As the spring season winds down, two Big Green athletes continue to heat up. Golfer Peter Williamson earns third Ivy title, softball pitcher Kristen Rumley wraps up successful first season. Williamson accomplished something only one other Ivy golfer has; he won the Ivy championship title for the third time, beating his closest competitor by eight strokes. Rumley finished her first season in a Dartmouth uniform ranked second all-time in strikeouts per season with 151. For their efforts they were named the DartmouthSports.com athletes of the week.

Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the DartmouthSports.com Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.

Kristen Rumley, (Katy, Texas) Fr., Pitcher, Softball

Kristen Rumley helped the Big Green conclude its most successful weekend of the season against Harvard. The freshman lefthander, went 1-2 on the week from the circle with her win coming against the North Division leader. She threw 30 strikeouts in 21.0 innings of work and pitched three complete games over the week. She was also Dartmouth's top hitter hitting .500 (5-of-10) with two runs and a team-best four doubles. She concludes the season ranked No. 2 on the Big Green's single-season list with 151 strikeouts and her 12 strikeouts in the Albany game (April 18) was one shy of tying the single-game record.


Peter Williamson (Hanover, N.H.), Sr, Men's Golf

Williamson won his third Individual Ivy Championship this past weekend at the Galloway National Golf Club. He won the tournament at even-par and beat his closest competition by eight strokes. He became just the second golfer in the history of the Ivy League to win the event three times. He also received his third Ivy Player of the Year honor and earned his fourth All-Ivy honor. He became the ninth golfer in the history of the league to make All-Ivy four times.
