Men's hoops lead winter sports
The mens team enjoyed its best season since 1995, with a 15-9 regular-season record and a berth in the ECAC Upstate New York Tournament. For the first time ever, the Thoroughbreds swept UCAA champion Hamilton College, besting the Continentals in Clinton,86-83 in overtime, and again at Skidmore, 78-64. Skidmore also swept rivals Hobart and Vassar. Team scoring leader Dana Martin 05 was chosen UCAA Player of the Week three times and ECAC Upstate Player of the Week twice.
The womens team finished the season with a 62-57 win at Vassar. The Thoroughbreds were 4-10 in UCAA play and 9-16 overall. Sophomore forward Lauren Jones 06 led the team in scoring, averaging 13 points per game.
Skidmore lost, 6-1, to Babson College in the first round of the ECAC East Tournament. The Tbreds finished the season with an 8-16-1 record. Five of the losses were by just one or two goals, and a memorable win was an exciting 4-3 overtime triumph over Amherst. Skidmore won the Codfish Bowl Tournament by beating Southern Maine and UMass-Boston. Pat Bigelow 05 led the team in scoring, with 9 goals and 15 assists for the season.
Swimming and diving
At the NYSWCAA championships, Kelly Jayne 04 set a Skidmore record in three-meter diving, with a score of 327.65 (good for a 7th-place finish), and Karin Brudvig 07 set a Skidmore record in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of 2:16.92 in prelims (her 2:17.61 time in the final event put her in 7th place). The Tbreds finished 14th in the meet, which Ithaca won handily.
The men broke Skidmore records, too, at the UNYSCA championship meet. Doug Salati 07 established a new mark in the 200-yard breaststroke, with a time of 2:22.76 in prelims, and in the 400-yard individual medley, with a 4:36.99 finish in prelims; and Brian Prue 06 swam the 200 butterfly in a record 2:17.34. Again Ithaca won the meet, with Skidmore placing 13th. WJ
