Okay? Alright? (Big Blue Moon) We were fresh-faced and eager, although some held more tightly to their p arents than others. We were freshmen, and less than twenty-four hours after arriving on campus were ushered into Page Commons Room to be greeted by a group of upperclassmen thunderously chant­ ing "GORP" and "summer sausage ." They were our COOT leaders - a determined bunch who were to lead us paddling, biking, hiking, conserving, acting, shopping, and fishing across the state of Maine. COOT could be considered our formative days at C olby, for over the course of each uniquely a dventurous trip first friends and acquaintances were found and first memories were formed . Unshowered and weary, we found a new appreciation for Colby. Our four days on COOT ended with a lobster dinner served on Roberts lawn.

Colby

Pride

If

Bowdoin has the polar bear and the University of Maine has the

black bear, why does our very own Colby have the white mule? Colby's infamous mascot didn't come about until 1924,when one outgoing and innovative young man by the name of Joseph Coburn Smith, published an editorial in the school newspaper. In that edito­ rial, Smith, editor of the Echo and nephew of Louise Coburn, sug­ gested that the Colby football team be symbolized by a "white mule". They were to no longer appear as the "dark horse" of college athletics, since they so often upset predictions made by local sports writers. After reading Smith's article, a group of students located a white mule on a Kennebec farm and borrowed the animal for the Bates game on Armistice Day in 1923. Dressed in blue and grey, the mule was placed at the head of the band and student body as they marched onto the field. Colby defeated Bates 9 to 6 that day with the help of its new found mascot. The win was enough to make Joe Smith's suggestion perma­ nent. Today we are still the white mules and now you know why. -Taken from: The History of Colby College by Ernest Cummings Marriner, 1963

Colbv's Extracurricular Side

At

the

activities

fair

held

at

Dana

at

the

start of each semester, tables are manned by representatives from Colby's more than ninety CIUbS

and organizations. W hile it has not yet been proven whether the bowls of lollipops, the roaring of chainsaws, or the genuine interest in

outreach

is

responsible for the recruiting of new members, stu­ dents sign up in droves for Colby clubs. They are eager to become part of the many cultural, athletic,

POiiticai,

musical,

religious, editorial, and service

organizations that exist on campus, or to start their own organizations in the case of non-represented interests. Through extracurricular activities, Colby students take advantage of the opportunity to be a part not only of Mayflower Hill, but of the greater Waterville

COmmunitv and the state of Maine. Clubs

and activities provide a forum for students to learn more about one another, our campus, and our world.

1 8 Colby College


Environmental Coalition

In addition to being learning centers, college and university campuses are self-contained communities that are upported by vast system of institutional and operational functions. Colleges have the opportunity to prove that a new model for environmentalism is possible, a model of what the

expect of

industry and governments around the globe. The seeds of change that are sown on our campus will grow and disperse widely. Students traditionally have staked out the moral high ground on environmental issues. We have the opportunity to make changes on this campus and create a microcosm of what we want the world to look like. To do this, we must make changes in our behavior and thinking as individuals as well as our behavior and thinking as a community.

Outing Club

With a combination of fresh, eager interest and seasoned leadership, the Colby Outing Club was nothing but the best this year. When we came back in the fall to see new officers who had been abroad and an office in shambles, there were doubts about our expected productivity. However, we stayed on our toes and eventually accomplished our highest goals. During the 2001-2002 academic year, the COC has led outdoor trips of all kinds that have included backpacking, day-hiking, snowshoeing, winter-camping, telemarking, nordic and alpine skiing, rock climbing, biking, and kayaking. For spring break, the COC led students all over the country. Rock climbers scaled some of the toughest boulders in Bishop, CA and kayakers ran down the roughest rapids that Chattanooga, TN has to offer. Backpackers explored the slot canyons of Utah and Arizona while road bikers cycled through Pennsylvania and Virginia. The COC also implemented new programs this year, such as S ummer Camp Sundays for Waterville-area children and video showings from our extreme trips. We carried on the lasting traditions of the COC Photo Contest and the COC Gear Sale/Swap and had a heck of a lot of fun. We send out luck and all of our love to our graduating officers: Elizabeth Som.mo, John Sullivan, Sally Hall, Andrew Jaspersohn, Ben Chandler, Josh Gerber, Nate Grubbs, Dave Seel, and Katie Dunn.

