The women’s golf team came in third in the Dartmouth Invitational, the team’s only home tournament this season. Jane Lee ’15 and Isabelle Kane ’18, who respectively tied for seventh and 12th, led the way to the bronze.
This week, I sat down with Kendall Kraus ’15, the co-captain of the women’s soccer team, before the team’s Sunday’s win against St. John’s University. So far this season, the Big Green is 1-2-1, with losses to No. 14 University of Portland and to the University of Washington. A 0-0 tie against Albany University last week and a 2-0 win over St. John’s University on Sunday extended the team’s unbeaten streak at Burnham Field to an impressive 14 games over the last three seasons. So far this season, Kraus has not registered a point, but has three shots on net.
As students returned to campus on a crisp 55-degree sunny, fall Sunday, the women’s soccer team tallied its first victory of the season, defeating St. John’s University 2-0 in a full-game effort.
As the new school year comes to Hanover, we at The Dartmouth wanted to acclimate you to what should be an exciting slate of sports action this fall. In this season primer, we’ll introduce you to some fall teams and offer our thoughts on what the season has in store.
The volleyball team had a successful weekend at the Jack Kaiser Tournament in Queens, New York, where it placed third out of five teams after two hard-fought wins on Saturday afternoon to earn a 3-1 tournament record. The Big Green (6-1, 0-0 Ivy) won three matches in five sets, going the distance to defeat St. John’s University, St. Francis College in Brooklyn and the University of New Hampshire. The Big Green’s lone setback of the tournament — and the season so far — came in three sets at the hands of Fresno State University.
The men’s and women’s cross country teams entered this season without some familiar faces — stars Abbey D’Agostino ’14 and Will Geoghegan ’14 graduated in June, and women’s head coach Mark Coogan left the team for New Balance. But on Saturday, the teams did not skip a beat, cruising to victories in the Dartmouth Invitational. The women finished one-two-three-four-six for a near perfect point total of 16. Brown University came in second with 51 points. The men finished with 21 points, well ahead of Brown’s 46. The wins were the first for both teams at the Dartmouth Invitational since 2011.
As temperatures cooled and summer drew to a close, Dartmouth’s fall athletes flocked back to Hanover to kick preseason into gear.
