Streaks of the Week (12/12)


Noah Tylutki, Special to the Carroll News

Each week The Carroll News sports section names five Blue Streak athletes “Streaks of the Week”. Congratulations to this week’s athletes on their outstanding performances.

Men’s Basketball: Sophomore, Emmett Chambers

Despite losing 104-98 against Marietta last Saturday, Chambers recorded career-highs with 13 points and six rebounds. The sophomore was called into action after several JCU big men were in foul trouble.

Women’s Basketball: Senior, Sarah Sprecher

Sprecher delivered in a big OAC matchup against Marietta last Saturday, scoring a career-high 20 points including 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc.  The Blue Streaks are now 6-1 (2-0 OAC) which is their best start since 2014-15.

Men’s Track & Field: Sophomore, Garrett Clark

Clark was a big contributor to JCU’s success at the Youngstown Ice Breaker.  He broke the 400-meter school record previously set in 2016, as Clark ran the race in 49.37 seconds in a field made up of many Division I runners.

Women’s Track & Field: Sophomore, Lucia Cannata

Cannata shined at the Youngstown Ice Breaker as she broke two school records.  She shattered the 200-meter record by running it in 25.21 seconds and also the 60-meter record in 7.18 seconds in a largely Division I field of runners. 

Wrestling: Sophomore, Kyle Murray


At the RIT Invitational, the Blue Streaks placed second overall and were led by Murray. The 125-pounder placed third overall in his weight class with a 4-1 overall record on the day while earning 17.5 team points for JCU.
