WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

• Meggie Burgess and Natalie Mehl have led the Green Terror in scoring through the first two games of the season – both off the bench. Burgess scored 17 points in the opener at Goucher and is averaging 11.5 points per game. Mehl tallied 11 at Elizabethtown and is averaging 10.0 points per game. Ellie Glass established a career best with 14 points in her second career game on Monday and is third on the team in scoring at 9.5 points per game.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel closed the 2019-20 season with a 79-42 loss to then-No. 1 Swarthmore on Feb. 22, 2020.

• When McDaniel takes to the court at Penn College on Friday, it will be 629 days since its last competitive game. The Green Terror will have to wait another five days before its home opener, going 634 days between home games.

• The Green Terror does have its top two scorers from two seasons ago back to anchor the squad in 2021-22. Mike Wallace averaged 12.6 points per game as a sophomore, shooting 47.5 percent from the floor. He canned a team-best 27 3-pointers and was 77.2 percent from the free-throw line. Josh Sproul averaged 9.8 points per game two years ago. He was second on the team with 26 triples and shot 42.8 percent from the field.

• Kaelen Kanealey returns to lead the inside presence, pulling town a team-high 5.6 rebounds per game in 2019-20. He also scored 5.0 points per game and averaged 1.1 blocks per game.

WOMEN'S SOCCER

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel needed a penalty shootout to top Franklin & Marshall and win the 2021 Centennial Conference championship on Sunday.

• McDaniel is making is fourth NCAA tournament appearance but earned its first automatic qualifier after being selected as at-large bids in 2015, 2016, and 2017. The Green Terror will host a regional for the second time in program history and first time since 2016, when it won both its first- and second-round games to advance to the third round. After a 3-0 win over Swarthmore in the CC tournament last Friday, McDaniel has won 13 of its last 14 home postseason games (Centennial, ECAC, NCAA) with the only loss coming to Johns Hopkins in the 2016 CC championship game.

• Hannah Schepers established a new program-best mark for goals in a career with her 41st and 42nd collegiate markers last Friday against Swarthmore. She accomplished the feat in just three seasons. She and Maddie Schwartz are on the brink of breaking the 100-point barrier. Schepers enters the NCAA tournament with 95 career points while Schwartz has 94.

• With her 11th individual shutout of the season on Sunday, Katherine Carstensen broke her own record for most shutouts in a single season and tied Michelle Mullen for the most shutouts in a career with 23. Her 0.17 goals-against average this season is best in Division III as is her .940 save percentage.

SWIMMING

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel split a trimatch at St. Mary's (Md.) on both the men's and women's side last Saturday, defeating Stevenson but falling to the hosts.

• Thomas Fagiolo recorded the first double win day of the season for the Green Terror men. He captured his the 1000 free in his first collegiate race at that distance with a time of 10:48.45. He was also victorious in the 200 IM (2:10.32). Christian Walker added his first college win, touching first in the 200 breaststroke.

• Ella Tomkins and Hannah Cehelsky each had two-win days last Saturday at St. Mary's. Cehelsky had a pair of individual wins, touching first in both the 500 and 1000 freestyle races. Tomkins captured the 200 free and also anchored the 200 free relay to a victory.

CROSS COUNTRY

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel competed at the Centennial Conference championship on Oct. 30.

• The Green Terror returns to Big Spring High School for the second time this season. This is the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Region meet after Division III moved from eight regions to 10 this fall. The Mid-Atlantic Region is an offshoot of the old Mideast but with approximately 10 fewer teams competing. The new region covers everyone south and west of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania and all Maryland and West Virginia.

• In the last trip to Newville, Wyatt Farace (28:56.62) and Nick Raumann (29:40.96) both turned in all-time top-20 times in the 8,000-meter race. All of the women who competed on Sept. 25 competed on the short course of just 4,000 meters but will take on the 6,000-meter course this weekend.

WRESTLING

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel placed 10th at the Messiah Invitational, competing with just 13 wrestlers last Saturday.

• Michael Bromley led the Green Terror in the opener last week with a 5-2 day at 174 to place fourth. He recorded a pair of pins along the way. Tony Wuest notched a 3-1 day with three falls at heavyweight while Xavier Howard (157) and Valentino Pryor (184) each had 3-2 outings in their McDaniel debuts.

• This weekend's Green Terror Duals will be the only home action for McDaniel until hosting Gettysburg in the conference opener on Jan. 19. The Green Terror also hosts a pair of quad matches over the final two weekends of the regular season.
