Samantha McLaughlin - Women's Swimming & Diving

Kyle Wood - Men's Basketball
The senior point guard on Thursday became just the seventh player in Chapman's Division III history to earn over 1,000 points in his career. Wood scored 13 in the Panthers' 79-66 win over Southwestern College (Ariz.) and now has 1,011 career points.

January 21, 2010
Linda Ly - Women's Basketball
Earlier this month, Ly became just the ninth player in school history to reach 1,000 career points, putting an exclamation point on a stellar career for the two-sport star. The team's only senior scored 18 points in a loss to Redlands to eclipse the 1,000-point plateau (just the fifth Division III female to do so at Chapman) and currently has 1,026 as the Panthers head to Dallas this weekend.

January 15, 2010
Griffin Ramme - Men's Basketball
The junior shooting guard is one big reason why Chapman's men's basketball team is ranked No. 16 in Division III currently. Ramme is one of three Panthers currently averaging over 10 points per game (10.9) and he leads Chapman with 30 three-pointers, shooting over 45 percent from beyond the arc.

January 7, 2010
Simone Ibbotson - Women's Basketball
The junior has been at the forefront of Chapman's recent resurgence, helping the Panthers rattle off five consecutive victories to even their record at .500 for the year. Ibbotson currently leads the team in scoring, averaging 13.7 points per game.

December 17, 2009
Chesley Hanle - Women's Swimming & Diving
Earlier this month, the freshman won the first two diving events of her career, capturing first in both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard competition against Biola University. Not only was it her first win, but it was her first collegiate event after missing the Redlands Invite in November. Hanle earned a high score of 201.85 in the 1-meter as well as 179.55 on the high dive.

December 9, 2009
Justin Riley - Men's Basketball
The Chapman University men's basketball team has climbed to No. 12 in this week's NCAA Division III top-25 poll (on thanks, in part, to the play of Riley in last weekend's Lee Fulmer Memorial Tournament in Redlands. The junior power forward garnered tournament MVP honors after scoring 20 points in the Panthers' 73-45 win over George Fox in the championship game on Saturday.

October 29, 2009
Kat Kowalski - Women's Volleyball
On Saturday, the junior setter surpassed 1,000 assists in a season for the second time in her career. She currently ranks No. 2 in Chapman history in career assists with 2,898 and is on pace to shatter the school record for career assists (3,366) as a senior next season. One reason is performances like her match against Redlands earlier this month. Kowalski recorded a school-record 68 digs in the Panthers' five-game victory over the rival Bulldogs and added 20 digs.

October 21, 2009
Claire Callister - Women's Soccer
The senior forward has developed a knack for scoring with impeccable timing this season. Callister has scored three goals for the Panthers and all three have come in the clutch as game-winners. In fact her three game winning goals are the most on a team with 11 wins so far this season and she has seven game winning goals in her career. Callister was at it again against West Region rival U.C. Santa Cruz on Saturday.

October 13, 2009
Steve Neville - Men's Water Polo
Sometimes the longest road is the most rewarding. That might be said for Chapman utility player Steve Neville who, at 24-years old, is six years removed from his freshman year at U.C. Irvine. However, it's the Panthers' water polo team that is reaping the benefits of Neville's comeback. The junior ranks second on the team in both goals (27) and assists (28) and he has helped Chapman to a No. 6 ranking in Division III.

October 1, 2009
Matt O'Leary - Men's Soccer
Defenders in soccer don't get much glory. Much like offensive tackles in football, they can't really be defined by statistics. However, the impact that O'Leary and his gang of Chapman defenders have had on the Panthers' success this season is beyond measurable.

September 24, 2009
Linda Ly - Women's Volleyball
Hard to imagine that Chapman's all-time record holder in digs (she's held that title since her sophomore year) had room for improvement after her junior year. Yet, somehow is seems Ly really can be everywhere on the court. Currently Ly ranks No. 2 in all of Division III with 8.15 digs per game.

September 17, 2009
Chloe Canta - Women's Soccer
As a freshman in 2008, Canta sat patiently on the bench behind three senior goalkeepers and didn't see a single minute of playing time. Apparently she spent that time wisely. The sophomore has been a rock as Chapman's starting keeper this season, helping the Panthers to a all-time best (tie) 6-0 start.

