Scholarship winner. Sarah Russell-Smith ’08 has won an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, one of just three given to women’s soccer players in Division III. As team captain, she led a T’bred defense that had 12 shutouts in 19 games this season. Her academics are impressive too: she’s a physics major with a 3.93 GPA.

Hockey. The skaters overcame injuries to finish 7-17-2 overall and 4-14-1 in the ECAC East. They beat Hamilton, Wesleyan, and Tufts, and six defeats were by just one or two points, including a 2-1 loss to NESCAC champion Trinity. With 12 goals and 9 assists, Alex Mykolenko ’11 was named to the ECAC East All-Rookie Team.

Swimming and diving. The women set nine program re-cords at the NYSWCAA championships. Among the individual records were three by Sonia Segal-Smith ’10 in the 1650-yard freestyle, the 200 IM, and the 100 breaststroke; two by Kristen Zebrowski ’09 in the 500 free and 200 free; and one by Kelsey Carson ’11 in the 400 IM. The team finished 11th in the 17-team event. The men finished 13th in the 15-team UNYSCA championships. J. T. Norton ’10 set T’bred breaststroke records in the 200 and 100 and was on three record-breaking free-style relay teams.

Basketball. The women posted their best season since 1998–99, with a 13-12 overall and 6-8 Liberty League record, including wins over Vassar, Clarkson, Union, and RPI. The men, including Jake Schechtman ’09 (left), finished 6-19 overall and 1-13 in the Liberty League. Jon Douglas ’10 was nationally ranked for his free-throw
percentage of 88.1.

Riding. Winning seven of eight shows so far, the equestrians will vie for a sixth national title May 8–11 in Los Angeles.