Hillel

The B'nai B'rith Hillel organization is involved with creating an active and friendly Jewish life on campus. Its aim is to help students maintain their faith while meeting and socializ­ ing with other Jewish students. Our activities this year included weekly Friday night Shabbat services, a New Year's celebration and Break Fast during the High Holy Days, parents' weekend brunch and lecture, Sukkot celebration in conjunction with Bates College, and making hamentashens for Purim.

Powder&Wig

Despite our name, Powder & Wig has surprisingly little to do with "wigs" and perhaps even less to do with "powder." But then again, theater tends to be crazy. This year's productions were: Bedrooms and Corridors by Noah Charney, Picasso at the

Lapin Agile by Steve Martin, Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott, and The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare

(Abridged) by the Reduced Shakespeare Company.

Newman Council For the Newman Council, this was a year of activity and growth. As the Catholic student group at Colby, we work very closely with the Catholic chaplins, Fr. Phil Tracy and Rachel Nelson. The Catholic community gathers every Sunday for Mass in Lorimer Chapel. In addition to Sunday Mass, liturgies are also celebrated on holy days. The group had fall and spring retreats. The retreats serve as a chance to gather and think more deeply about prayer and its role in our lives. The club also has a strong focus on social justice and service. We sponsored and organized the annual Coffee Social--an a cappella concert with homemade baked goods--and the Hunger Fast as fundraisers for the Mid­ Maine Homeless Shelter. The group also co-sponsored with the CVC the Hunger Banquet. They held a weekly Bible study on the book of Genesis. They also gathered for weekly dinner discussions on such topics as stem cell research (led by Prof. Frank Fekete), abortion and contraception, homosexuality and priestly celibacy (led by Fr. Phil Tracy).

20 Colby College


Mountaineering Club The Colby Mountaineering Club maintains the bouldering and climbing wall located in the field house. As of 2001-2002, the CMC meets biweekly to show climbing videos and discuss upcoming events. In addition, CMC climbers com­ pete in various bouldering and roped competitions. In 2001, the CMC placed very well at the Dartmouth Bouldering Competition and received a first place standing at the fir t annual competition at the YMCA in Bath, ME. Members were busy during the month of February as they attended compe­ titions at Williams College, Hampshire College, and Middlebury. ASCENSION, a special climbing event where teams of Colby students competed against one another, was held in the field house on April 19th. The members of CMC were inspired by their three co-presidents - Justin Gallagher, Tully Rohrer and Erik Lambert.

WMHBRadio

WMHB is a college and community radio station. The station broadcasts on 89.7fm, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a weekly, 365 days a year. The station is central Maine's only source for alternative music.

Echo

l

The Colby Echo is the official student newspaper of Colby College. The Echo was founded in 1877 by Colby students, and is completely student-run. All editorial and business decisions are made by the editorial board. The Colby Echo is published weekly, on Thursdays, during the fall and winter/ spring semesters. It varies from eight to eighteen pages in length, depending on the amount of news and advertising each week. The average issue has twelve pages. The newspa­ per has four sections: news, sports, arts and entertainment, and opinions. The Colby Echo primarily covers news and events on the Colby campus, but also regularly reports on events of interest to the Colby community in the Waterville/ Winslow area and throughout the state of Maine.

Class of 2002 21


Orchestra

The Colby Symphony Orchestra is made up of a wide variety of musicians. In addition to students, who make up about half of the ensemble, the Orchestra is staffed by Colby's applied music associates and local amateurs and profession­ als. The student members of the 2001-2002 Colby Orchestra were Faith Barker, Jared Bisogni, Mary Frederick, Matt Getty, Michael Greenberg, Vicky Hayes, Kathryn Heidemann, Kate Hughes, Kathryn Hulick, Hilary Jansen, Elinore Jenkins, Anne Kaferle, Andrew Keiser, Whitney King, Katherine Markowski, Ivan Mihajlov, Elena Morgenroth, Katie Nastou, Rebecca Nisetich, Heather Ogilvy, Matt Riportella-Crose, Leah Sablosky, Rebecca White, Hillary Wiley, Sarah Wright, Melissa Yosua.

1-Plav

Colby I-Play, Colby's intramural program, was commis­ sioned this year by two very enthusiastic leaders: James Ewing and Andrea Piekarski. The main goal of I-Play is to ignite stronger school spirit on the campus. I-Play presents an opportunity for students from all walks of life to become involved in many different sporting activities. Sports offered by the I-Play program include soccer, field hockey, flag football, broomball 3-on-3 basketball, softball, and a triathalon.

