Bobcats of the week of Feb. 6, 2006

Ricky Weisskopf '08
All-American squash player Ricky Weisskopf (San Salvador, El Salvador) continued his stellar sophomore season by going 3-0 over the weekend against the No. 1 players from Dartmouth, Tufts and St. Lawrence.Whether or not his team wins, Weisskopf almost always does. He is 16-1 this season, with his only loss coming against Yale senior Julian Illingworth, the second-ranked player in college squash.

Among other opponents, Weisskopf has won 3-0 against the top players from Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Williams, Amherst and the U.S. Naval Academy.

Keelin Godsey '06
At the State of Maine indoor track and field championships, held Friday at Bates, senior co-captain Keelin Godsey broke his own meet record in the 20-pound weight throw, with a first-place toss of 61 feet and 2 inches. But that wasn't even what got the seven-time All-American thrower the most excited.In the shot put event that followed, Godsey (Parker, Colo.) threw the shot 45 feet and 11 1/4 inches, and in doing so he met the automatic qualifying mark to compete at the NCAA Division III championships, to be held at St. Olaf College March 10-11. That was a feat that has eluded Godsey in his collegiate career.
