HANOVER, N.H. — The Dartmouth football team debuted The Woods Watch Party — their weekly streaming of past games with commentary from those who participated — back on Sept. 19, and now some of the other Big Green’s fall sports are getting in on the action.
For the next nine Wednesday evenings, Big Green fans can tune into the Dartmouth Sports YouTube Channel for “Big Green Classic” to relive an exciting Dartmouth game from a fall sport. These broadcasts will not only include the action from each contest, but also players that participated in those games and the program’s coach from time to time, all Zooming in to provide insight into the plays on the field, the strategies that went into each game and their Dartmouth experience as a whole.
The first event drops on Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. with a replay of the women’s soccer game against Stony Brook from the fall of 2017. Participants from that contest that will join the conversation will be head coach Ron Rainey, former captain Bianca Ribi ’18, Brittany Champagne ’18 and current senior Mariel Gordon (who was a freshman that season) reminiscing about the game.
