Football player Dan Selway of the University of Redlands and runner Jennifer Tave of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps have earned Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Week honors.
Selway earned accolades on the men’s side for his effort in Saturday’s 23-7 win against Whitworth (Wash.). The senior captain connected on 23 of his 35 attempts without an interception for a total of 214 passing yards, which included all three touchdowns. Selway also reverted back to his receiving days as a freshman, and caught a pass in the end zone for the two-point conversion on the second touchdown of the game.
The Redlands quarterback has helped the Bulldogs to a 2-0 start, compiling 360 total passing yards with a 69.5% completion rating and five touchdowns.
Meanwhile Tave led the Athenas to a ninth place finish (second among non-Division I teams) at the UC Riverside Invitational.
She finished 29th overall with a personal best time of 17:49.0 which is fourth best in CMS history. She finished nearly 20 seconds ahead of the closest SCIAC competitor. Of the 28 runners in front of her, 22 were Division I, 3 post-collegiate, 2 NAIA and one JC.
