At the NCAA Skiing Championships in Colorado, the Big Green vaulted into third place, earning the highest finish among Eastern schools.
Karl Johnson '06 won the men's slalom, giving Dartmouth an unprecedented five straight titles in the event.
Heading into the final day of competition, Dartmouth's ski team was in fifth place, but used strong performances by the cross country athletes for its best finish since 1982.
"The best part is that we had an All-America in every discipline. Every one of our athletes contributed," says Cami Thompson, director of skiing and women's cross country coach.
After finishing in a three-way tie for first in the Ivy League, the women's basketball team downed Brown, 73-62, and Princeton, 63-48, to claim the League's NCAA berth.
The Big Green earned a 14-seed and battled third-seeded Rutgers to the wire before ultimately falling, 63-58. Angie Soriaga '06 led Dartmouth with 23 points, including a three-pointer from mid court at the end of the first half.
The men's hockey team fell just shy in its bid for an NCAA berth.
