Highlights from a record-breaking season


For the Lords soccer team, a remarkable run ended in the NCAA Division III tournament’s quarterfinal round. The Lords defeated their first three tournament opponents (Maryville, Lynchburg and Trinity) by a combined 9-1 score, but a heart-wrenching, double-overtime 1-0 loss to Tufts University capped the campaign.

The team went 20-3-0 and established the program’s single-season record for wins. Goalkeeper Sam Clougher ’17 was named an Academic All-American and finished his career as Kenyon’s all-time leader in shutouts (45).


John Rinka ’70 was inducted into the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame as a member of the inaugural class. Rinka was a three-time All-American who scored a Kenyon-record 3,251 career points. During his four-year career, he averaged 32.9 points per game, a mark that still ranks sixth all-time among all NCAA players.


The Ladies field hockey team captured its fourth conference tournament title and registered a 2-1 win at Elizabethtown College in the NCAA tournament before being eliminated by No. 2-ranked Salisbury University. Fifth-year head coach Jacque DeMarco became the program’s all-time leader in wins with a 72-30 record.
