The Carroll News Sports Section Streaks of the Week: Feb. 26 – Feb. 27, 2021

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: Senior, Luke Hippler

In a much-needed victory over Otterbein last Saturday to secure a home OAC Tournament game, Hippler stepped up big on Senior Night and registered 14 points and seven rebounds. The senior also recorded his first three-pointer in 22 games.

Women’s Basketball: Senior, Abby Adler

With an OAC regular-season championship on the line, Adler delivered as she scored a career-high 23 points last Friday as the Blue Streaks defeated Otterbein to clinch their second No. 1 seed in the OAC Tournament in three years.

Men’s Lacrosse: Senior, Skyler Blake

The Blue Streaks’ season could not have started better than with a program-record 32 goals, due in part to Blake’s performance. The senior attack scored six of the goals and, along the way, set the program record for most points in a career with 245.

Women’s Lacrosse: Sophomore, Lainey Donalson

In a resounding 19-1 win over Heidelberg on Feb. 24, Donalson recorded her second-career hat trick as she found the back of the net three times. The sophomore has now scored at least a goal in each game of her career except one.

Women’s Track & Field: Junior, Rory Vigrass

Vigrass has been an anchor all season on a team that has been running hot. The junior won the 3,000-meter race, beating her next closest competitor by 16 seconds. She also came away victorious in the 1,000-meter dash.
