Yesterday the Dartmouth women's tennis team not only won a share of the the Big Green's first crown of the year, but the first in program history thanks to a 4-3 win at Harvard. Find the story here.
Dartmouth women's lacrosse, meanwhile, continued the chase for an Ivy League championship with a 15-10 win over Princeton. The Big Green can clinch a share of the crown with a win over Harvard Friday night in Hanover. Find the story here.
*Stopped by the gorgeous Corey Ford Clubhouse yesterday to catch some of the Dartmouth rugby team's 33-5 win over Ohio State. Former wide receiver Tanner Scott gets a mention in this recap. In addition to scoring a try, Scott made a terrific open-field stop of a Buckeye who had sliced through the Dartmouth line and seemed headed for an easy score until the only player who could stop him brought him down.
*Like so many others, Harvard's spring game was something less than an offensive showdown with the first touchdown in a 14-7 contest coming on a returned punt block. Colton Chapple quarterbacked the first team, going 8-for-19 for 126 yards. Tailback Treavor Scales did not play and presumptive starting QB Collier Winters' name does not appear in the recap.
A writeup on Princeton's spring game can be found here. Not much in the way of statistics or details but the video interview reminds us that Princeton could be a completely different team next year with the return from injury of talented quarterback Tommy Wornham and standout linebacker Steven Cody.
Not a surprise this soggy spring but Yale's Blue-White game yesterday was rained out. The Bulldogs will wrap up the spring with a Monday practice instead.
*They may not know this down in the valley yet, but it is an absolutely gorgeous day without a cloud in the sky. A great day for baseball. Let's play two!
