The Ivy League Heptagonal Indoor Championships brings together all eight Ivy League schools to compete for the conference title every year. The host location rotates between Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth and Harvard University. This year, it is Dartmouth’s chance to host the meet at Leverone Field House.

As the men’s squash regular season comes to a close, the Big Green has placed itself in a position as one of the top eight teams in the College Squash Association eligible to compete for the Potter Cup at the 2018 Men’s National Team Championship in Hartford, Connecticut.

With its strongest carnival season in years, Dartmouth’s ski teams are headed to the NCAA Championships.
Last season, the Big Green ski team turned a corner. After a nearly four-year carnival drought, Dartmouth snagged a win at the Colby Carnival in late January 2016. The team won again the next weekend at the University of Vermont but was held winless for the remainder of the season. Still, hopes remained high, and the team managed to place fifth at the 2016 NCAA Championships, its best performance since 2013.
On March 10, 2016, the Ivy League announced its decision to implement a four-team postseason tournament for men’s and women’s basketball. The Ancient Eight is the last of the 32 Division I leagues to switch to a postseason tournament to determine its guaranteed NCAA championship bid.
