Dartmouth’s Torin Tucker Passes Away During Craftsbury Marathon

Dartmouth junior Torin Tucker passed away while racing the Craftsbury Marathon on Saturday in Craftsbury, Vt. According to a statement released by Dartmouth College late Saturday night: “After the college informed Tucker’s family and expressed its deep sympathy and support, President Philip Hanlon shared the tragic news with the college community in a campus-wide email.”

“The thoughts of Dartmouth athletics are with Torin’s family, friends, and the entire Dartmouth community on this sad day,”  Dartmouth Director of Athletics and Recreation Harry Sheehy said in the statement.

“We urge students, faculty, and staff who would like to speak to a counselor or chaplain, on their own behalf or out of concern for someone else to contact Safety and Security at any hour,” President Hanlon said. “Please do not hesitate to seek help during this time of grief.”

According to the statement, Dartmouth’s ski team has returned to campus and will not compete in the remainder of the Vermont Carnival.

Dartmouth spokesman Rick Bender told the Associated Press that Tucker, of Sun Valley, Idaho, died at the scene after attempts to resuscitate him failed. The cause of his death is still under investigation.