Amnestv International

Amnesty International had an excellent year with many new members joining as well as returning members. We hosted a Ben & Jerry's letter writing campaign, as well as a holiday letter writing event where Sankofa and The Jump Into per­ formed. We also collaborated with the local Amnesty chapters to host Jarnnesty, a concert to raise awareness about human rights, here on campus. In addition to our weekly petitions, we supported numerous protests, including the SOA protest in Georgia and Washington DC We wish the best of luck to our graduating seniors, Katie Wentzell and Meghan Foley, who have both held leadership roles in our organization.

Colbvenes

This past year the Colbyettes have had a blast preparing for and performing in various concerts and benefits. Sadly, the Colbyettes will be losing six seniors this spring. These soon to be veteran 'ettes are Mary Kathryn Brennan, Meredith Renda, Lizzie Ford, Kim Reiss, Meghan McKenna, and Avery Roth. Good luck to all of the graduating Colbyettes in whatever the future holds for each of them. Good luck to all of the remain­ ing Colbyettes as well. It is without a doubt that each 'ette will greet her future with success.

Megalomaniacs The Megalomaniacs, Colby's premiere (and only co-ed a cappella group, was founded by ex-patriots from Colby's premiere (and only) tuxedo-wearing a cappella group, the now­ extinct Tuxedo Junction. Now in our sixth year, and still co-ed (and loving it), we bring to Colby a splendiferous repertoire and extraordinarily sexy members. Who wouldn't love us, Con­ verse-clad, performing new favorites and timeless classics to a cappella-loving Colby crowds? We salute our graduating seniors: Jordan Finley, Mikhaila Noble, Terry Packard and Micki Young. Thanks to all your hard work and talent, the Megs have achieved greatness (just short of world domination). Your style, com.passion, and flare for the dramatic will be missed. Be well in

all that you do. Love, the surviving Megs: Erin Estey '03, Evan McGee '03, Kate Swayne '03, Etan Wenger '03, CiCi Malik '04, Annie Olmsted '04, Steve Samo '04, Joe Siviski ' 04, Kate Campbell 'OS, and Sean Kamp '05. We love to love to love you.

Broadwav MusicalRevue Broadway Musical Revue (affectionately known as BMR) was started many years ago as Colby's one and only showtune performance group. Each semester, BMR puts on a singing and dancing show made up of twenty or so showtunes. Although BMR changes for each show, with new songs and a new cast, some things always stay the same. There will always be lemonade and popcorn, white sneakers, jazz hands, "black numbers," kicklines, and our favorite melody man, pianist Gerry Wright. This semester, we sadly say goodbye to our departing seniors: Jordan Finley, Mikhaila Noble, Terry Packard, Ashley Reid, Alison Thacker, and Anne Tricomi. The cast of Spring '02 - Andrea Taylor, Mike Haley, Jon Nickerson, Anne Olmsted, Steve Samo, Sean Kamp, and Meg Musser - will miss you! We sincerely hope to see you at future BMRs, sitting at the alumni table and cheering us on!

Bl ue lights •

The Blue Lights represent an integral part of the Colby music community. Since 1994, the Blue Lights have been perform­ ing for students, parents, faculty, and admirers. Known not only for their great voices but also for their humor and colorful attire, this group provides amusing music to the entire Colby population. This year's performances for the Blue Lights included Orientation Weekend, Parents' Week­ end, Spa concerts, and, of course, graduation. Senior mem­ bers of the 2001-2002 Blue Lights were Geoff Albert-Bolinski, Neil Crimins, Monty Hobson, Michael Pincus, and Andy Keiser.

Col bVEight The Colby 8 has been in existence, more or less officially, since

1947. The following is an excerpt from the early

"Colby Eight"

History of the

1947-51. "Out of the turmoil of World War II,

many new elements found their way to the Colby Campus; some discordant, some harmonious -- all however, struggling to break through to the new "peacetime" pace. It was this kind of atmosphere that prevailed during October of 1947 when an event occurred which was to have a profound effect on the musical life at Colby. Many of the events affecting world history have occurred with little fanfare and no apparent significance at the time of their occurence, yet their significance was to become enormous. Such was the birth of the "Colby Eight." Credit for the conception and the midwivery of this brainchild goes to two "singing fools" -- Ed Waller '49 and Dick Leonard '50 -- who underwent the labor pains of giving birth to the group." "Mood Indigo" is, and always has been, the Colby Eight "theme" song.

