Sportswrap Thoroughbred highlights



Baker’s dozen honored. Thirteen Thoroughbreds went All-Academic this winter: basketball players Ian Connole ’06, Reed Juckett ’06, Alyssa Bennett ’06, Katie Bronson ’06, Lauren Jones ’06, and Nicky DiMarzio ’07; divers Lisa Kranz ’06, Lauren Bloomenthal ’07, Alex Egan ’08, and Hillary Ekwall ’08; and swimmers Allison Gillum ’06, Allison Stafford ’06, and Tessa Fixter-Coniglio ’08.

Winter of our discontent.
Ice hockey. The team finished 6-18-1 and lost to New England College in the ECAC East quarterfinals. Mike Gibbons ’09 led the offense, with 17 goals on the season—the best individual total since the program stepped up to the ECAC East in 1999.

Basketball. Krystal Coke ’07 led the women, averaging 11.6 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. The T’breds went 10-15 overall. The men (including Reed Juckett ’06, at left) struggled to a 4-20 finish. Greg Gallagher ’06 led in scoring, at 14.7 points per game.

Swimming and diving.
In the NYSWCAA championships, the women’s team came in 12th but broke several Skidmore records. Kristen Zebrowski ’09 set new freestyle times: 18:38.36 in the 1650 and 5:21.65 in the 500. Karin Brudvig ’07 bested her own record in the 200 back, at 2:16.29. Megan Beaulieu-Jones ’09 set a new 400-IM mark of 4:59.02. The 800-free relay team of Zebrowski, Brudvig, Jen Piepenbrink ’09, and Jackie Emr ’09 finished in 8:10.46.

Correction. Men’s lacrosse coach Jack Sandler comes to Skidmore after serving as assistant coach at Dickinson (not Smith) College. He also assisted at Bates College, where he was a standout varsity lacrosse player.
