ORANGE, Calif. – Senior Jaryn Fajardo earned her second SCIAC Defensive Athlete of the Week award after putting up some big numbers in a week where the Panthers went 1-1 in SCIAC play.

The guard averaged 6.5 rebounds per game and six steals per game, with a team-high eight steals in Chapman's narrow 58-55 loss to Cal Lutheran. Fajardo also tallied five assists in both games to go along with her 21 points against Cal Lutheran and 19 points against Redlands.

The Torrance native led the push for the Panthers in their victory over the Bulldogs, scoring 15 of her 19 points in the second half.

This is Fajardo's third SCIAC weekly award in less than a month and her second Defensive Athlete of the Week recognition.