Sirens

We are a small group of musically-inclined undergraduates who like to jam together. Sirens was conceived in the spring of 1998 by Trish Akins '00, Karen Macke '00, Jess Stitt '00 and Caroline Rosch '01. The first four Sirens enlisted the musical sty lings of Becca Leslie '99 and Stacy Reid Erickson '01, and became the fifth a cappella group at Colby College. The six founding Sirens had a vision - a gathering of women celebrating music from the heart. With the addition of Mairead Carney '02, Olivia Robbie '02 and Becky Sharp '02 in the fall of '98, this dream was realized. We entertain throughout the year at both on- and off-campus venues. But as much as we love our audience, first and foremost we sing to celebrate the music within ourselves.

Colbv Dancers Colby Dancers, a completely student-run dub, met once a week throughout the year for student-led classes. Each week a different student taught the class, and various types of dance including ballet, tap, modem, jazz, and hip-hop were explored. Under the direction of President Cortney Kirkendall and Vice足 President of Productions Shayna Scholnick, the dub put on a couple of small performances, including an exhibit of talent during Parents' Weekend and the annual fall workshop. The fall workshop, Half-Baked, was performed in Strider Theater, and was a great success. Throughout the year Colby Dancers worked to put on their spring performance, which was held in April at the Waterville Opera House. The performance, Cloud Nine, included nine original student-choreographed pieces ranging in style from ballet to hip-hop with guest choreography by Tina Wentzel, Theater and Dance faculty member. Overall, Colby Dancers provides opportunities for dancing, choreo足 graphing, teaching, and production.

Chorale

The Colby College Chorale, the College's largest choral group, performs concerts on campus and has toured in New England and Europe. The singers perform a variety of music every fall semester, and perform a major work with the orchestra in the spring. During spring break 2002 the chorale traveled to Greece and performed at a range of venues including the Ameri足 can Embassy, the home of the ambassador and schools in Athens. Of the trip Chorale director Paul Macklin said, "It's difficult to find words to express what the experience really was. Memorable, unforgettable, wonderful are all accurate, but don't quite measure up to the totality of our week." The trip was arranged by Chorale member Alex Aldous '02.

Im prov Colby Improv is Colby's first and only improvisational comedy troupe. We consist entirely of Colby students with a penchant for comedy. Listed in decreasing alphabetical order, with the assumption that "A" has a higher numerical value than, say, "Z," 2002's members were: James Ewing '02, Adrian LaRochelle '04, Evan McGee '03, Liz Neumann, 04, Ben Raphael '04, Jory Raphael '02, Amanda Rei '02, Neil Reynolds '03, Laura Thomason '03, and Mike Wiley '03. This year saw the addition of sophomore Ben Raphael and the subtraction of seniors James Ewing, Monty Hobson, Amanda Rei, and Jory Raphael. Another thing that personified this year was an airplane trip. Changing it up for the first time in decades, the troupe flew to Chicago and rocked the party that rocked the party at the Chicago Irnpro

Festival. Our ever足

increasing repertoire of skits and games expanded to include long-form improvisation. Plus, we're funnier than ever.

Colbv Democrats 2001-2002 was a landmark year for the Colby Democrats, as the Dems kept up the momentum which has been steadily flowing since the club's resmrection in 2000. Despite the challenge of finding outlets for their political energies in a non-election year, the Colby Dems managed to put together and attend an array of interesting events - Waterville's Democratic Party Caucus; meetings with Maine Senator and Dems sponsor Ken Gagnon; a series featuring Democratic candidates in the race for the open seat in the 2nd Congres­ sional District; an up-close evening talk with U.S. Senate challenger Chellie Pingree; and the keystone event, a Port­ land rally for Pingree featuring Speaker of the Maine House Mike Saxl, Congressman Tom Allen, and Senate Majority Leader Torn Daschle. As they look toward a crucial election in the fall of 2002, the Colby Democrats are closer than ever to their goals of spreading progressive values and forging a connection to local, state, and national politics.

The group was led by Abbie Newcomb, Eric Neumann, Cynthia Davies, TyAnn Gentry and Gayle Pageau who served on the adminis­ trative team and worked with other leaders in the group to plan activities for the year. The group started out by welcom­ ing the class of 2005 with cookies back in September. CCF also held its annual Thanksgiving dinner for the campus, and close to 300 students attended. During January the group was led by a group of freshmen who planned the January retreat at Chop Point. A small but enthusiastic group of CCFers spent their spring break on a missions trip in Camden, NJ at Urban Promise. CCF was also blessed to become involved in Psalm 63, a series of gatherings for young Christians in the mid-Maine area. Overall, this year was a great one for CCF, thanks to the spirit and cooperation of so many people who wish to make their faith a part of their lives at Colby.

