Director of Athletics Josie Harper and former women's lacrosse player Sandy (Bryan) Weatherall '83 were inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in June. The two are among 10 inductees in the Class of 2006.

High School, compiling a 39-3-4 record. She served as the Dartmouth women's coach from 1981-1992, leading the Big Green to a pair of Ivy League championships.

Harper coached with the U.S. national team from 1979-87, serving as an assistant coach for the 1982 U.S. World Cup team and the head coach for the 1986 U.S. World Cup squad. She has been inducted into the US Lacrosse New England and Pennsylvania lacrosse halls of fame.

Weatherall played on three U.S. World Cup teams, logging championships in 1982 and 1989. She was a three-time All-Ivy League selection at Dartmouth and earned first-team All-America honors in 1982 and 1983. She scored 12 points in a game against Plymouth State, a Dartmouth record that still stands.
