Remembering David Wells at the DAVID WELLS CLASSIC

Remembering David Wells at the DAVID WELLS CLASSIC

"In his 32 years as a student, athlete, coach, athletic director, and mentor, David Wells touched the lives of thousands of people in this community," said Pamela Brooks Gann, Claremont McKenna College president. "He was a splendid human being and role model, not just to student athletes and coaches, but to us all. His professional legacy is highlighted by having crafted one of the finest Division III programs in the nation, and by the scores of young athletes who are, quite simply, better human beings for having known David Wells."

Over Thanksgiving weekend the CMS Athenas hosted the annual David Wells Classic, finishing 1-1.

The first game was a disappointing defeat, 65-61, against UC Santa Cruz. Frannie Hemmelgarn once again lead the team with 17 points and 7 rebounds. The highlight, however, was a standout performance by freshman forward/center Jennifer Sitton. Coming off the bench, Sitton went 7-7 for 14 points and attacked the boards with 5 rebounds.

In the second game, the Athenas dominated the visiting Arizona Christian Firestorm. They came out strong running a substantial lead at the start of the game and finishing the first half up 42 to 28. Forward Kalika Tullock, helped ensure the win with 21 points off the bench. The team finished strong, winning 86-66.
Still at the start of the season, the CMS Women's Basketball Team is eager to face more opponents and anticipates a successful year.
