HANOVER — For the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dartmouth Big Green will be back in action this weekend. Six spring programs will see their first competition since the outbreak of the pandemic more than 13 months ago.

On Saturday, Dartmouth men’s and women’s tennis will face Colby-Sawyer on the Thompson Courts in Hanover, with the men beginning at 10 a.m. and the women at noon. Dartmouth softball has a Saturday doubleheader at UMass beginning at 1 p.m.

On Sunday, the Big Green men’s and women’s lacrosse teams host Tufts at Scully-Fahey Field.

The women’s game is at 11 a.m., and the men start at 3 p.m.

Dartmouth’s men’s and women’s track teams will compete Sunday in a meet at the University of New Hampshire along with UMass Lowell, Vermont, Maine and Hartford.

The events at Dartmouth are closed to the public, both inside and outside the fields. Tailgating is also prohibited.

The softball doubleheader will be streamed on ESPN+. The tennis and lacrosse games will also be streamed, with details not yet finalized.

All Dartmouth teams are playing without their full rosters because of campus capacity restrictions.
