College Roundup: Nef Wins Again for Dartmouth Skiing

Sunday, January 28, 2018

Jeffersonville, Vt. — After winning the giant slalom for Dartmouth on Friday, sophomore Tanguy Nef doubled up with a victory in the slalom on Saturday in the St. Michael’s Winter Carnival at Smugglers Notch. But Vermont, which entered the day with a 41-point lead, did just enough to hold off the Big Green for the team title, winning the event, 956-946.

Nef threw down the fastest opening run and finished with a two-run time of 1 minutes, 36.41 seconds, beating UVM’s Max Roeisland by a half-second. Brian McLaughlin took fourth and Kalle Wagner was fifth for the Big Green.

The Dartmouth women also had a big day, going 2-3-4 behind the Catamounts’ Paula Moltzan. Alexa Dlouhy, Foreste Peterson and Meg Currie did the honors, and Stephanie Lebby claimed fifth for Dartmouth.

Next up for the Dartmouth ski team is the Vermont Carnival on Friday and Saturday in Stowe, V.

Yale 57, Dartmouth 39

Hanover — The Big Green (2-2, 10-7) shot less than 30 percent from the floor and fell to the Bulldogs (2-2, 9-8) at Leede Arena.

A night after putting five players in double digits in a win over Brown, Dartmouth managed just one such performance against Yale. Junior Isalys Quinones produced a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds, but the Big Green could do little else at the offensive end of the floor.

Dartmouth stays home to host Cornell and Columbia this weekend.

Yale 74, Dartmouth 64

New Haven, Conn. — Three times Dartmouth closed within a single possession in the second half, and every time Yale answered with a 3-pointer to hold off the Big Green at John J. Lee Amphitheater.

Alex Copeland had a game-high 25 points for the Bulldogs (9-11, 2-2 Ivy), while senior Taylor Johnson produced 15 points and a career-high seven assists for Dartmouth (4-13, 0-4 Ivy), which dropped its seventh straight game.

Women’s Hockey

Yale 6, Dartmouth 0

New Haven, Conn. — The Bulldogs used a four-goal second period to put away the Big Green (5-15-1, 3-12-1) at Ingalls Rink.

Dartmouth played Yale (9-10-4, 7-7-2) evenly over the first period, even getting a breakaway bid from freshman Jennifer Costa, but the hosts denied the attempt. Yale grabbed a 1-0 lead just before the first intermission before dominating the second period.

Christie Honor and Shannon Ropp combined on 22 saves for the Big Green, which matched Yale on the shots-on-goals chart, 28-28. Dartmouth hosts Colgate on Friday.
