Catching up with men's fall sports

Posted by Katie Peverada

Whether you're a freshman who still has no idea where Wachenheim Field is or a senior who has spent the past week in the library, you're all probably wondering how the fall sports teams are doing. While the men's tennis team has yet to play a match, golf and men's soccer have both started off their seasons with solid performances:

Men's Tennis: The men's tennis team has yet to play a match, but rest assured that when they do, they will have experience. The team, which did not lose a single player to graduation, ended last season ranked 25th nationally and fifth regionally in the ITA Division III ranking. Their first test will come at the Middlebury College Invitational this weekend.
 Next home match: Saturday Oct. 5 at 1 p.m.

Golf: In their only tournament and home match of the young season, the Skidmore golf team came out on top at the 10-team Tim Brown Invitational. Makenzie Denver '16 led the charge with a third place finish, beating fellow Thoroughbred Tim Manwaring '16 by one stroke. Also in the top 10 for Skidmore were Mitchell Campbell '17 and Zach Grossman '15, who tied for ninth.

Men's Soccer: After falling to an 0-2 start, the men's soccer team won the first two games of a five-game home stand to even out their record. Brock Bakewell '15 leads the team in goals with three, while three other players each have one goal and one assist. In goal, Eli Kisselbach '16 has played every minute for Skidmore, posting a 1.50 GAA and a .647 save percentage.
Next home game: Friday Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m.
