Green Grabs an Ivy Title

A year ago it took Dartmouth to the midnight hour to earn its only Ivy League championship when the baseball team knocked off Columbia in the conference playoffs.

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!
