Fall is Upon Us

It is officially fall and classes are back in session here in Lewiston, however despite the season, the weather is incredibly hot-we're hoping this changes real soon.

The team has started its lifting and drylands programs and we are working to be in the best shape we can for this 2018 season.

This past weekend was Back to Bates weekend where many of our alumni and families were present at our tailgate to cheer on the Bates sports teams and hang out with past team mates.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend!

Summer Update 2017!

Summer Update 2017

It’s already August, and with only a month left until the bobcat alpine team heads east for fall semester we have been amping up the dryland and summer skiing hoping for an awesome 2018 season.

The whole team has been up to a lot this summer from summer skiing, internships, and various trips!

Here are just a few highlights of some of the bobcat skiers.

Incoming freshman Calvin Wilson and senior Hannah Johnson started out skiing in Mammoth! Hannah is now currently ripping it up in Chile for a few weeks.

Incoming freshman Amelia Kaplan, sophomore Tagert Mueller, and senior Sierra Ryder are all in New Zealand prepping for the season and appearing in a few New Zealand races. Tagert Mueller won a race in NZ scoring a personal best too!
Sophomore Emma Finfer skied in Hood for a week as well!
