WRESTLING: Senior Ray Martin was named the Centennial Conference Wrestler of the Week for the second time in his career following a strong performance at the Wildcat Invitational last Saturday.
Martin racked up three wins on the way to a runner-up finish at 174 in the event hosted by Penn College. He posted a 16-0 technical fall in his first match and tacked on a pair of first-period pins to reach the finals. Martin came up just short of his first individual title of the season, falling by a 2-0 decision.
The senior grappler is 10-3 overall with five pins and has placed in each of the first three tournaments this season. He was sixth at the Messiah University Invitational on Nov. 6 and fourth at the Washington & Jefferson College Invitational on Nov. 13. Martin’s first nod as CC Wrestler of the Week came during his sophomore campaign.
Gettysburg returns to action with the Petrofes Invitational hosted by Messiah on Dec. 3-4.
Senior Christina Richson was named the Centennial Conference Player of the Week in women’s basketball after leading Gettysburg College to an upset victory over No. 5 Messiah University last week.
Richson helped the Bullets knock off the fifth-ranked Falcons 65-55 with a career-high 20 points. She finished one three-pointer shy of the program record by hitting six from beyond the arc and topped her previous personal scoring high by five. The senior guard tallied eight points in the third quarter when Gettysburg out-scored Messiah 19-10. She finished 7-of-16 overall and 6-of-11 from three-point distance, while adding three rebounds and three steals.
The victory over Messiah marked Gettysburg’s biggest win over a ranked opponent since a 73-65 decision over No. 4 Scranton in the opening round of the 1995 NCAA Division III playoffs.
Richson leads a well-balanced lineup with 11.7 points per game this season. She has connected on 47.4 percent of her three-pointers.
Gettysburg College wrapped up a return to competition this fall with 94 student-athletes being named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll. Additionally, seven student-athletes landed spots on the Academic All-Centennial Team.
To be nominated for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must be a sophomore or higher in class standing and have a cumulative GPA of 3.40 or higher. Members of the Academic All-Centennial Team made both the Academic Honor Roll and the all-conference team in their respective sports.
Women’s soccer led the way with five Academic All-Centennial selections in seniors Emma Bedell, Kelly Gaudian, Erika Muskus and Molly O’Shea and junior Grace Slevin. All five were named to the all-conference team with Muskus earning first-team status, O’Shea and Gaudian being named second team, and Bedell and Slevin picking up honorable mention. Gaudian and O’Shea were named Academic All-Centennial for the second time in their careers, while the remaining three players were all first-time honorees.
Senior defensive end Alex Raimondo earned Academic All-Centennial status for the second time in his career. He was a first-team all-conference selection and finished tied for third in the conference in tackles for a loss with 18 for the Bullets’ football team this fall.
Rounding out the Academic All-Centennial selections was senior forward Lauren Beccaria from the field hockey team. Beccaria picked up her first Academic All-Centennial nod after landing a second-team all-conference selection.
Football led all Gettysburg fall sports with 28 Academic Honor Roll selections, while women’s soccer featured 23 honorees.
