HANOVER — Dartmouth College head men’s heavyweight rowing coach Wyatt Allen added to his pile off postseason honors when he was named Intercollegiate Rowing Association coach of the year on Wednesday.

The award, which is peer-voted, is Allen’s second coach of the year honor. He was given the same distinction last week by the Intercollegiate Rowing Coaches Association.

The recognition comes from guiding the Big Green to its first medals in varsity eight at May’s IRA Championship in 17 years. All four Dartmouth boats landed in grand finals, with two earning silver and a third taking bronze.

Four to represent Dartmouth at Olympics

HANOVER — Dartmouth athletics will be represented by four Olympians this summer at the Tokyo Games.

Isalys Quinones, a 2019 alumna will play basketball for Puerto Rico, having qualified for the team prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent postponement of the Olympics last year. Molly Reckford, from the Class of 2015, will compete for the U.S. in rowing. Madison Hughes, who also graduated in 2015, will captain the U.S. men’s rugby sevens team for the second straight Olympics.

The women’s rugby sevens will include rising Dartmouth senior Ariana Ramsey will play rugby sevens for the U.S. The Tokyo Olympics begin on July 23.

Nighthawks’ Viera is NECBL’s player of the week

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — Upper Valley Nighthawks infielder Max Viera (Northeastern) was named New England Collegiate Baseball League player of the week for week five on Monday.

During the week, which ended Sunday, Viera batted 9-for-13 over three games. He had a double, a triple and a solo home run.

On the season, Viera is fourth in the NECBL in batting with a .339 average. He’s also tied for sixth in stolen bases with 11. Viera was named a freshman all-American by Collegiate Baseball following a college season in which the Greenwood Lake, N.Y., native batted .348 for the Huskies, which was sixth-best in the Colonial Athletic Association. He’s the second Nighthawk to earn weekly notice, following pitcher Zane Kmietek (Marist) in week one.