September 9, 2009
Matt Prouty - Men's Soccer
Prouty's scoring outburst - two goals in less than five minutes - against Occidental College on Monday helped the Panthers come-from-behind to beat the Tigers in overtime. Then on Wednesday he assisted on the game winning goal to help defeat Pomona-Pitzer.

May 13, 2009
Patrick Ohail - Baseball
When the Panthers open play in the NCAA Division III West Region playoffs on Wednesday, the Chapman lineup will include senior first baseman Patrick Ohail for the 181st consecutive time. Ohail has certainly been an "iron man" in four years with Chapman. Only one player in school history has more doubles and more RBI than the senior.

May 7, 2009
Wendy Belanger - Women's Track
She broke one of the oldest school records in Chapman history when she ran the 400-meters in a time of 1:01.26 at the U.C. Irvine/Steve Scott Invitational on Sunday in the final track meet of the season for the Panthers.

April 29, 2009
Kelley Fox - Women's Tennis
She's one half of arguably the best women's doubles teams in the Division III's West Region, certainly Southern California. Fox and partner Liz Lewis reached the semifinals at last weekend's 109th Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament and lost in a tough three sets, 4-6, 7-6, 10-4 to a team from Point Loma.

April 22, 2009
Celia Huling - Women's Water Polo
The sophomore goalie has been swatting down polo shots at an unprecedented pace this season. In fact, Huling has already set single-game and single-season save records at Chapman this spring heading into the Panthers' appearance at the Western Water Polo Assocation championship tournament this weekend.

April 1, 2009
Van Pierce - Men's Golf
The junior has been at the forefront for one of the strongest seasons the men's golf team has put together in years. Pierce has been Chapman's low-score leader in all 10 rounds the team has played this season. That all culminated on Tuesday when his 1-under 35 on the back nine at Tustin Ranch helped the Panthers to a school-record 300 score and victory against Cal Lutheran University.

March 25, 2009
Michelle Pitts - Softball
In the last 11 days, the rookie catcher has raised her batting average nearly 100 points and currently leads the Panthers with a .383 mark. In the last nine games, Pitts is batting .462 (12-for-26) with four doubles.

March 18, 2009
Wayde Kitchens - Baseball
The two-time All-American is at it again. Senior RHP Wayde Kitchens tossed a four-hit shutout against No. 4-ranked Kean University (N.J.) on Saturday night for his fifth win of the season.

March 10, 2009
Sabrina Cook - Women's Water Polo
If women's water polo coach Eric Ploessel was concerned over where his offensive production might come this season with absence of two-time All-American Jennifer Manship, then Sabrina Cook was just the answer he was looking for.

February 18, 2009
Andrijana Kerkez
The senior center has grabbed twice as many rebounds as the next closest player on the team, leading the Panthers with 7.6 rebounds per game. She also ranks fourth on the team with a 8.7 points per game average.

February 12, 2009
Sean Vreeburg
Chapman's sixth man has been hitting three-pointers with great regularity this season, and in big spots at that. The senior guard is averaging almost two three-pointers per game, while playing just under 14 minutes a game off the bench.

February 4, 2009
John Semel - Baseball
If last weekend was any indication, Semel is going to have a very productive season for the Chapman baseball team. The sophomore hit .571 (8-for-14) in three games against Whittier, including a pair of doubles and a pair of homers, and had a 1.143 slugging percentage.

January 28, 2009
Sarah Snyder - Women's Diving
The junior has been Chapman's top diver in every event this season - which is the inaugural season for the Panthers' diving team. Snyder has excelled in both the 1-meter and 3-meter dives, including a second-place finish at the La Verne Invite back in November.

January 21, 2009
Lisa Horn - Women's Swimming
The freshman sprinter captured first place in the 100-yard freestyle on Saturday in a meet against Soka and Azusa Pacific and was the anchor on Chapman's 200-yard freestyle relay team that finished second. Her time in the 100 free was also a career-best 56.14.

January 14, 2009
Lauren Kamiyama - Women's Basketball
The floor general has helped the Panthers to a season-high six-game winning streak, thanks to her leadership and playmaking abilities. The senior leads Chapman with 79 assists, 4.6 assists per game and is just 10 assists shy of tying Gayle Sonoda for the all-time assists record at Chapman, currently with 386.

