Arguably the most overused phrase in sports is taking the season one game at a time. But as the baseball team enters its last two weeks of Ivy League play, it is going to need to stick to this cliché in order to have any chance of reaching the Ivy League championship in spite of its current sixth-place standing.
The Dartmouth men’s heavyweight rowing team began its season with a resounding victory in Worcester, MA over the College of the Holy Cross, Columbia University and the Massachussetts Institute of Technology. The Big Green still face an uphill battle this season against other league opponents, having lost to Yale University in all five races Saturday, April 13.
The No. 13 women’s lacrosse team earned a ticket to the Ivy League Tournament with a 15-8 victory over Cornell University on Saturday. The win marked the final home game of the season for the Big Green and followed a 22-6 rout of the University of Vermont on Tuesday.
The women’s rowing team raced their first and last home regatta last weekend against Boston University. It’s the only weekend this spring season they have to represent the Big Green on the Connecticut in front of friends and supporters, so naturally the team wanted to deliver a good result. And did they ever.
The seats at most sports games in Hanover aren’t packed, but a near constant across Big Green athletic events is fan support from fellow student athletes. The Dartmouth Sports Staff took a closer look at what drives so many student athletes to take time out of an already hectic balance between their sport and their academics to support other teams.
A typical first-year in many college sports gets minimal playing time as he or she adjusts to the difficulty of collegiate athletics. However, that hasn’t been the case this season for the Dartmouth baseball team.
Pucks in Deep: A Wild Start to the NHL Playoffs
At 5 feet 2 inches, Cy Lippold ’19 does not have the physical frame of the typical basketball player. But that certainly has not stopped her from playing some of the most competitive college basketball in the nation. The star senior point guard, who was born and raised in the Bronx but spent the second half of her childhood living in Pennsylvania, said that her height actually inspired her to get good at the sport.
Many people criticize baseball for being a slow-paced game without a lot of scoring. Scores like 3-1 and 4-3 are very common at all levels, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has been trying to increase the number of runs scored since he took office. But lately, the Dartmouth baseball team has found itself in more high-scoring affairs with scores that would be more common in football games than baseball games.
The NBA playoffs kicked off with several upsets over the weekend. Is this the year of the underdog (at least in the earlier rounds, before the Warriors inevitably sweep in the finals)? Or are we just overreacting once again? Here are my hot takes for the first round.
Pucks in Deep: Hard to Catch Lightning
Gray skies and less-than-ideal temperatures did little to quell the Dartmouth track and field teams’ success in their first and only home meet of the outdoor season. The combined efforts of the Dartmouth women earned them first place overall with 235 points, nearly twice as many points as second-place University of Vermont. The Dartmouth men also secured first place with 181 points, a 27-point lead over Vermont.
The No. 24 women’s lacrosse team used a second-half scoring run to earn a signature win of its season against the No. 9 University of Pennsylvania. Down 7-4 one minute into the second half, the Big Green went on an 8-1 run to gain the lead and win the game with a score of 15-11.
This fall, Zoe Leonard ’19 finished her final season as the Dartmouth volleyball team’s libero, but her history with the sport spans much longer than the past four years.
The Dartmouth cycling team has quite a rich history; founded in 1961 by Dan Dimancescu ’64, who helped the University of Connecticut win a national championship in 1961 before transferring to Dartmouth, the team has won six national championships and had five individual champions since its inception. Of course, as there was limited competition at the college level back then, bikes were made of steel, clothes were made from wool and helmets were optional.
There is only one Dartmouth sport undefeated this spring following a national championship season: women’s rugby.
Following a dominant victory over the University of Connecticut on Tuesday, the No. 20 women’s lacrosse team’s six-game winning streak came to an end Saturday when the Big Green’s second-half comeback against No. 17 Princeton University fell short. The 14-12 loss marked the first home defeat in six games at Scully-Fahey Field for Dartmouth.
