Fifth year player Caitlin Sparks became the new all-time scoring leader for Arcadia Women’s Basketball during this Saturday’s 57-38 loss to Commonwealth Conference opponent Lycoming College at Lamade Gymnasium in Williamsport.  Sparks entered the game needing 13 points and set the new program record (1297 points) on the free throw line with 2:11 remaining in the game, as she sunk the front end of a one-and-one chance to displace 2007 Arcadia graduate Katie Lynch, who held the previous mark of 1296.  For the week, Sparks averaged 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, both above her season averages (13.9ppg/8.1 rpg) while her 27 steals leads the squad.

Junior gaurd Damien Palantino led his team in a tough winless week in Commonwealth play, providing many offensive sparks to keep the Knights in contention against strong teams in Widener and Lycoming.  Averaging 13.1 points per game, Palantino poured in 21 at home in a 68-62 loss against conference leader Widener before hanging a team high 15 on Lycoming in a unsettling 82-63 loss in Williamsport.  He shot the lights out with a team high 63% average from the floor, 50% from beyond the arc, and 86% from the charity stripe while adding 4 steals and dishing out 3 assists and surpassed senior Bobby Mulholland(12.1 ppg) as the season scoring leader.
