Dartmouth tabs Sowell, ex-Shoremen star


Dartmouth named Rick Sowell men's lacrosse coach Tuesday, making him what is believed to be the first African-American lacrosse coach in Division I.

Sowell, a Washington College graduate who was the 1985 Division III Midfielder of the Year, spent the past seven years as an assistant at Georgetown.

He replaces Tim Nelson, who resigned June 29 after compiling a 41-63 record in eight seasons.
