From the snow in Colorado to the ice in New Haven, the Big Green are showing their pride and spirit in postseason play. Senior Charles Grant backstopped the men's hockey team to a semifinal berth in the ECAC playoffs with 94 saves in a two-game sweep of Yale. Sophomore Foreste Peterson earned All-America honors with her run in the giant slalom at the NCAA championship.

Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.

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


Foreste Peterson, So., Berkeley, Calif., Alpine Skiing

At the NCAA Skiing Championships, sophomore Foreste Peterson became the first Dartmouth skier to earn All-America First Team honors in the women’s giant slalom since Courtney Calise in 2005 with her fifth-place finish on the first day of competition (March 9) in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. After her first run, she was in sixth place, but only the top five times earn All-America status. So Peterson pushed even harder on her second run as the snow fell more steadily, posting the third-best time to move up a slot in the standings into fifth. She nearly garnered second-team All-America honors two days later in the slalom, placing just one spot shy of the distinction in 11th as the Big Green finished fifth in the team standings by the end of the championship.

Charles Grant, Sr., Berwick, Nova Scotia, G, Men's Hockey

Charles Grant was the backbone of Dartmouth’s quarterfinal sweep of No. 7 second-seeded Yale in New Haven this past weekend. He started with a career-high 48 saves in a Game 1 that was eventually settled in overtime, 4-3, in favor of the Big Green. He followed that up with an even more impressive performance in Game 2, stopping 46 shots in regulation to clinch the series sweep of the Bulldogs. His performance helped Dartmouth move on past the quarterfinals to the semifinals for the first time in five years, taking on No. 2 Quinnipiac Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. in Lake Placid.