January 7, 2009
Kyle Wood - Men's Basketball
The junior guard scored 20 points, including five three-pointers to lead the Panthers to their eighth consecutive win 84-56 over La Sierra University on Sunday. Wood currently leads Chapman with 12.6 points per game and is shooting better than 41 percent from three-point range with 22 threes.

December 11, 2008
Justin Riley - Men's Basketball
Last weekend, Riley and the Panthers claimed the consolation championship at the Lee Fulmer Invitational in Redlands with an overtime win over Cal State East Bay. Riley earned a double-double in that game with 17 points and a career-high 14 rebounds en route to being named to the All-Tournament team.

December 3, 2008
Nicole Hayman - Women's Basketball
This has become an annual honor for Hayman, who on Sunday became just the third player in Chapman's Division III history to eclipse the 1,100 point mark for her career - in just two-plus years. The reigning DIII Independents Player of the Year is averaging over 17 points per game to lead the Panthers to a 4-3 start.

November 19, 2008
Austin McElvaney
The junior 2-meter defender has quietly compiled some very impressive statistics over the past three years and, alongside fellow juniors Alex Mulé and Colin Gasper, is one of three big reasons for the Panthers' ascent in the NCAA Division III rankings over the past three years. McElvaney leads Chapman into the Western Water Polo championships this weekend having already set school records for career assists and steals this season.

November 12, 2008
Tyler Hadzinsky - Men's Soccer
The sophomore goalkeeper recorded the lowest goals-against average of any Panther since 1983 (min. 10 games played) with a 0.62 GAA and was a big reason why the Panthers' defense set a school record with a 0.59 goals-against average this season. Hadzinsky currently ranks in the top-25 in Division III in both goals-against average and save percentage (.860).

November 6, 2008
Wes Pinkston - Football
It's hard to single out any one of Chapman's senior starting linebackers, but amongst the four, outside linebacker Wes Pinkston has done the most damage behind the opponents' line of scrimmage. The senior is tied for fourth on the team with 26 solo tackles, but nine of those tackles have been for loss of yards and five are quarterback sacks - both lead the team.

October 28, 2008
Lillian Webber - Women's Cross Country
The freshman was once again the Panthers' top runner at the Biola Invitational on Saturday with a time of 22:59.3. She has placed first or second among the Chapman women in all three races this season, including her best time of 21:37.7 at the U.C. Riverside Invitational in September.

October 21, 2008
Jill Felger - Women's Volleyball
Last week the senior became the second-leading scorer in Chapman history, reaching 1,000 kills - and then some. It started with 19 kills against Elizabethtown College on Oct. 11 which made her just the fourth player to reach 1,000 kills for her career.

October 14, 2008
Mike Christensen - Football
In his fourth game this season, the senior running back Mike Christensen ran for more yards against Whittier than he had in the previous three games combined. Not only that, Christensen's 262 rushing yards in the Panthers' 35-21 win on Saturday was more yardage than any previous running back in Chapman history - a 13-year old record set in 1995.

September 30, 2008
Stephanie Lambrakis - Women's Soccer
After spending most of last season as a defender, the junior forward has added some punch to the Chapman offense this season. Lambrakis currently leads the Panthers with five assists and ranks second on the team with three goals and 11 total points.

September 24, 2008
Colin Gasper - Men's Waterpolo
On Saturday, the junior goalie made a season-high 14 blocks in the Panthers 12-5 win over La Verne at the Cal Lutheran tournament. With his performance, he set the school's all-time saves record with 545 career blocks.

September 16, 2008
Dalton Sweaney - Men's Soccer
The Chapman University men's soccer team is off to its best start in 13 years with a 5-1 record and Dalton Sweaney has played a big role. The sophomore scored the game-winning goal with 3:36 remaining in the game in Chapman's 2-1 win over Occidental College on Friday night.

September 9, 2008
Cassidy Gayner - Women's Volleyball
The freshman outside hitter is at the forefront of a youth movement that's making an immediate impact on the Chapman volleyball program. In her first four career matches, the rookie has had 15 or more kills three times, including a high of 19 against Wheaton College (Ill.) at the Pomona-Pitzer Tournament last weekend.
