Outfielder Justin Caña led No. 6 Cal Lutheran to a 4-1 week in Arizona at the Tucson Tournament. The sophomore went 13-for-25 for a .520 batting average that included four doubles as he recorded four RBIs and scored six times. Cal Lutheran’s leadoff man stole a base and went 5-for-7 with a double, four runs scored and an RBI during a 20-5 victory over UW-Superior on Sunday. Caña was also outstanding in the outfield, recording 10 putouts that featured three diving catches without an error for a perfect fielding percentage.

Allie Hadley

Track & Field

Allie Hadley helped lead Cal Lutheran to a first place finish at the Point Loma Nazarene University Invitational this past weekend after capturing the javelin event in a record throw. The sophomore from Bothell, Wash. improved her personal best on the final throw of the meet when she recorded a mark of 46.98 meters, nearly four more than second place. Hadley’s record throw now puts her in second on the all-time list at CLU and she trails former National Champion Britlyn Garrett’s all-time mark of 47.14 meters by just .16.

Kelly Shotwell


Kelly Shotwell guided Cal Lutheran to its first-ever team tournament title as she tied for first place at the Inaugural CLU Regals Invite this past weekend. Shotwell tied with Jen Kim of Pomona-Pitzer for the top individual score as both finished with a total of 158 (+14). The freshman jumped up the leaderboard after being the only player in the field to shoot in the 70s as she shot a 77 during the final round. The freshman also had the shot of the day on the par-3 fifth when she nearly had an ace after her tee-shot took once bounce before hitting the flagstick and rolling less than a foot away.
