Women’s basketball

The Lady Cavs open up the season with four straight blowout wins. This marks the program’s 26th straight regular season victory. The team slipped a little in the second half of their game against Southwestern on Nov. 10, being outscored 25-21 while still winning the game 68-34. The drop in second half play is not a trend for the team as they have, on average, scored twice as much as their opponents after halftime for the season.

Men’s basketball

The Cavaliers started the season with two double digit wins before falling to Hutchinson 96-57 on Nov. 10. The game was a great test for the Cavs as HCC was ranked 13th in the NJCAA Division I Men’s preseason poll. Coach Mike Jeffers pointed to the fact that the team needs to get more consistent on the offensive end of the floor.

Cross Country

This year’s NJCAA Cross Country Nationals were held Nov. 10 at Rend Lake College in Ina, Il. Men’s CC finished 22nd. Kidus Bekele finished a team best, 40th, with a time of 27:26 minutes. Women’s finished 12th. Jessica Thomas finished 64th with a time of 20:28. Both teams finished up their season with the NJCAA Half Marathon Championship on Nov. 17 in Levelland, Texas.
