With Skidmore's fall teams doing so well, it is not surprising that individual Thoroughbreds are continually being recognized for their accomplishments. Three athletes continued their stellar performances on the field last week and were honored by the Liberty League for their performances and contributions to their teams:
Dani DeGregory '16 - Field Hockey - Honor Roll
Dani DeGregory scored a career and game high eight points for Skidmore during the team's 8-0 victory over RPI on Saturday. She was named to field hockey's weekly honor roll for her efforts. DeGregory scored three goals, one in the first period and two in the second period and added two assists to go with her hat trick. DeGregory leads Skidmore in assists with nine and is second in goals scored and points registered, with seven and 23 respectively.
Oliver Loutsenko '14 - Men's Tennis - Performer of the Week
Oliver Loutsenko swept the ITA Northeast Regional Championships this past weekend and has advanced to the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships. Loutsenko won the singles title 6-0, 6-4 over his opponent from New York University and then teamed with Danny Knight '14 to capture the doubles title 6-7, 7-5, 7-6. The USTA/ITA Nationals will take place Oct. 10-13 in Fort Meyers, Fla.
MacKenzie Denver '16 - Golf - Performer of the Week
Mackenzie Denver's second place individual performance led the Thoroughbred golf team to a fourth place finish at the Williams College Invitational. Denver shot a six-over-par 75-73-148, which helped the Thoroughbreds best 20 other teams in the 24 team field. Denver and the golf team now head to the Liberty League qualifier Sept. 28-29 at St. Lawrence University.
