On the evening of the final regular season men’s basketball game of the 57-year history of Ducey Gymnasium, the night began with a pregame celebration of Ducey Gym, and also ended in celebration as the CMS men’s basketball team defeated the University of Redlands to win the regular season Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) championship.

This is the busiest time of year for Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Athletics and if you are a big fan of the Stags and Athenas, the best time of the year. All told, 14 of the department’s 21 varsity athletic teams are all in action as winter and spring sports come to a crossroads. With the last of the spring teams – men’s tennis – starting its season on Feb. 20, all 10 spring sports are now underway. Here is a look at each of the 10 spring teams in this spring sports season preview.

Lighting across campus is now consistently clean and bright, with the addition last summer of LEDs in many areas.

Brian Worley was guiding an architectural photographer around campus recently when he mentioned CMC’s new, consistent evening glow. For many of the College’s years, that hadn’t been the case. High-pressure sodium lighting across the grounds was casting an orangey tint on things––not unlike a bad self-tanner.

Basketball team huddle

Many of us can easily recall individuals who inspired us as elementary school students, whether they knew it or not– people we met for an instant or heard speak, and then decided that, because of them, we wanted to stay in school, pursue a certain career or chase down a dream we didn't think possible.
