Dean of First-Year Students Beverly Low made a bet with the seniors on the women's hockey squad — and she stuck to her word. After learning she would not be able to make the team's Dartmouth/Harvard road trip for the first time in four years, she issued this challenge: if Colgate beat Dartmouth, the seniors could paint her face for a home game of their choice. If Colgate beat Dartmouth and Harvard, the seniors could paint her face and dye her hair red. Although they lost to Harvard, the Raiders defeated the Big Green 2-1 on Nov. 11, the first win in program history over the perennial power. Fitting, then, that the seniors chose their Feb. 9 matchup against Dartmouth at Starr Rink, and Low was there — complete with face paint and other adornments — to cheer them on.
