Senior standouts win kudos

Skidmore bestowed this year's Senior Athlete Awards on field hockey All-American Colleen Barber '04 and golf All-American Ross Morgan '04; Barber also won the Senior Scholar-Athlete Award.

A first-team All-American in three of her four years, Barber is a midfielder who consistently specialized in assists: last fall she was the Division III national leader, with 21 assists on the season. She is a four-time UCAA All-Star; in 2003 she was the UCAA and ECAC Player of the Year. During Barber's career the field hockey team compiled a 63-14 record. In 2003, for the second straight time, the Thoroughbreds took the UCAA title and advanced as far as the Division III national championship quarterfinals. A summa cum laude graduate in psychology, Barber is a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-America and a three-time UCAA All-Academic honoree.

This year Morgan led the Skidmore golfers to their eighteenth consecutive berth at Division III nationals. The two-time GCAA All-America Scholar and four-time UCAA All-Star added honorable-mention All-America honors this year. Morgan finished among the top ten in seventeen tournaments during his collegiate career; he took first place in the 2003 ECAC Division III tournament. With Morgan's help, the Skidmore golf team this year claimed its ninth straight UCAA title and third straight ECAC championship. —WJ