Student Health on Campus

SHOC creates on-campus awareness of health risks such as eating disorders, AIDS and other se ually transmitted dis足 eases, alcohol and drug abuse. The group works closely with the health center staff and provides confidential consulta足 tions.

Admissions Volunteers

The admissions office is something with which all Colby students are familiar, whether you remember that overnight host who showed you the ins and outs of Colby as a perspec足 tive or your tour guide who walked backwards across campus in the snow and ice of the Maine winter. Or, maybe you came sight unseen to Colby but still remember the rigorous application process you went through and the feeling of accomplishment when that acceptance letter, signed by Parker Beverage, came in the mail. Your experience with Colby admissions was due to the hundreds of hours countless volunteers spent down in the Lunder House. Students volunteered as overnight hosts, lobby hosts, tour guides, informational session hosts, and ambassadors back to their high schools.

coneehouse

Increasingly, coffee has become known not only as a drink, but also as a wonderful excuse for getting together with friends. The Coffeehouse at Colby this year was no exception. Senior Max Sadler served as entertainment director and aimed to create an alternate environment for studying and social life. Events in the Coffeehouse this year included bands such as Easily Amused, ULU, and The Slip (which was held not in the Coffeehouse, but in Foss dining hall). The Coffee足 house also had Tuesday folk nights, game nights, open mike nights, poetry readings, and international coffee hour on Fridays. It was open nightly from 7:00 to 11:00 and was completely volunteer-run. Students could go study, talk, and enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a homemade cookie.

Woodsmen After the season of felling and bucking up trees, spring thaw would bring a mass effort to transport a company's logs down raging rivers to nearby mill towns. To celebrate a job well done, rugged lumberjacks (long since having drained their stashes of whiskey over the winter) would unwind and compete against one another to see who was the superior axeman or sawyer. Today's tirnbersports competitions recreate these lumberjack contests of old. Events include throwing a double-bit axe at a target 20 ft. away, using a razor-sharp axe to halve a vertical block of wood (simulates felling a tree), log rolling and throw­ ing, and the occasional canoe race. THis past year was a particu­ larly sucessful one,

Jith the women winning or placing well at

several meets and the men winning their first meet in about ten years. Good luck to all seruors Zac Hansen (captain), Patrick Olsen, Carter Pace, Beth Record, Bill Simpson, Elizabeth Som.mo, Phil Tyler, and Briana Wright. PV=nRT!

Badminton

The Colby Badminton Club, now in its sixth year, continued to increase in popularity. Led by co-presidents Kate Hughes

'03 and David Zlatin '02, both students and faculty members enjoyed many fine hours on the courts. During the fall semester, Bates Badminton Club came to Colby for a mini doubles tournament and the Bobcats were easily beaten by the White Mules team. Colby's team of Patrick Olsen '02 and Zlatin emerged as the tournament champions.

Psv chol ouv Cl ub

The Psychology Club is a student-run organization comprised of the department majors and minors; by virtue of declaring the major or minor the Colby student becomes a member of the Psychology Club. The club's leaders during 2001-2 were Ed Jastrem '02, Megan Gossling '02, and Kristin Schaefer '04. The faculty advisor was Colleen Burnham. The dub encour­ aged its members to participate in a volunteer program at the Waterville Social Club via the Colby Volunteer Center. The opportunity gave members the chance to work with people and enhance the lives of those with mental illness. Psychology club member also volunteered for Hospice and worked with terminally ill patients.

The mission of the Martial Arts Club is to enrich the mem足 bers' lives by developing their full potential mentally, physically and spiritually, in a positive, respectful environ足 ment created by the practitioners involved in the discipline of Tang Soo Do. The club stayed busy with many events throughout the year. The members of the 2002 Martial Arts Club included Michael Perkins, Christopher Kuhlman, Michael Rogalas ill, Isaac Griffith-Onnen, Thomas Jackson, Kathryn Hulick, Nurlan Assilbekov, Rafal Urban, Dana Wheeler, Stanislav Presolski, Andres Garron, Daniel Torres, Harrison Wreschner and Charles Fizer.

Massage Club The Massage Club has several goals. The first of these goals is to rela . We live in a high-stress en ironment and a good massage always helps relieve that stress. The second goal of the Massage Club is to learn about massage therapy. The Massage Club sponsors several workshops thoughout each semester, and is working to build a small library of reference materials. A lot is learned from these lectures, but certainly the most is learned from one another: "The best way to learn about massage is to get one." It's definitely a fw1 way to learn. The final goal of the club is to de elop trust among one another. The club tries to create a safe, comfortable environment where everyone learns together. Letting some足 one give you a massage can be an exercise in trust, therefore every effort is made to create open lines of communication. Massage Club is just a nice place to relax and hang out with good people.

