Field hockey
In November the Skidmore field-hockey team advanced to the NCAA Division III quarterfinals, where it lost a heartbreaker—2-1 in double overtime— at the College of New Jersey. The team had qualified for the tournament in a similarly grueling battle, beating William Smith College by 2-1 in double overtime, to win Skidmore’s second straight UCAA championship. For the season, the Thoroughbreds finished with a 17-4 record that included a twelve-game winning streak.
Colleen Barber ’04 capped a brilliant career by being named UCAA Player of the Year. She was also a first-team All-America selection. Barber led the team in scoring, with 16 goals and a school-record 21 assists for 53 points on the season. She finished her career with a total of 37 goals and a school-record 51 assists for 125 points. With 15 goals and 7 assists for 37 points this season, Hallory Mogren ’04 was named a UCAA All-Star, along with Barber and four other T’breds.

After winning ten of its last twelve regular-season matches, the volleyball team made a return trip to the NCAA Division III tournament. The Thoroughbreds beat Vassar, 3-0, in the NCAA first round and then lost in the second round, 3-0, to NCAA finalist New York University. On the season Skidmore racked up a 22-18 record, including a second-place finish in the UCAA championship tournament.

Becky Herman ’06 and UCAA Rookie of the Year Darryl Manzer ’07 were selected to the AVCA All–New York regional team, and three Thoroughbreds were UCAA All-Stars.

The golf team won its second straight ECAC Division III championship and its ninth straight UCAA title. In the ECAC event, Skidmore shot 619 to finish 15 strokes ahead of second-place University of Rochester. Ross Morgan ’04 won with rounds of 75-76—151. The UCAA championship was clinched by just one stroke, again over University of Rochester.
Morgan, Mike Stiller ’06, and Case Button ’06 were UCAA All-Stars, and Tim Brown was UCAA co-Coach of the Year.
Currently ranked 13th nationally, Skidmore golf opens its spring season in March.

The men’s soccer team beat Union, 2-0, in the final game of the regular season to qualify for a first--time UCAA tournament berth. The Thoroughbreds were shut out, 6-0, by St. Lawrence in the UCAA semifinals and finished the season with a9-8-2 record.

The women’s tennis team posted a 4-3
