The Dartmouth Big Green (Rolfe Division) emerged in a three-game series against host Columbia (Gehrig Division) and will travel to the NCAA as the Ivy League representative. However, unlike a year ago when Bob Whalen’s club won its first championship in 22 years, the boys from Hanover won without any household names. It was a classic case that the sum of the Dartmouth team was stronger than its individual parts. If Dartmouth needed offense, timely hitting and intelligent base running emerged to manufacture runs. If they needed to keep the score low, the pitching staff responded. The combination of opportunistic offense and stout defense was effective, as the Big Green finished the regular season 26-17.
