Robert A. Ceplikas '78, Dartmouth's deputy director of athletics for the past 15 years, was named acting director of Athletics and Recreation, effective July 1. Dean of the College Thomas Crady announced that Ceplikas will serve for the 2009-2010 academic year while a national search is conducted for a successor to Josie Harper, who retired June 30 after seven years as the College's athletics director.

Women's lacrosse players Colleen Olsen '10 of Avon, Conn., and Julie Wadland '10 of Andover, Mass., are among the 24 women recently named to the 2009-10 U.S. Lacrosse Developmental team. A starter for Dartmouth since her freshman year, Olsen is making her U.S. Lacrosse debut. Off the field, Olsen dedicated much of her summer to volunteering with the College's Summer Enrichment at Dartmouth (SEAD) program. A free academic program that brings students from under-resourced high schools to Dartmouth, SEAD was recently featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education. A goalie, Wadland remains on the U.S. Developmental Team for the second-straight year.


Carl Wallin retired this summer after a 40-year career as the field events coach for Big Green track and field. Wallin coached 29 All-Americans, 39 New England champions, 87 Heptagonal top finishers, and 15 Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America (IC4A) and Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) champions in his time at Dartmouth. Big Green athletes set every Dartmouth field event record during his career.


The Dartmouth football team has added Sacred Heart University to the 2010 and 2011 schedule. The Big Green will host the Pioneers in September 2010 and travel to Fairfield, Conn., for the 2011 game. Sacred Heart replaces the University of New Hampshire on the schedule; the final two years of the contracted series with the Wildcats have been suspended until 2014 and 2015.
