Dartmouth College mourns sudden death of student

HANOVER - For the second time in five weeks, students, staff and faculty at Dartmouth College are mourning the sudden death of a member of the college's junior class..

Blaine Steinberg, a Dartmouth junior, died suddenly at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Friday night of an undisclosed illness. A statement from Dartmouth officials said she had fallen ill, was taken to the hospital and died suddenly.

Steinberg was a native of Wynnewood, Penn., and a former member of the Dartmouth women's lacrosse team who was unable to play her freshman year due to injury, said a release from Dartmouth's Sports Information Office.

Dartmouth officials made counselors available to meet with students on Friday night after the death was announced and then again on Saturday.

Early last month, another member of the Dartmouth Class of 2015, Tobin Tucker, died while competing in a cross-country skiing event in Vermont.
