Kudos. Skidmore honored departing seniors Anne Ledyard (field hockey, lacrosse), Madeleine Pauli (tennis), Tom Spinella (lacrosse All-American), and Mike Stiller (golf All-American) with senior-athlete awards. Scholar-athlete honors went to women’s studies major Sarah Berheide (field hockey
and lacrosse All-American) and neuroscience major Ibardo Zambrano (tennis).
Ups and downs.
Golf. At its twentieth straight Division III nationals, Skidmore tied for 10th, with a four-round score of 1240. (Nebraska Wesleyan won with 1193.) It was Skidmore’s best placing since earning a 10th in 2001.
Riding. At IHSA hunt-seat nationals, Skidmore tied with Virginia Intermont for 5th out of 19 teams. Mount Holyoke took 1st with 23 points; Skidmore had 14, 7 of which were won by Hawthorne Hart ’08 at intermediate equitation on the flat.
Tennis. The men’s team captured its fifth Liberty League championship, with a 4-1 win over Vassar. Greg Sher ’06 and Jared Karlebach ’08 took the lead at first doubles, then Sher clinched the match in number-one singles. Sher was the league’s Player of the Year and Paul Arciero its Coach of the Year.
Lacrosse. The women finished strong, at 12-4 overall and 6-2 in the Liberty League. Three players earned all-league first-team honors (including goalie Sarah Berheide ’06, at left).
Baseball. The T’breds went under 500 for the season (16-22 overall, 7-15 in Liberty play), but shortstop Adam Brown ’08 was named a league all-star.
Softball. The team was winless, 0-8, in the league and 11-27 overall.
