The Student Athletic Advisory Committee hosted a surprise breakfast for Colby College Junior Dom Kone. Kone won the national NCAA Division III Championship in the 60-meter dash on March 10th with a time of 6.75 seconds. What an accomplishment for a fellow Mule! We are so proud of you Dom!
Each season the NESCAC releases a list of honorees that is determined by both players and coaches to student-athletes who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to sportsmanship. SAAC would like to take a moment to recognize these athletes for their contributions to their teams and the athletic community.

After our most recent snow storm the Colby Cares About Kids (CCAK) program decided to make good use of the hills on campus for a day of sledding! It was certainly a fun day for all. The “Mentees” got to spend more time with their mentors and their mentors got to take a break from college life and enjoy a childhood pastime of all New Englanders. Thankfully this day was captured on camera, and we have some great pictures of Student Athletes who are active in CCAK and participated in this sledding extravaganza.
CCAK takes to Chapel hill, one of the best sledding venues on campus (in my expert opinion).

looks like someone stole Christian’s idea.

Sharing tips on sledding technique?
Lily Kramlich-Taylor ’14 (middle right) may be from California, but she has become a fan of sledding thanks to her mentee and some friends.
All good things must come to an end…
