Sean Harman

Sean Harman tallied a career high 27-points – 24 in the first half – to lead #16 Westmont Men’s Basketball (17-5, 6-3 GSAC) to a 106-83 Golden State Athletic Conference win over the Mustangs of The Master’s College (4-14, 1-9). Harman made 10 of 12 from the floor including six of seven from beyond the arc.

“Sean and I had a good meeting earlier in the week. The way things were going, we didn’t know if Cory (Blau) was going to be available tonight,” explained Westmont head coach John Moore. “And with Hayden Anderson out, Sean was going to have to take on more of the scoring load. He is capable.”

Blau was questionable up until game time because of an injury experienced during the Vanguard game.

“Sean is a lot like Cory in terms of his confidence and his competitiveness. He is sometimes just a little too careful. I don’t want him to be careful. – I want him to be assertive.”

With two double-doubles by sophomore Lauren McCoy (17 points and 17 rebounds) and junior Aysia Shellmire (15 points and 10 rebounds) and an outstanding 20 points by senior Krissy Karr, #2 Westmont Women’s Basketball (19-3, 8-1) earned a 66-59 Golden State Athletic Conference victory over #10 The Master’s College (19-3, 9-1). This was The Master’s College first GSAC loss.

After a close first half, the Warriors found themselves down 26-28 going into the third quarter.

Two minutes and twenty seconds into the third quarter, the Warriors went on a vital eight-point run to take a seven point lead (39-32) – a lead that they would sustain for the remainder of the game. This run began with a jump shot by Shellmire, assisted by junior Aimee Brakken; junior Cora Chan added a layup; and McCoy followed with back-to-back layups. The Warrior’s outscored the Master’s 22-13 in the third quarter.

The Mustangs answered by scoring four points within the first minute of the fourth quarter to close the gap to only four points (44-48). The Warriors silenced this momentum when they followed with a six-point run to gain a 10-point lead. McCoy had a jump shot and the subsequent free-throw, and Karr notched a three-pointer.

Ninth ranked Westmont Women’s Tennis fell to the Division I Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Mustangs 7-0 in their season opener.

In singles play, the Mustangs prevailed in all six matchups: Emily Gibbens defeated Ines Ccostamagna 6-2, 6-1; Oleynik defeated Isabel Lee 6-1, 6-1; Bryn Bacharach defeated Haley Strandness 6-3, 6-2; Molly Reed defeated Zarina Huber 7-5, 6-0; Dane Joubert defeated Fernanda Rivera; and Abigail Bacharach defeated Chloe Clement 6-0, 6-1.

“Singles was tough all around as we were outplayed in most matches,” explained head coach Kendyll McManigal. “The most competitive were Haley playing at number three and Zarina at number four. Each of their first sets was a battle; however Cal Poly gained control in each of the second sets.”

In doubles play the Mustangs won the number two and three matchups: Oleynik and Bryn Bacharach defeated Strandness and Lee 6-3; and Abigail Bacharach and Reed triumphed over Celement and Rivera 6-0.