CIRCL

The CIRCLE (Collective for Insight, Refuge, and Celebration of Life Experience) is a club th< celebrates spirituality in any and all forms. We welcome anyone who is interested in expl01 ing non-traditional spiritual paths, from Unitarianism to Buddhism to Wicca. This year w invited several speakers to Colby: Severn Tow], Waterville UU minister; Jane Raeburr author of a book on Celtic Wicca; and Barbara Balkin, Maine psychic. We also celebrate Samhain (Halloween) with jack-a-lantern carving, and Beltane (May Day) with TWO annuc maypole dances. This year, the Colby maypole was celebrated in the snow! A week later, w went to Popham Beach to dance around the maypole with pagans from all over the state c Maine. In addition to regular club activities, we have joined other clubs for a Tai Chi wod shop, selling Christmas ornaments for a nonprofit group, singing to nursing home patient! and walking through the Arboretum. Astrology workshops, tarot card workshops, and healing ritual after September 11th rounds out the list. Our website is www.colby.edu/circl( and the 2001-2 president was senior Stephanie Spitkc

Economics Cl ub The Economics Club had a very active year during 2001-2002. In the fall, events began with a cider- making party in East Vasselboro at Professor Hogendorn's house. The Grossman Lecture in the spring was highlighted by the humour of the speaker. The Economics Club aims to act as a forum for information and support in the job search process as well as for discussion of important political and economic issues. Additionally, the group aims to provide a social environment for students and faculty. The club creates a venue for stu­ dents to have input in the departmental curriculum. Senior members of the Economics Club included Jason Gimbel, the senior class representative, Meg Knight, the Director of Social Programming, and Todd Elmer, who was the Secretary I

Treasurer.

Jazz Band

The Colby Jazz Band consists of students who play the saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass guitar, and drums. The group plays traditional big band music from the Swing era to contemporary funk and Latin jazz, and several small combos specialize in improvisation. The Jazz Band performs frequently on campus as well as at jazz festivals throughout New England.

Alpine Team Perseveres through Injuries to Find Success The 2002 ski season started off slow due to a lack of snow, but the team embraced all oppor­ tunities to get on snow. Al­ though the team's home hill, Sugarloaf/ USA had a couple trails open during theearly sea­ son, the team ventured north to Mt. Ste. Anne in Quebec for their annual Christmas camp and trained for a week. The early training gave the Colby team an edge over competing teams, who didn't see snow until January. Senior women's captain Nicole Boulanger led the women's team through a 44 Colby College

greatseason. Althoughshe suf­ fered from torn ligaments in her ankle due to an early sea­ son crash and consequently couldn't race in the first three carnivals, she returned for the last three and led the women's team through a successful win­ ter. Juniors Jennifer Santini and Caroline Riss held the team to­ gether on the hill while Nicole recovered from her injury. Un­ fortun a t e l y , senior A u s tin Stonebraker also suffered from an early injury which ended his season. The junior men's co-captains Kristian Knights

andNoah Siebeck-Smith led the men's team to one of the most successful seasons in Colby Al­ pine history. Standout Robert Saunders was the first-ever Colby skier to win a carnival race and help carry the team to a fifth place overall in the GS at the Dartmouth Ski Way. He and Warner Nickerson attended the NCAA Championships in An­ chorage, Alaska. Despite the injuries and lack of early snow, the Alpine team persevered throughout the season, mak­ ing it a productive and success­ ful year for the team.

Men's Hoops Open Season With a Win The 2001 -2002 season was one of significant accomplishments and achieve­ ments for the team and individuals. The team opened the season with a big win in the State of Maine Tournament, followed up with a huge road win over NCAA qualifier Colby-Sawyer, which increased team confidence. A win in the Colby invitational over nationally-ranked Hamilton was followed by a disap­ pointing loss to USM, but the team followed up with a record third tournament championship a t St. Joseph's. In January, the Mules remained strong despite a run of injuries and, bumped by two road wins, had a chance for the outright title in the season finale against Amherst.

