Athletics Week In Review (Full Version)

=============== Winter – Women===================

Women’s Basketball
The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women’s basketball team extended its winning streak to six games last week with a 60-32 win at Caltech and a 50-44 overtime victory at home over Chapman. Sophomore center Kailee Severt (CMC ’18) posted 19 points against the Beavers, including five three-pointers. Junior guard Jai Dungca (CMC ’17) led all Athenas with 12 points and four steals in the matchup with Chapman. The 11-4 (6-0 SCIAC) Athenas are tied for first place in the conference and will look to continue the winning streak this week against Redlands on Jan. 19.

Women’s Swim and Dive
It was a busy weekend for the CMS swimming and diving athletes who participated in the UCLA Diving Invite on Jan. 15 and a double-dual meet against Caltech and Whittier on Jan. 16. The Athenas swept their SCIAC competition on Saturday, highlighted by wins by Carli Lessard (HMC ’17) in the 1- and 3-meter diving events; Stephanie Doi (CMC ’17) in the 100-yard butterfly and 100 breaststroke; and Riley Hoffman (CMC ’19) in the 200 breaststroke and 100 IM. Both programs have yet to lose a SCIAC meet this season and hope to keep that momentum going in their next meet which is against La Verne on Jan. 30.

====================== Winter – Men========================

Men’s Basketball
The Stags earned their first SCIAC win of the season, at Caltech last week, before falling to Chapman at home. Sophomore guard Joey Malgesini (CMC ’18) put up 19 points in the 64-56 win, with Jack Earley (CMC ’16) and Michael Scarlett (CMC ’18) also posting double-digit point totals. Despite beating first-place Caltech, CMS sits last in the conference with a 7-7 overall record, but a 1-4 mark in SCIAC contests. Next up is a home game against Redlands on Jan. 20.
