Athletes of the Week: James Heskett and Jamie Lovette

James Heskett ’19
Men’s basketball
Cincinnati, Ohio

“James has been a pleasure to watch develop this season. His versatility, size and unique skill level makes him a dynamic player on both offense and defense. As his confidence and role has increased the last couple of seasons, James has started to play with the consistency and assertiveness that make him one of the best players in our region.”

-Head Coach Kevin App

 

In the game against Amherst, Heskett shot the game-winning 3-pointer with only 14 seconds left in the game. Heskett has also been the team’s leading scorer in the past five games.

 

Jamie Lovette ’21
Men’s swimming and diving
Ithaca, N.Y.

“Jamie has done some really good things so far this year.  His 200 freestyles have been very consistent and improving and he had a nice mile last week as well. He’s shown some toughness as well; this week’s win in the 200 free certainly displayed that.  It is obviously early in his career, so hopefully there is lots more good stuff to come.”

-Head Coach Steve Kuster

 

Jamie Lovette kept his four-meet winning streak in the 200 freestyle. He swam a season-best of 1:41.78, which is also the fastest time in the NESCAC this year.
