Top senior athletes honored

     This spring, Skidmore senior athlete awards went to tennis star Amy Wachenheim, lacrosse standout Jonas Jeswald, golfer Phil Gehring, and volleyball setter Courtney Lee. Lee also won the senior scholar-athlete award.

Jonas Jeswald ’01 ends his Skidmore career as the college’s all-time leading scorer in men’s lacrosse.

     Wachenheim is a four-time all-American, with an 81-23 singles record in three seasons at Skidmore (she transferred from Colgate in 1998). Wachenheim played on three league championship teams and in four national championship events.

     This spring Jeswald led the lacrosse team to its first-ever postseason tournament. He also broke his own single-season goal record, with 53, and became the program’s all-time leading scorer, with 183 goals and 21 assists for 204 points in his career.

     Gehring is a two-time all-American and four-time all-district golfer. He played for four UCAA and three ECAC championship teams. He also competed in four national championships, helping the Thoroughbreds finish 3rd in 2000.

     Lee, an anthropology major with a 3.8 GPA, was Skidmore’s first volleyball player to earn Verizon Academic All-America honors. Her perfect 4.0 GPA during the 2000 volleyball season earned her a spot on the AVCA New York first team. A two-time UCAA Player of the Year and four-time all-star, Lee played in two national championships. She finished her career as the national Division III all-time leader in service aces, with 486. —WJ
