HANOVER, N.H. – Head coach Bob Dallis has announced the Dartmouth women's tennis 2017-18 schedule. The Big Green will play in nine tournaments and 17 dual matches.
As it has done for the past four years, Dartmouth will open the year at the Tribe Invitational (Sept. 15-17) before competing in the ITA Oracle Masters (Sept. 21-24) and the ITA All-America Championship (Sept. 30-Oct. 8). The Big Green will get a bit of Ivy League practice at Yale's Bulldog Invitational (Oct. 6-8), the ITA Northeast Regionals at Penn (Oct. 18-23) and the Brown Invite (Oct. 20-21). Dartmouth will close the fall by hosting Yale, UMass and Minnesota at the Big Green Invitational (Nov. 3-5).
Home matches against Boston University (Jan. 17) and, for the first time, Liberty (Jan. 20) will kick off the spring for the Big Green. The Georgia Tech ITA National Indoor Kick-Off Weekend (Jan. 27-28) will be next on the schedule before the team returns home to host Boston College (Feb. 2) and William & Mary (Feb. 4). Dartmouth's final invite of the year, the ECAC Tournament, will take place at Princeton (Feb. 9-11). The Big Green will wrap up the month by facing Duke for the first time (Feb. 25).
UMass will be in town to open the month (March 3) before Dartmouth heads to California to face San Diego State and Fresno State (March 16-17), Pepperdine (March 20) and Long Beach State (March 23). A few days after returning from the West Coast, the Big Green will open conference play by hosting Harvard (March 31).
From there, the rest of the season will go very quickly. Dartmouth will host Yale (April 6), travel to Brown (April 8) and play at home one last time against Cornell and Columbia (April 14-15). The Big Green will close the regular season the following weekend at Penn and Princeton (April 21-22).
