Golf (Athenas)

The women's golf team ended the 2017 season in eighth nationally, the program's highest-ever finish at the NCAA Championships. The team total score of 1262 is also the lowest in program history at the NCAA Championships. Margaret Loncki ’18 finished in a tie for fifth individually.

Golf (Stags)

The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's golf team concluded their run through the NCAA Championship tied for 12th place as the Stags played their lowest-scoring round on the final day with a 298. 

Lacrosse (Athenas)

The CMS women's lacrosse team fell 15-12 to regional rival Colorado College in the second round of the NCAA Championships on May 14. The game was tight throughout the first half, but then when the Tigers scored three in a row to start off the second half, the Athenas' late rally was not enough to pull out the tournament victory. CMS ends this season with an impressive 16-2 record, the best mark in program history.
