A quick rundown of Skidmore sports: there are 19 official teams (riding, tennis, swimming & diving, etc.) and, for those who’d prefer dialing down the athletic intensity, there are all kinds of club and intramural teams. We’re Division 3, we play in the Liberty League, and our mascot is a very friendly Thoroughbred horse. Sports are fun. Yesterday I saw a poster for Skidmore Quidditch, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a full Quidditch team going by the end of this semester, Quaffles and Beaters and all.
I took this video from last Tuesday’s men’s soccer game against Cazenovia. We lost 1-0 but it’s only the beginning of the season. Here are some things I like to yell at soccer games:
“WOOOOOOO!” “YEAH SKIDMORE!” “GO SKIIIIIIIIIID!”
I may be a bit athletically challenged (it’s been a long time since high school lacrosse, and a really long time since that one champion season of second-grade softball) but you won’t find anyone louder in the cheering section. Listen close in the video, you might hear a vuvuzela or two.
