Men’s Soccer: Senior Ben Hryszko

Fresh off their first two-game winless skid since early 2019, the Blue Streaks needed a spark against the College of Wooster and they got one from Hryszko.  Tied in overtime, the fifth-year headed the ball in the back of the net on a beautiful pass in from James Hoover to win the match 2-1, improving JCU to 2-1-1 on the season.

Women’s Soccer: Senior Danielle DelGiudice

DelGiudice is a huge reason why the Blue Streaks have started their season 4-1 for the first time since 2008.  The senior goalkeeper made a combined 16 saves in JCU’s two victories last week, including nine in a 1-0 overtime win against Allegheny on Saturday.

Volleyball: Sophomore Maddie Maziarz

Men’s Golf: Senior Johnny Roder
