Golf For the first time ever, two Pioneer golfers were named All-Northwest Conference: Mari Kotake ’05, from Honolulu, and Tessa Diebel ’06, from Stillwater, Minnesota. The women’s golf team had the highest conference finish of any of Lewis & Clark’s athletics teams, placing second for the third straight year.
Track Liz Paterson ’07, from Arcata, California, is the Northwest Conference Champion in the discus—and it’s not even her best event! Paterson had an NCAA III provisional qualifying mark in the hammer throw, but narrowly missed going to the national championship. Kate Ross ’06, from Skowhegan, Maine, set a new school record in the 400-meter hurdles. She also was All-Conference in both the 400-meter hurdles and the long jump.
Judy Swan ’05, a native Portlander and a sprinter on the track team, was named the College’s Lois Smithwick Athleteof the Year. At one point in the season, she held the top time in three different events (100, 200, and 400 meters) in the North- west Conference, and she ended up All-Conferencein two events (200 and 400 meters) at the Northwest Championships.
Rowing Becca Carlton ’05, from Sacramento, received the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Pocock All- American award in May. She was one of nine NCAA Division III rowers to earn this honor. Carlton was a member of the Pioneer women’s varsity eight crew that was at one point in the season ranked No. 10 in Division III rowing, the highest ranking ever for a Lewis & Clark crew team.
