Top seniors honored

     As part of Commencement weekend, five seniors received athletics honors. Four were given senior athlete awards:

  • Golfer Joey Pohle finished fifth in the national Division III championships to earn his third straight All-America honor. He was also a 2002 All-America Scholar. During his career he finished in the top-ten in thirty, and won eleven, of his thirty-six tournaments.

  • Volleyball star Kathy Tschampel was the catalyst for Skidmore’s three UCAA championships and three-year run in nationals. A four-time UCAA All-Star, she is ranked among the national NCAA career leaders in kills, kills per game, and attack attempts.

  • Equestrian Lindsey Phibbs, named team MVP for all four years, was the high-point rider in the region three times. In 1999 she led the T’breds to the IHSA national title and won the 1999 Cacchione Cup.

  • Brian McCawley brought Skidmore its first All-America citation in lacrosse in 2001 and earned it again in 2002. In 2001 he led Skidmore to its best season and its first ECAC playoffs ever. The three-time UCAA All-Star and All-Academic represented the UCAA in the annual Division II-III North vs. South senior all-star game.

     The senior scholar-athlete award went to soccer player Andrew Simon, who led the Thoroughbreds to their best four-year stretch ever. He became the program’s all-time leading scorer as a junior. A business major with a 3.79 GPA, Simon is a three-time UCAA All-Star and All-Academic. He is also a Verizon Academic All-America first team selection (one of just thirty-three out of 12,000 players). —WJ
