Streaks of the Week: April 24-25

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.



Baseball: Senior, Michael Anderson

Despite an ugly weekend against Wilmington where the baseball team lost three of four, Anderson shined. In the two Sunday games, the senior went a combined 5-for-6 with six RBIs and a home run.  The games were the first Anderson had ever registered three hits in a single contest and game two was the first time he ever had three RBIs in a game. 

Softball: Sophomore, Katie DeBord

The softball team snapped a 15-game losing streak by taking three of four against Wilmington, and DeBord was a big reason why.  The sophomore only gave up three runs in 13 innings pitched over the weekend including a six-inning, shoutout performance in game one on Sunday. 

Men’s Golf: Sophomore, Nolan Adams

In the two-day Battle of the Cuyahoga tournament, Adams led the Blue Streaks with a 74 on day one and a 79 on day two, winning the event by one stroke 628-629 over Mount Union.  The 74 at Highland Hills was tied for first on the day while the 79 was tied for fourth at Pine Hills. 

Men’s Lacrosse: Senior, Skyler Blake

Blake’s season has truly been one that will forever live in John Carroll’s lore forever.  The senior broke his own single-game goal record in the victory against Muskingum on Saturday as he found the back of the net 12 times.  Blake’s goal total on the season now moves to 89, which is No. 1 in the NCAA regardless of division. 

Women’s Lacrosse: Senior, Colleen Grombala

Grombala is also one who is having a season of historic proportions.  Amazingly, the senior leads the NCAA in goals regardless of division in goals as well with 83 but it was her skills of finding open players as well that truly shows her greatness. Grombala set a single-game program record with 11 assists to six different players in the win over Muskingum while leading the team in that category for the season with 27 as well.
