What a pleasure it is to be writing up a schedule of Colorado College sporting events. After an eventful-yet-relaxing summer, it’s truly a pleasure to be back on campus. It’s been our first full year with our new facilities, and something special seems to be in the air. In this re-engineered look around the world of CC sports, you will find information on all your favorite varsity, club, and intramural sports. When checking out varsity sports teams, the only teams in full swing now, the numbers in parentheses mark a squad’s overall record, while “Tigers Making Headlines” shows any Tigers from their respective teams gaining conference or national honors (as well as noteworthy accomplishments i.e. men’s soccer). Also be sure to take note of any upcoming home games (“vs.” as opposed to “at) so we can cheer on our Tigers in large numbers at our beautiful home facilities. I feel it that the 2014-2015 athletic year will bring a national championship to campus – I just can’t wait to see who brings it home first.
