From the links of Princeton, N.J. to the softball diamond tucked away in the corner of campus, this week's athletes continue to excel for Dartmouth. Freshman Maddie Damore hit three home runs in a 10-1 win over Yale. Classmate Jeffrey Lang finished each of the three rounds at the Princeton Invitational under par to tie for second.

Jeff Lang finished each of the three rounds at the Princeton Invitational under par to tie for second at seven-under for the tournament, just one stroke off the lead. In the first round, the freshman from Lexington, Mass., carded six birdies while finishing with a 69 (-2), but his final round was his best with four birdies and par on the other 14 holes. His performance led the Big Green to third place as a team in the field of 15 schools at two-over par, behind only Harvard (-20) and Yale (-17).