Men's Squash Wins National Championship The men's squash team had a productive and successful season considering that this was the first year with new coach Sakhi Kahn. The team got off to a rough start and really felt the absence of two juniors abroad, Rob Burton and Chris Reigeluth. Captains Justin Ucko and TJ Hauser, however, led the team through this tough time. After early-season losses to teams such as MIT, the men's team rebounded in the second half of the season with a key win over Wesleyan to finish well ahead of MIT in the national rankings. The men's team capped off the season on a very high note, winning the National Intercollegiate Squash Championship (Summers Trophy). There were also many other highlights to the 2001-2 men's squash season: freshman Ryan Phelan had a remarkable come-from-behind win in the Wesleyan match. Todd Hunsdorfer won MVP for his continuous success throughout the season. Trevor Alden McWilliams won Rookie of the Year, and Torn Mace won the Most Improved Player awar d . Looking to next season, the men's squash team is hoping to build upon their accomplish­ ments of this season. There will be huge gaps to fill with losses of Captains Justin Ucko and T.J. Hauser, and, of course, Michael "Seche" Sesko. There are, however, promising freshmen re­ cruits lined up for the 2002-3 season and, with new coach Sakhi Kahn being in his second season, the team expectations and goals will be much higher.

Swimming Ends on High Note The Women's Swim Team had a 5-4 record this year and finished 7th overal l at the 2002 NESCAC Champi足 onships. Despite quite a few bumps along the way and the absence of a diving team, the women's team swam in足 credibly well and surprised everyone in thei r end-of-sea足 son championships. Led by captains Jess Povtak '02 and Jess Knight '02, the women posted best times all over the board, due in a l arge part to

a s o l i d fre s h m a n c l a s s . Records broken this year in足 cluded the 1 00-yard fly, 1 00yard IM, SO-yard back, 50yard fly, and 400- freestyle relay.

league-series win over arch-ri­ val Bowdoin. The most dra­ ma tic victory of the season came in a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the seventh in­ ning to defeat league power Trinity 6-5. The second half of the season w a s a d iffi c u l t

stretch for the team; a combi­ nation of inexperience and playing against some of the best teams in the Northeast proved too much for the White Mules who suffered tough road losses to league champion Tufts, Amherst, and Williams, along with defeats at the hands of Division I University of Maine Orono and Division III power­ house University of Southern Maine. A dramatic home late­ season 4-3 victory over NCAA­ bound Brandeis gave the team a big spark and confidence that will prove a building block for next year.

New Members Revitalize Team The Colby White M ules took on a different look this season with the addition of eight new players. As is the custom, the W hite Mules started off their season in Fort M yers, Florida . This is where some of the first-year players began to shine. Freshman Annette Caswell, Toni-Lynn Robbins, and Kate H urd all had outstanding seasons. Team captain, senior Kirn Chadwick, ha d another stellar year, leading the team in most offensive catego­ ries, with a .350 batting average. The team's most improved player, sophomore Meaghan Shea, had an outstanding season, hitting well over .300 and p laying near-perfect defense in the outfiel d . Without a doubt, the most exciting moment of the season was when sophomore pinch hitter, Kate Trasher, smashed a grandslam homerun over the center field fence against nation­ a lly-ranked Tufts University to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Men Finish 1 7th in Nation The tremendous efforts of this year's men's lacrosse team al­ lowed the Mules to finish-up ranked 1 7th in the nation and runners-up in this year's NESCAC tournament. Senior captains John Shea, Bill Spencer, and Gabe Duncan-Roitman led the program to one of its best seasons ever. Spencer was unmatched in his ability to accurately feed behind the cage to open players. Both Shea and Duncan-Roitman were awarded All-American honors for their efforts in the goal and at defense. Chris Larson's ferocious playing style propelled the Mules to defeat Bowdoin in the NESCAC tournament semi-finals. Senior defenseman Jack Phillips was the most consistent player on the squad, allowing few players to get around his aggressive stick checks. Seniors Blake Grosch, Ryan Kane and Jed McGraw showed leadership at the midfield as well as strong scoring abilities. Senior assistant coach Scott MacPherson exhibited great coach­ ing skills to prepare the Mules for every challenge they faced this year. It was a season the seniors will never forget.

