This week’s featured athlete is Piper Kalthoff. Piper is junior guard on the CCC women’s basketball team, originally from Del City, Oklahoma. She transferred into the Tiger program this season from Redlands Community College.
Last week in a game against the Barclay College, she set a new CCC single game scoring record when she poured in 43 points in the team’s 101-35 victory over the Bears. Because of that performance she was named A.I.I Conference Athlete of the Week, and also NCCAA National Player of the Week. For the year, Piper leads the Tigers in scoring with a 19.56 ppg average and is shooting nearly 40% from the floor. She has scored in double figures in 7 of the 9 games so far this season.
When she is not playing basketball, she enjoys shopping, working out, and listening to music. Her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all this through he who gives me strength.”
