Athletics - Director's Cup
Here at Skidmore, we just happen to have one of the most competitive Division III athletic programs in the Northeast. Last season, Skidmore finished first among Liberty League schools in the 2011-12 Learfield Sports Director's Cup. Skidmore finished the year at #36 on the Division III list, 16 spots ahead of Liberty League rival Hobart/William Smith and second only to Cortland State in the New York region. Skidmore's high ranking was the result of what amounted to the best athletic season in the College's history: last year 15 teams participated in post-season play while seven teams were crowned Liberty League Champions. What is perhaps more impressive than the Thoroughbreds dominance on the playing field is their excellence in the classroom: 98 Thoroughbred athletes earned a GPA of 3.67 or higher during the spring semester, and 20 athletes earned a 4.0.
