Halfway through the 162-game Major League Baseball season, 13 of the 15 National League teams were within six games of the playoffs as of Thursday morning. Other than the .671 Los Angeles Dodgers who led their division by 12 games, every team in the NL had a winning percentage below .600, with 11 teams between .450 and .540.
At the end of each academic year, The Dartmouth’s sports section puts up players to be voted upon by the student body as the best of the best. In this year’s The D Sports Awards, five of the top rookies, five of the top female athletes and five of the top male athletes at Dartmouth were pitted against each other. The winners emerged after 481 popular votes were cast by members of the Dartmouth community. The D is happy to announce Emily Henrich, Tanguy Nef and Kierra Sweeney as the winners of this year’s awards.
If there is one thing linebacker and co-captain Jack Traynor ’19 has always been good at, it’s tackling: tackling the most high school opponents in Illinois history (378), tackling the second-most (98) foes in the Ivy League last year and tackling an impressive engineering course load. Though his knowledge of the game has evolved, Traynor has consistently been a highly aggressive player on the field.
Men’s basketball forward Adrease Jackson ’21 will transfer from Dartmouth. Evan Daniels, Director of Basketball Recruiting at 247Sports and a college basketball insider for Fox Sports 1, broke the news on Twitter on Wednesday.
Jennifer Costa ’21 left Connecticut a hero on Saturday night, netting the game-winning goal against Quinnipiac University with just over one minute remaining in overtime. The clinching goal was the first of the forward’s career and gave the Big Green an unlikely first win of the young season against a premier hockey school on the road. I sat down with Costa to discuss her clutch score at Quinnipiac and her 16-year hockey career leading up to that point.

Sophia Kocher ’21 set a Dartmouth equestrian record this past Saturday at Middlebury College, tallying up a perfect 42 points in her first six shows and becoming the first Dartmouth rider to go undefeated at every regular season competition. Her distinguished performance elevates her from the Advanced Walk Trot Canter class to the Novice Flat and Fences class while also qualifying her for Regionals. The equestrian team is off to a 2-0 start, in large part due to Kocher’s seven points earned in each week’s victory. The Dartmouth sat down for a one-on-one discussion with Kocher about her equestrian career, her path to Dartmouth and more.
Isiah Swann ’20 catalyzed a lockdown defensive effort last Saturday versus the College of the Holy Cross, hauling in three interceptions within the first half. Swann’s historic performance was the first of its kind since Sal Sciretto ’92 intercepted three passes in 1990. Dartmouth landed a 34-14 win over Holy Cross to give for a 2-0 record before Ivy League play begins this Saturday versus the University of Pennsylvania. The three interceptions give Swann four on the year, and netted him Football Championship Subdivision national defensive player of the week honors as well as his second consecutive Ivy League defensive player of the week award. I had the opportunity to sit down with the Arizona native to talk about the Holy Cross game and get deeper insight on him in general.
Dartmouth Football made a landmark signing on Tuesday, hiring Callie Brownson to assume the role of offensive quality control coach. Brownson will be the first full-time female coach in Division I football after demonstrating her extensive playing and coaching skills and a fierce passion for the game. Prior to securing the full-time position, Brownson had been assisting the team throughout a two-week internship in Hanover during the preseason under invite from head football coach Buddy Teevens ’79. Teevens recruited her and Chenell “Soho” Tillman-Brooks for the internship out of the Manning Passing Academy, where they served as two of 16 women at the first women’s clinic.
Veteran head equestrian coach Sally Batton recently announced that the 2018-19 season will be her last. Recipient of the 2013 Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Lifetime Achievement award, Batton will retire from an illustrious 29-year career that saw the Big Green win five Ivy League championships, highlighted by a 2014 team appearance in the IHSA Nationals.
When the typical Dartmouth student thinks about the importance of athleticism in Dartmouth’s history, they may focus on annual traditions such as running around the Homecoming bonfire, diving into Occom Pond for the Polar Bear Plunge or hiking The Fifty. But Dartmouth sports also have a storied history of success as well, as the Big Green has produced professional athletes since the late 19th century.
While baseball co-captain Dustin Shirley ’18 has filled the stat sheet and impressed with his sheer athleticism in his time at Dartmouth, his impact off the field and his journey to get there reflect an intriguing story as well.
When approaching the season, most athletes agree that there is nothing that beats the feeling of being home. After a stretch of away games, things seem to come together effortlessly competing at home with an adoring crowd, playing on a familiar field or court and being surrounded by known officials. This week, The Dartmouth examines how that home field advantage affects the performance of the Big Green’s various athletic teams.

The varsity eight for Dartmouth men’s heavyweight rowing has a new look this season with a trio of freshmen and a mix of three sophomores and a junior replacing their five departed rowers. The crew’s three freshmen, Caleb Edmundson ’21, Evan Dwinell ’21 and Paul Gralla ’21, form an atypically young roster as Austin Heye ’18, Noah Van Dyke ’18 and coxswain Jake Rauh ’18 are the only upperclassmen who have consistently filled varsity eight slots this season.
