Posted: 11/20/2008

Skidmore athletic teams recently concluded another success fall season. The women's soccer and field hockey teams both earned National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III tournament bids. The field hockey team won the Liberty League championship, while the women's soccer team lost in penalty kicks in the Liberty League final. The golf team also won the Liberty League championship and will be ranked third nationally when the spring season opens in March. The volleyball team posted another 20-win season and finished second in the Liberty League tournament.

The men's and women's tennis teams both had strong fall seasons and will both be contenders for NCAA tournament bids next spring. The men's soccer team hit the 10-win mark and just missed the Liberty League tournament. The men's and women's crews used the fall head races to prepare for the spring, with the women's varsity eight looking to be nationally ranked. The riding team began its quest for a return trip to the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association National Show with a pair of wins.
