Ivy Champs

Dartmouth won the Ivy League Title in Men’s Lacrosse for just the third time in school history tonight, as they beat Harvard 5-4 in front of 2100 fans at Scully-Fahey Field. It is the first Men’s Lax title for Dartmouth, who finished the regular season at 11-2 (5-1) since 1965. Should Princeton win tomorrow afternoon, there will be a three-way tie for the title with Cornell, and a drawing will decide the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. If Princeton should be upset by Brown, then Cornell will get the automatic bid over Dartmouth by virtue of its win over the Green earlier this season.

Dartmouth, winless in conference play in 2002, becomes the only school in Ivy League history to go from worst to first in a single year.

The NCAA field will be announced on Sunday, and Dartmouth stands at least an outside chance of getting an at-large berth should they fail to get the automatic bid.
