Vis-a-vis: Athletes arise

September 11, 2017

The Skidmore men’s and women’s soccer teams have put their August workouts to good use, opening the fall season with victories. The women are fielding plenty of veterans along with nine freshmen; the men graduated an All-American defender and an all-league goalie, but new and seasoned players are stepping up. Field hockey, tennis and volleyball are also off to strong starts. (Photos by Erin Covey)
