Three members of the Big Green rowing family, Walter Banfield ’17, Bobby Moffitt ’16 and men’s heavyweight head coach Wyatt Allen, skipped the pond at the end of August to compete at the 2016 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in the Netherlands. Banfield rowed the men’s lightweight single sculls, his third appearance at Worlds, while both Moffitt and Allen represented the Big Green — and the United States — in the men’s eight. In his third appearance as a coach at Worlds, Allen took on a new role as the lead coach of the eight. Moffitt sat in the bow, a departure from his role in the middle crew at Dartmouth.

From the U.S. Women’s National Team suing U.S. Soccer this year for wage discrimination to the splitting of rifle shooting based on gender in the 1984 Olympics after Margaret Murdock tied for first place with a man in the then-mixed event during the 1976 games, sports and gender have always had a complicated relationship. Female coaches still make less than male coaches. In the 2014-2015 season at Dartmouth, head coaches of men’s teams averaged salaries of $125,311 while head coaches of women’s teams had an average salary of $86,595. Assistant coaches of men’s teams made on average per full time employee $64,090 while their counterparts on women’s teams averaged $56,414. Of the 13 full-time head coaching positions of men’s teams, all 13 are filled by men. Of the 15 full-time head coaching positions of women’s teams, six are filled by men and nine are filled by women. Of the 35 assistant coaching positions of men’s teams, 30 are filled by men and five are filled by women. Yet, of the 29 assistant coach positions of women’s teams, 13 are filled by men and 16 are filled by women. So, in general, men can coach women, but women can’t coach men, and the gender of the athletes you coach determines how much you can make.
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.
The No. 1 Quinnipiac University Bobcats and unranked Princeton University Tigers trekked north to Hanover this weekend to face off with the Dartmouth men’s ice hockey team, in the receiving votes category, bringing with them two completely different stresses. The first brought with it the challenge of simply being the best team around. The second brought with it the pressure of performing in front of the over 4,000 people that turned out to take part in Dartmouth’s annual tradition of assaulting the visiting Tigers (3-9-2 overall, 5-14-2 ECAC) with tennis balls following the Big Green’s (11-9-1 overall, 8-6-0 ECAC) inaugural goal. Dartmouth split the weekend, pulling ahead of the current national powerhouse 5-2 before allowing four unanswered goals and an empty netter to put them on the wrong side of a comeback, dropping the contest to the Bobcats (20-1-5 overall, 11-0-3 ECAC) 7-5. The Big Green returned to Thompson Arena to shutout the Tigers 2-0 on Saturday.
There is not a single rugby player in this world that has not been yelled at by his ten. Not setting a proper platform for the kick? Trying to run a pick when the call is to get the ball out? Generally doing anything that is not helpful to what the flyhalf wants to do in that moment? Breathing in a space where your ten is upset? It can make you wonder how Dawit Workie ’17 ever ended up at flyhalf.
The men’s ice hockey team (0-2, 0-2 ECAC) dropped its two season-opening games against no. 11 Harvard University over the weekend, losing 7-0 at home on Saturday night and 5-2 at Harvard on Sunday night. Harvard (2-0, 2-0 ECAC) was powered primarily by a dynamite offense — shaping up to be one of the top packs of forwards in the NCAA — and managed to keep the Big Green offense in check by taking away its centering pass option and keeping Dartmouth off balance in the paint.
The men’s ice hockey team finished up its preseason last weekend with a crushing 7-0 victory over the University of Prince Edward Island Panthers, ushering in its season with a strong start. The Big Green will play Harvard University in its home opener this Saturday followed by a second match on Sunday. Though early in the season, the back-to-back games will be critical for the Big Green, as the Crimson was picked to finish third by the media and first by the coaches in the ECAC preseason polls. By comparison, the College was picked to finish seventh and ninth by the media and coaches, respectively. While it is sure to be a difficult game, there are also few better ways to go into a game of that importance than on the success of a seven-goal shutout.
After enough swings, a baseball bat becomes an extension of the clean-up hitter’s arm. Skates define the way a defenseman relates to winter. Jerseys become identities franchise players wear day and night. The game the athlete plays becomes a fundamental part of who he is, and in many cases, that’s a good thing.
In its Ivy League opener this past Sunday at its home Chase AstroTurf Field, the field hockey team fell to No. 20 Princeton University 7-3, bringing the overall season record to 3-4. The Tigers (3-4, 1-0 Ivy) have been a continual powerhouse among the Ivies, taking the league title alone or sharing it every year since 2005 and maintaining a 20-game Ivy winning streak dating back to Sept. 2011.
A group of students, under the guidance of women’s, gender and sexuality studies professor Pati Hernandez, spoke on the subject of what Hernandez calls Dartmouth’s “invisible walls” on Wednesday night through the program Telling My Story on Campus. The students shared testimonies from across the spectrum focused around one of the College’s most visible and pervasive social divides — those between the hierarchy of Dartmouth athletes, intramural through varsity, and Dartmouth “NARPs,” campus shorthand for non-athletes.
On Sunday, former Dartmouth women’s track and cross country star and 13-time All-American runner Abbey D’Agostino ’14 earned a spot in the World Championships in Beijing. The Dartmouth sat down with her to discuss her post-graduate running career, her training plan and this most recent success.
As the members of the Class of 2015 prepare today to embark on the rest of their lives — jobs, service opportunities, enrollments in continuing education in high-up and far-off places — two seats are left vacant, filled only by the flowers in honor of the memories of Blaine Steinberg ’15 and Torin Tucker ’15. But their roles in this community can be described as anything but empty.