Women are Nationally Recognized This year's women's outdoor track season was once again led by the team's throwers and d i s t a n ce r u n n e r s . J u n i o r Connie Beal w a s back for her third incredible season. Not only was she once again the team's highest point-scorer, but she was also ranked top six­ teen in the nation in all of her events including the hammer throw, shot put, discus, and javelin (in which she is also the NESCAC champion . ) Other s trong throwers i n c l u d e d C a ro l ine M inkoff, C l a u d i a Laverde, Michelle Keady, and Meg McCusker: each a l s o ranked nationally. Senior Katie Macdonald was back this year in a new event for the women, the steeplechase, in which she cu rrently holds the school record. She was also ranked nationally in the event and con­ sistently brought the team points by finishing top three in nearly every race throughout the season. The distance crew w a s completed by seniors Gayle Pageau and Jen Smyth,

who showed consistent and measurable improvement in their events over the season. Sophomore M a ry Phelps helped to round out the dis­ tance events by performing excep tiona l l y w e l l in the 10,000-meter. The sprinters this year were carried by the teams second leading point scorer, Karima Ummah. Scoring well throughout the season in the high j ump, and ranking nation­ ally in the triple j ump, it is no surprise that Karima holds the school triple j ump record . Freshman Katie Ghelli helped the sprinters out all season by placing in every meet in both the 100-meter and 200-meter events. The team's leading pole-vaulter, Mary Hill, cre­ ated a new freshman record and p l a ced second at NESCACs. All i n all, i t was a good season for the female har­ riers, with a great deal of depth, pleasing places in the confer­ ence (third at NESCACs only by three points), and great rac­ ing weather.

Confident Mule Pack Pulls Through This season went very well: Colby men's tennis began the season strong, with a w in over the Brandeis team that swept Colby last year. The Mules continued playing well through a tough spring break schedule in California. As a team, Colby fought through a number of adverse conditions and situations in California, but was able to pull together and face the challenge. As the season continued, the Mules faced many very competitive NESCAC teams, but was able to give quite a few tough matches. The team found a rhythm mid-season, and defeated a highly-ranked NYU team as well as Conn. College. Talent-wise, this was one of the strongest teams seen in the past four years, and there is only improvement for the future. There were many close matches and Colby faced many tough competitors, but these teams met a unified, confident pack of mules.

Men's Crew Triumphs Over Bates and Bowdoin The men's varsity crew team welcomed a new boat, the Doris Kearns Goodwin '64, in the fall and dedicated the boat in the winter. The men's program competed in one of its most success­ ful fall and spring seasons, resulting in a top twenty-five finish in the Head of the Charles Regatta in the fall and a spring regular season record of 7-1 - 1 . The men's team brought home the second consecutive CBB victory, defeating both Bates and Bowdoin. A victory over the University of New Hampshire marked the first time in seven years that a Colby men's varsity boat defeated UNH. A duel with the Coast Guard Academy resulted in a tie, an uncommon occurrence in rowing competitions. The novice men brought depth to the men's program, completing the season with two boats. In the fall, the novice men finished second at the New Hampshire Championships in the Freshmen College Eight division, and continued to improve throughout the spring sea­ son to finish fifth at the New England Rowing Championships. The men's team loses graduating seniors Greg Robinson and Captain Peter Morelli, but the team expects to improve and continue to gain speed in the future.

When the Clock Struck Noon Shortly before noon on the last day of classes underclassmen and even some faculty mem­ bers gathered around the roped­ off area that enclosed the front steps of Miller Library. We, the seniors, however, had already begun celebrating many hours before. Whether it was a mi­ mosa party that began at 7am in Foss or an off-campus drinking fest, the seniors started the day early. The occasion: champagne on the steps. Close to two hours 1 40 Colby College

before the chapel struck twelve, everyone began to gather in front of the senior apartments. Here, someone had set up a makeshift slip-and-slide. With blatantopen containers in hand, in spite of security's almost con­ stant p resence, everyone mingled and rejoiced in the col­ lective inebriation. At 1 1 :30arn the mass began moving towards campus, heading down the hill by the chapel to the library steps. Once the steps were reached,

champagne began to spray and flow freely. The cheers were so loud that they undoubtedly reached every corner of cam­ pus. Thegroup's movementwas not permanently arrested here, for once the excitement of the steps had been exhausted, ev­ eryone stampeded to the pond. In a last triumphant celebration of the end of classes, the major­ ity of the Class of 2002 swam across the muddied Johnson Pond.

Shakespeare (abridged), happy hour at the Marchese Blue Light Pub . . . These activities comprised the exciting week that led up to graduation, affectionately termed "Senior Week . " The campus emptied of underclass­ men and the 470 members of the C lass of 2002 remained to celebrate the friends and memories that were made over the four years of their Colby careers. We won't lie, there w as a lot of drinking involved in this week-long celebration, but there was also a lot of sun, l aughter, and memory­ making. It was the post-COOT, pre-classes "Camp Colby" to which we longed to return. Class of 2002 1 -13
