Huntington, Ind.— The Huntington College athletics department announced its Athletes of the Week for the week of February 16-22, 2004. Women’s basketball senior Lane Allen and men’s track senior Jonathan Doyle earned the honors for their outstanding efforts during the week.


Lane Allen

Lane Allen, a chemistry major from Richmond, Ind. (Centerville High School), helped lead the Foresters to a 1-1 record for the week. Allen began the week scoring 16 points and grabbing six rebounds in Huntington’s 64-55 road win over Taylor University. Allen went 6-10 from the field and 4-4 from the line in the game. On Saturday’s Senior Recognition Day, Allen scored the Foresters’ first 16 points of the game to help Huntington keep pace with the NAIA Division II 21st-ranked Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats. She finished with 20 points in the game and a game-high nine rebounds. The Foresters concluded regular season play with a 16-12 record and finished 7-7 in the conference.

Jonathan Doyle, an exercise science major from Boardman, Ohio (Boardman High School), had an outstanding individual performance at the Foresters’ Frozen Forest Indoor Track Invitational.
