Claire Donnelly ’17 stands head and shoulders above most of the rest of her class at CMC – literally.
At 6 feet tall, Donnelly has played center for the CMS Athenas women's basketball team since her freshman year at CMC. The Athenas have won the conference championship and played in the postseason three years in a row. Last year, Donnelly led the conference in blocked shots and the team in field-goal percentage. What’s more, she comes by that talent naturally.
Teammates, friends, family, coaches, Hall of Fame members, and numerous others from the three-college Claremont McKenna-Harvey Mudd-Scripps Colleges community turned out in force for the CMS Alumni Association Athletics Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony, to celebrate the addition of four new members. The ceremony is available to watch in full.
Nearly 1,000 members of the Claremont McKenna College community gathered for the Roberts Pavilion Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Sept. 30, a day of celebration several years in the making. CMC’s plan for a campus fitness, athletics, and events center began over a decade ago as a possible renovation of the venerable Ducey Gymnasium.
