The 14th-ranked Skidmore golf team opened its season March 15-17 at the Jekyll Island Collegiate Invitational, taking 11th place in the 30-team field.

The baseball team recently completed its spring-break schedule, going 3-5 in the process. The Thoroughbreds had a rocky start, losing their first three games to the U. S.

Each pitched deep into their respective games and kept the Thoroughbreds within contention with Petrella and Martins each earning a win.
