Defiance Student-Athletes of the Week

Basketball player Davontae Kinnie and thrower Brooke Waidelich have been named Defiance College Student-Athlete of the Week for their performances last week.

Freshman Davontae Kinnie (Ft. Wayne, Ind./Northside) led the Yellow Jackets with 19 points and nine assists in DC's 79-75 HCAC victory over Manchester (Ind.) on Monday. After a seven-point performance in a loss to Wilmington, Kinnie put up 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go along with five assists and five steals in Defiance's 77-65 loss to Rose-Hulman (Ind.) on Saturday afternoon. The Yellow Jackets come back to action on Saturday, Dec. 9 as they begin a six-game homestand with a amtchup against Franklin (Ind.) College.

Senior Brooke Waidelich (Pettisville) began her 2017-18 season on the right foot, throwing a personal best of 14.90 meters in the weight throw, good enough for third on the all-time individual performance list, and good enough to bring home first place in the Defiance College Ice Breaker. Waidelich also placed second in the shot put with a toss of 10.85 meters. DC will take a break for the holidays and return to action following Winter Break for the Northwest Ohio Invitational at the University of Findlay.
