Sarah Lawrence College celebrated its student athletes at its annual awards banquet held in the Campbell Sports Center on May 8.
While SLC students are accomplished in their respective sports—the men’s and women’s tennis teams and the women’s swim team all won their conference championships this year and the equestrian team sent a rider to the national competition after qualifying riders at the regional and zone levels—the culture of athletics at the College focuses more on participation than winning and losing.
Athletic Director Mary LeVine said in her remarks to the students: “…we see the value in the process—the effort, commitment, passion and sportsmanship that leads to growth—and, I would argue, true success."
