Coaching roster changes.
Ice-hockey coach Paul Dion, a twenty-four-year veteran, resigned last fall. Replacing him is Neil Sinclair,
an All-American at Middlebury in the early 1990s and head coach of the Williams College women’s hockey team for two years. Men’s lacrosse coach Terry Corcoran also left Skidmore, for Elizabethtown College.
His successor is Jack Sandler, who was assistant men’s lacrosse coach at
Dickinson and Bates colleges. Kelly Schwarz, the new softball coach and intramurals coordinator, is also from Smith, where she was assistant coach since 2003. With the arrival of Gail Cummings-Danson as athletics director, Jeff Segrave has returned to coaching women’s tennis. And thanks to an NCAA grant to promote gender and ethnic diversity at Division III colleges, Megan Buchanan is Skidmore’s new assistant athletics director; she held similar posts at SUNY-Albany.
Autumn joy. Field hockey. At 15-6 (6-1 in Liberty League play), Skidmore earned a return trip to the NCAA Division III championships, where it shut out New England College in the first round, then lost to Rowan in the semifinals. Eight T’breds (including Katie Weber ’07, at left) made the league All-Academic team.
Golf. Skidmore won four of its six fall tournaments, taking its tenth Liberty League title in eleven years.
Soccer. The men went 9-6-2, and the women 13-5-1. Both teams made it to the Liberty League tournament, where both lost to Union in the semifinals. Morgan Cadwell ’06 ended her career by breaking Skidmore’s scoring record, with 54 goals and 22 assists.
