With an overall 7-1 record thus far, the Dartmouth Women’s Lacrosse team has been on fire. As the team reaches the midpoint of the season, it is ranked 19th in the nation — the first time it has been within the top 20 since 2013 — and is recently coming off of two big wins against Ivy League rivals Princeton University and Harvard University.
This past weekend, the men’s hockey team played in its first playoff series of the postseason against St. Lawrence University, winning 2-1. Dartmouth was the highest seed in the Eastern College Athletic Conference that did not receive a bye, so the men played the last-ranked Saints in the first round. Dartmouth swept the regular season series against the Saints, winning the first game 3-2 and the second 3-1. The Big Green looked poised to make a run in this year’s ECAC tournament, but St. Lawrence proved to be a team that should not be overlooked.
Staci Mannella ’18 is a member of the U.S. Paralympian team that will be competing in Pyeongchang, South Korea beginning on March 9. Mannella suffers from achromatopsia, which causes partial blindness and sensitivity to light. In 2014, Mannella finished sixth in slalom and giant slalom at the Sochi Paralympic Games. Last year, she earned her first podium at the World Championships with a bronze medal finish in the super combined. In addition to skiing, Mannella is a member of the Dartmouth equestrian team.
The Dartmouth women’s ice hockey team concluded its season with a difficult road trip against Clarkson University and St. Lawrence University. Dartmouth has largely struggled with tough competition this year. Despite Clarkson and St. Lawrence both currently ranked in the top 10 in the NCAA, the Big Green hoped to finish its season off strong.
Road wins are difficult to come by in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, a conference where all but four teams sport a .500 or above record at home. This weekend, the men’s hockey team went out in search of two of them.
Women’s hockey has faced a tough schedule in the past two weeks, playing both Eastern College Athletic Conference foes and top talent in the country. The team went on a difficult road trip to play two key Ivy League opponents last weekend in Brown University and Yale University.
Dartmouth men’s hockey has been successful as of late, toppling some of the best teams in the country and playing very strong hockey. Last weekend, the Big Green went on its yearly “North Country” trip, playing games at St. Lawrence University and Clarkson University. This has historically been a very difficult road trip for the Big Green as the men have only won both away games once in the past five years, during the 2013-14 season. This road trip is one of the key points for the Big Green during the Eastern College Athletic Conference schedule and often serves a benchmark showing how the team is progressing. Both opponents on this road trip have historic backgrounds and are regular contenders in the ECAC.
Dartmouth women’s hockey has a long history of success. For example, in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, the Big Green has appeared in seven championship games, winning four. On an individual level, one of the team’s most notable alumna, Gillian Apps ’06 Tu’19, is a three-time Olympic gold medalist who most recently had a pivotal role in Team Canada’s gold medal campaign at the Sochi Olympic Games in 2014.
Hanover has always been a haven for hockey, hosting several great teams including a few NCAA Frozen Four squads. Coming into the 2016-2017 season, expectations were high for Dartmouth’s men’s hockey. In the past few years, the Big Green has struggled, but the team’s goals never change. The Eastern College Athletic Conference is yet again loaded with top ranking teams, both Ivy and non-Ivy League, but the veteran core of the Big Green is determined to make some noise in the conference this year. After going to the ECAC semifinals two years ago, the Big Green is hungry for more.
Dartmouth football entered Friday’s much anticipated Fenway Park showdown with Brown University in need of a clean win. But even with Saturday’s result, a 33-10 victory with solid performances on both sides of the ball, Dartmouth needs help to take home an Ivy League championship.
As the season comes to a close, each matchup becomes a do-or-die for the football team. Saturday’s matchup with Cornell University was no different — a loss would have ended any realistic hopes for a piece of the Ivy League crown. This week, the defense starred, holding together a 10-0 shutout at Memorial Field on Saturday.
With its Ivy League Championship hopes largely in the balance, the Big Green had questions to answer on Saturday against Harvard University. However, the men fell short in key situations and suffered a 14th-straight loss to the Crimson, leaving the Big Green in need of serious help to win a conference championship.
It was an afternoon filled with frustration and untimely mistakes for the Big Green against Columbia University at Memorial Field on Saturday. Despite mounting a strong comeback in the latter half, Dartmouth fell to the Lions, 22-17, in a matchup that came down to clock management and officiating. With its perfect record tarnished, the Big Green no longer controls its destiny in the Ivy League Championship race.
It was a day of nail-biting action at Campus Field in Fairfield, Connecticut as the Big Green took down out-of-league foe Scared Heart University 29-26. The game featured an abundance of twists and turns as Sacred Heart really seemed to control the pace of the game well at times. But in the end Jack Heneghan ’18 connected with Emory Thompson ’18 twice in the second half to complete yet another sizable comeback.
