Calvinís trademark this season has been its clutch shooting from everywhere on the floor.  From beyond the three-point line, in the paint and from the charity stripe, the Knights have consistently been a quality shooting team.  Saturday afternoon exemplified just that as Calvin defeated Kalamazoo by a score of 86-59.

(written by Derek Neice, Mitch Blankespoor & Jeff Febus)

One of the hardest working groups of athletes at Calvin are certainly the members of the Calvin swim and diving program. Here is why: Even before the fall semester begins, swimmers start practicing intensely, and their hard work continues all the way into February to Conference, the meet where that hard work pays off.

For the Calvin women, this initial day at Calvinís Venema Aquatic Center has been one of the better first days of conference competition in recent memory and the hard work they have put in definitely is showing.  The Knights put up 323 points Thursday, leading the next closest team by 147 [second-place Hope with 176], and moving to Fridayís races they are the frontrunner for the conference title.

On the menís side, Calvin sits in fourth place with 124 points, just four points behind third place Olivet. Hope leads the menís standings with 295 points with Kalamazoo second with 254 points.
