green and hand in “First Team” five hours late to this week’s sports editor Vikram Bodas ’18 — who turned his own articles in on-time a grand total of zero times in the spring. Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to “getting money,” or so the saying goes.

Dartmouth's football team looks to analytics to gain an edge

(05/22/16 10:21pm)

It’s no question that last season was a landmark one for Dartmouth football. The Big Green reached the FCS Top 25 rankings, had nationally acclaimed offensive and defensive play, eventually had players sign with or try out for professional teams and, above all else, secured a share of the Ivy League championship for the first time in 19 years. But at a more technical and even philosophical level, the team also took an innovative step.

Just a Bit Outside: Why the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Should Trade the Best Player in the Major Leagues

(05/22/16 10:20pm)

The Angels aren’t terrible. No one is going to mistake them for the streaking Chicago Cubs, but they aren’t the woefully bad Atlanta Braves either. To put things into perspective, going into May 16, the Cubs run differential was +109, and the Braves had scored 109 runs. To be sure, the season was still young, and both teams’ fortunes could easily change. But at this point, those two franchises represent the poles of the MLB. The Angels are somewhere in between. For the Braves, who as of May 16 had yet to win 10 games (the last team in the League that still hadn’t done so), there is reason for optimism. Atlanta boasts a farm system that ESPN’s Keith Law recently rated baseball’s best. They may be laughable now, but Atlanta has studs like shortstop Dansby Swanson or pitcher Sean Newcomb waiting in the wings. Compare that to the Angels. On Law’s list, the Angels were proclaimed to have the dead worst farm system in baseball, going as far as saying that it was the worst he’d ever seen since he began evaluating farm systems.

One-on-one with Vernon Harris '16

(05/18/16 10:15pm)

This week, The Dartmouth had a chance to talk with standout cornerback Vernon Harris ’16. The 6-foot-2-inch Fort Lauderdale, Florida native was recently signed by the Kansas City Chiefs. Harris left school early to participate in the Chiefs’ rookie mini-camp and is now preparing himself for training camp at which he will fight to make the 53-man regular season roster. In total, eight Dartmouth seniors have earned professional opportunities this year.

Men’s tennis wraps up stellar season at NCAA tournament

(05/18/16 9:15pm)

On May 14, the Dartmouth men’s tennis team lost to No. 31 Tulane University 0-4 in the first round of the NCAA tournament at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Prior to playing Tulane, the team was on a red hot six-game win streak that began on April 3, having defeated all seven of the other Ivies except Columbia University, to whom the team lost 2-4 on April 2. The loss to Tulane marked the end of an overall strong season. The team went 18-9 in the regular season, and finished in second in the Ivy League behind Columbia with a 6-1 conference record, losing only to the undefeated Lions. The team also made its first appearance in the NCAA tournament since 1997.

One-on-one with new swimming head coach James Holder

(05/15/16 9:00pm)

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.
