Dartmouth - Collegiate Rugby Championship

Dartmouth

By on

Dartmouth is a private, Ivy League university in Hanover, New Hampshire. The institution comprises a liberal arts college, Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer School of Engineering, 19 graduate programs in the arts and sciences, and the Tuck School of Business, recently ranked the #1 full-time MBA program by the Economist as well as The Wall Street Journal.

Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is one of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution. With an undergraduate enrollment of roughly 4100 and a total student enrollment of 5,900, Dartmouth is the smallest school in the Ivy League. Dartmouth is consistently ranked #1 in the country for undergraduate teaching, and Dartmouth alumni consistently have the highest median salary 10 years out from graduation.

Rugby was originally played at Dartmouth in 1877, with the Big Green’s first intercollegiate match taking place in 1880 as the Dartmouth Rugby Football Association played Amherst College. The sport returned to campus in 1951 and has since been a staple as one of the most successful sports on campus and in the Ivy League.

Dartmouth has the most rugby wins and championships among the Ancient Eight of the Ivy League, including winning 12 of the last 15 Ivy League Championships (15s), as well as the 2012 Ivy League 7s Championship.

As the first American university side to tour the United Kingdom and Ireland, Dartmouth has an extensive legacy of international exposure. Recent tours have found the Big Green in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Cardiff, Dublin, and Rome competing against and training alongside some of the world’s most illustrious rugby clubs. Touring is just one of the many reasons why Dartmouth excels at developing numerous All-Ivy players, Collegiate All-Americans, and US Eagles.

More importantly, Dartmouth Rugby has a team culture that creates friends for life, a fact reflected in the team’s incredibly supportive and loyal alumni base.

The 2014 roster includes three returning players from the 2012 Championship team, seniors Kevin Clark and James Sharpe and captain Madison Hughes ’15. Clark, Sharpe and Hughes along with Zach Folwer ’15, John Abraham ’16, Dawit Workie ’17, Neil Greene ’14, Wilson Chockley ’15 and Jack Braun ’16 were part of the team that finished third in the USA Rugby 7s championship in November. First timers Colin Skelly , Clay Robbins , Robbie Anthony , all seniors round out the squad.
