Hanover, NH — Dartmouth will travel to Ithaca in early February to take on Ivy rival Cornell, a crucial match if the Big Green hope to move into the top 6. As part of their preparation, the team will travel to Mexico in January with the women’s team for a training trip.

All but one player from last season’s top ten is returning, and three new players should make an impact on the roster. One thing the players will be working hard on this year is their fitness. Two-time All-American Chris Hanson competed in several triathlons over the summer, while Robbie Maycock represented Bermuda in the Men’s Team World Championships in Germany.

“It’s a great group of guys who are close together and good friends on and off the court,” says head coach Hansi Wiens of the team.
