Office of Communications » Pitzer College Students Recognized for Outstanding Athletic Achievements
Claremont, Calif (April 25, 2014) — Pitzer College congratulates Kyle Dalrymple ’17, Kaitlin Jones ’14, Jana London ’14 and Christopher Wiechert ’14, whose outstanding performance on the field, in the pool and on the court were recognized at the 2013-14 Student Athlete Awards dinner on April 21 at Pitzer College.
Dalrymple won the Daley Award for Athletic Achievement. In his first year at Pitzer and first season swimming for the Sagehens, Dalrymple broke four school records (two individual and two relay) of which he still holds three. He broke the team record in the 200-yard breaststroke by .15 seconds and cracked the minute barrier in the 100-yard breaststroke—only the fourth swimmer in team history to do so. Dalrymple helped lead the team to a second place finish in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC).
Kaitlin Jones ’14 received the Judie and Frank Fenton Award for Athletic Leadership, honoring leadership on and off the field. Jones has served as a lacrosse team captain, changing positions to the midfield this season to help the Sagehens set a school record in wins. An economics major, Jones has been a member of the SCIAC All-Academic team and has helped lead the team to a 15-3 record this season, making the Sagehens the top seed in the upcoming SCIAC tournament.
Jana London ’14 won the Most Outstanding Student Athlete Award for her outstanding play as an attacker and midfielder on the lacrosse team. This season she leads the SCIAC with 68 goals (14 more than the second place player), including a career-high 10 goals in a single game, which she followed with an eight-goal game less than a month later. Last year, the psychology major ended the season with a team-high 73 goals and was selected First-team IWLCA All-West Region, first-team All-SCIAC and SCIAC All-Academic team.
International political economy major Christopher Wiechert ’14 won the 2014 Most Outstanding Student Athlete Award, capping off a stellar athletic college career that he kicked off by winning 2011 West Region Rookie of the Year and ITA National Rookie of the Year. He was named first-team all-SCIAC in 2011, 2012 and 2013 (2014 awards are still pending), and has helped the Men’s Tennis team to a No. 13 national ranking and a second place finish in the SCIAC this spring.
