Coming off of a pair of crucial Ivy League wins, including a dramatic third set tiebreaker, the men’s tennis team heads into the weekend with an opportunity to lock up its best Ivy finish in over a decade.
During the indoor Dartmouth Relays, nestled between collegiate races, is a very special race: the Grafton County One-Lapper. The race, in which children take to the track, is one of the most uplifting things I’ve witnessed.
The Concato name doesn’t hang in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The family holds no Division I record and is represented by no athletes in the major leagues. In fact, when brothers Louis Concato ’14 and Mike Concato ’17 were born to two New York University-educated physicians, it seemed more likely that they would grow up to perform open heart surgery than open an inning on the mound.
For many, the Boston Marathon represents the pinnacle of personal and athletic achievement. The race starts in Hopkinton, Mass., the course winding through Wellesley, up Heartbreak Hill and across the Boston finish line. On Monday, at least seven Dartmouth students -— Isabel Caldwell ’14, Erik Fagerstrom ’14, Oscar Friedman ’16, Annie Hart ’14, Catherine Meyer ’14, C.J. Pierce ’14 and David Sinclair ’14 — will be among the thousands of runners who will participate in this year’s edition, one year after the tragic bombings that led to three deaths and hundreds of injuries in 2013.

The men’s and women’s golf teams finished third and sixth in their respective tournaments last weekend. The men’s golf team rode a strong performance by Jeffrey Lang ’17 — 13 birdies and -7 weekend — to a third place finish at the Princeton Invitational, while the Big Green women finished sixth out of 12 teams at the Brown Invitational. Both teams have just two tournaments left in the season, one this weekend and the Ivy League Championship at the end of the month.
The track and field teams competed in two meets this weekend, with some athletes attending the George Mason Spring Invitational and the majority of the teams heading to Durham for the Wildcat Invitational at the University of New Hampshire.
