First event in a career at Dartmouth and competing in the final season of a career, this week's athletes are representing the Big Green from both ends of the spectrum. Freshman Cha'Mai Rothwell won three events in her first track meet at Leverone field house. Senior Grant Opperman scored his first goal of the season for the men's hockey team.
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.

Making her home debut at Leverone Field House, Rothwell proved to be the top performer of the meet on Saturday against UNH and Maine. The freshman won three events, taking the top spot in the 60m, 60m hurdles and the long jump. In winning the 60m hurdles, Rothwell also set a Dartmouth school record by crossing the line in the final heat in 8.56. Not only did she win both sprint finals, but was also the top qualifier in their respective preliminary heats as well. Her 19-1.50/5.83m in the long jump was also nearly two-feet better than the second-place jumper.
