Before the Ivy League decided to allow graduate students to compete, many athletes in the Class of 2020 transferred from Dartmouth to schools around the country.
Alderson studied history, played baseball and was in ROTC at Dartmouth before he began his career in front offices across Major League Baseball.
Tuckerman said he was motivated in part by the cutting and reinstatement of the varsity lightweight rowing team.
While many athletes expressed support for the decision, some say they have lost faith in the athletics department.
On Thursday evening, the Dartmouth Political Union hosted a panel of professional athletes to discuss the intersection of politics and professional sports, touching on topics including Black Lives Matter protests and kneeling for the national anthem.
On Thursday, the Ivy League announced the cancellation of all winter athletic competition. For the sports affected — basketball, ice hockey, indoor track and field, skiing and squash — there is currently no timeline for resuming competition prior to the 2022 season. Athletes and coaches said that while the decision was not a surprise, it was still difficult to receive the news.
For the third time in Dartmouth’s history and the first time since 2003, Dartmouth will host the NCAA men’s and women’s skiing championships in 2025.
