CMS Athletics Week In Review (11/23 – 11/29/15)
Posted: December 4, 2015
============= Fall – Men===============
Men’s Water Polo
The Stags had the last week off in order to prepare for the NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championships play-in game at USC on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. It will be the first time CMS has participated in the NCAA Championships. CMS is one of only six teams remaining nationally. The Stags are currently on a 17-match winning streak and went undefeated against conference opponents in 2015. In addition, they earned their 26th conference title a week ago after beating Whittier in the finals of the SCIAC Championships.
====================== Winter – Women========================
The Athenas split a pair of contests in the David Wells Classic over the weekend. A strong fourth-quarter effort helped CMS to pull away for the 69-53 victory over Willamette (Ore.) on Nov. 27. Kailee Severt (CMC ’18) led the team in points with 22, but Kayalin Akens-Irby (CMC ’18) made a noticeable impact off the bench with 10 points and five rebounds, including a perfect field-goal percentage. The Athenas fell to Puget Sound (Wash.) in the second game of the tournament 76-67 on Nov. 28 despite a quality night from Alyson Young (CMC ’17), who finished with 19 points and eight rebounds. A Dec. 5 road matchup with Westmont will be the next test for the 4-1 Athenas.
Women’s Swim and Dive
The CMS swimming and diving teams will return to action this week at the AT&T Winter National Championships in Federal Way, Wash., on Dec. 3-4. The Athenas and Stags swept Chapman and Cal Lutheran in their first SCIAC meet of the year on Nov. 7, and will look to continue their recent conference success Dec. 5 at Axelrood Pool against Redlands. The meet begins at 10 a.m. with diving.
====================== Winter – Men========================
The CMS men’s basketball team continued its winning streak last week thanks to a pair of victories in the David Wells Classic. Shelby Lane (CMC ’16) helped CMS edge Bristol University (Calif.) 65-63 with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Lane, Jack Earley (CMC ’16), Joey Malgesini (CMC ’18) and Evan Davis (CMC ’19) all recorded double-digit point totals in the 64-43 win over Carleton (Minn.). The Stags are now 5-2 on the year and have won five in a row leading into their next game, Dec. 2 at home against San Diego Christian at 7:30 p.m.
