Garnet Sports Update Feb. 6, 2017

Watch this week's video and catch a new segment at the end, the Workout of the Week.

Men's Basketball won both of its games this week, topping Muhlenberg at home on Wednesday and then beating McDaniel in overtime on the road on Saturday. Chris Bourne (right) scored his 1,000th career point on this free throw on Wednesday. Teammate Zack Yonda needs one more point to join him in this distinguished club.

For the third time this season, sophomore Cam Wiley was named the Centennial Conference Player of the Week. He averaged 21 points per game in the two wins.

Indoor Track and Field completed at split squad meets this weekend, and at the Villanova Invite, senior distance runner John Gagnon (left) set a new school record in the 3,000 meter run, clocking in at 8:30.96.

Indy Reid-Shaw (left) finished second among Division III runners at the Villanova Invite in the 3,000-meter run on Saturday with a time of 10:18.28.

Freshmen Louie Rosler and Sydney Covitz both finished in the top 10 in the 800-meter run at the Frank Colden Invitational.

Badminton took on the Bryn Mawr College Owls on Saturday, winning five of the matches. May Htet and Tracy Tang were double winners. Htet earned a win in No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles, and Tang won in No. 2 doubles and No. 4 singles.

Lindsay O'Sullivan (right) continues to make her case for consideration as one of the finalists for the Centennial Conference Rookie of the Year. The freshman added two more double-digit scoring efforts this week and is averaging 12.2 points per game (10th in the conference). She is also 13th in the conference in rebounds with 6.9 per game.

Swarthmore Men's and Women's Swimming honored 11 seniors prior to Saturday's wins over Dickinson College. A sweep of the 200-yard breaststroke by sophomores Liz Staton, Sarah Solomon and Sierra Bienz helped secure the victory late for the Garnet (117-88).

Men's Swimming held off Dickinson 113-92 thanks to wins in both relay races and four of the individual events. The men's team wraps up the conference season with the second-best record in the league (5-1).

Black History Month

Remembering Ruff Herndon and Six Decades of Dedication

>> Thanks to a letter from Mark Gross '39, we know that Herndon experienced injustice firsthand. The letter recounts that Herndon was not allowed to eat with a team on a road trip to Easton, Pennsylvania because of his skin color. Gross credits the event as the catalyst of his lifelong pursuit of integration in his community and writes, "I was acting because I had seen an unusually fine gentleman unfairly treated, and I was suddenly sure there must be thousands of good people being unfairly treated."
