Athletes of the Week

Week of February 21, 2011

Conrad Sheffer

Men's Swimming & Diving

Thanks to his efforts in the 2011 SCIAC Swimming and Diving Championships, Sheffer is the sole or part owner of six CLU swimming records.

Breaking the school record in the 200-yard individual medley twice, once in the preliminary heats and again in the finals, his time of 1:54.31 was good enough for sixth place overall in that event.

In addition to breaking the one-minute barrier with his effort in the 100 Breast (59.47) Sheffer also set new CLU records in the 200 Breast (2:06.83), 400 IM (4:06.39) and helped set the fastest times ever in the 200-yard Freestyle Relay (1:24.39), 800 Freestyle Relay (7:01.43) and 400 Medley Relay (3:34.29) events.


Sheyenne Machida

Women's Swimming & Diving/Track & Field

Beginning with her performance at the Swimming and Diving Championships, and ending at the Rossi Relays, Sheyenne Machida capped off one of her most successful weeks ever as a Regal by writing her name in the record books of two different sports within the same week.

Finishing as the conference runner-up in the one-meter diving competition, Machida's 376.60 point-performance was also good enough to set a brand new program record in that event.

Six days later, the freshman traded in her swimsuit for her track outfit and turned in the fourth-highest mark ever recorded in CLU track history at 2.75 meters.


Geri Jensen

Softball

In the first game of a doubleheader against Redlands, Geri Jensen turned in her finest performance as a Regal, finishing a perfect 2-2 with six RBI and home runs hit during each of her at-bats.

The sophomore became the first Regal to drive in six runs in a single game since Emily Robertson accomplished the feat against Occidental on April 4, 2009.

Responsible for two of the Regals' 19 home runs hit last season, the shortstop matched her entire career home run total in a two-hour timespan.

In game two, Jensen hit her third home run of the day, bringing the home crowd to their feet with her extraordinary effort at the plate against the Bulldogs.

In one day, against one team, Jensen's nine RBI matched the total number of runs driven in throughout the entire 2010 season.
