Kudos for ’03 standouts

Skidmore honored its top senior athletes as part of this spring’s Commencement activities.
     Volleyball player Katie Campbell won the senior scholar-athlete award. An American studies major, she is a three-time all-UCAA academic honoree. In 2003 Campbell was UCAA Player of the Year and an AVCA all-region selection. She holds Skidmore’s career record for digs.
     Four Thoroughbreds received senior athlete awards:
     Field-hockey star Taryn Howard, a two-time All-American and Skidmore’s all-time leading scorer, led the T’breds to three NCAA national tournaments, including a semifinal appearance in 2001. Skidmore’s first two-sport All-American, she dominated in lacrosse as well. In addition to her accolades on the field, she earned all-UCAA academic honors in both sports.
     Golfer Ben Bates captained the golf team last season, leading the T’breds to a seventeenth straight NCAA national tournament. He earned 2003 honorable-mention All-America honors and is a two-time all-district selection. Bates won four intercollegiate tournaments and played for four UCAA and three ECAC championship teams.
     Two-time captain Dawn Penniston was the number-one singles player for women’s tennis the past two seasons, earning all-state and all-UCAA honors. She competed on two NCAA tournament teams and earned all-UCAA academic honors in 2003.
     Lacrosse player Chris Bivona, the 2003 UCAA Co-Player of the Year, is Skidmore’s all-time leading scorer, a three-time UCAA All-Star, and a participant in the North/South senior all-star game. He won 2003 all-UCAA academic honors as well. –BJ
