With the fall seasons in full swing, the Thoroughbeds are turning in strong team and individual efforts. Earlier this week, the Liberty League honored four Skidmore athletes for their performances:
Krista Lamoreaux '17 - Field Hockey - Rookie of the Week
In three games played, Lamoreaux tallied five points on two goals and one assist. The assist came on a game-tying goal against SUNY Oneonta, and her first career goal came later in the same game.
Kelly Blackhurst '14 - Field Hockey - Offensive Player of the Week
For the second straight week, the Liberty League tabbed Blackhurst as the Offensive Player of the Week. Over the course of three games Blackhurst scored four goals on her way to becoming Skidmore's all-time leading scorer with 206 career points (82 G, 42 A).
Rachel Plevinsky '14 - Tennis - Performer of the Week
Plevinsky turned in a stellar performance during the Lindsay Morehouse Invitational at Williams College, where she faced formidable opponents from Williams and Middlebury College. Plevinsky, who did not drop a single set against her opponents, went 3-0 in singles play.
Derrick Yam '17 - Men's Soccer - Rookie of the Week
Yam, a goalie, did not allow any goals in his first career start against SUNY Potsdam. He also stopped three shots during the 1-0 Skidmore win.
