The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level.

Dylan Kilgour (Crescenta Valley High, 2012) sophomore guard, Macalester College men's basketball: Just four games into the season and Kilgour has already been a model of consistency for the Scots.

While Macalester has had difficulty piling up victories, Kilgour has done his part on offense. He's scored at least 10 points in each contest with his biggest performance coming Saturday in a nonconference road game against Lake Forest.


Kilgour had a career-high 40 points, including 27 from three-point territory, to lead the Scots to a 92-89 triple-overtime win. He made 14 of 20 shots from the floor to help the Scots earn their first victory of the season.

Kilgour eclipsed his previous-best mark of 23 points, set last season. It marked the most points in a game by a Macalester player since Erik Jackson had 37 in 2005, according to the college's website.

He then finished with 20 points and four assists in Macalester's 104-82 nonconference home loss against Lakeland. Kilgour collected 10 points and three assists Tuesday in the Scots' 79-74 nonconference defeat against Crown.

He's averaging a team-best 21 points per game.

Macalester will next compete against Concordia-Moorhead in a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference contest on Wednesday.

Claire Kostelnik (Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, 2013) freshman defender, St. Mary's College of Maryland women's soccer: Kostelnik made an instant impact for St. Mary's, playing defense and seeing action in all 19 games for the Seahawks.

On Nov. 13, the 2013 All-Capital Athletic Conference team was released and Kostelnik was recognized on the second team. She was one of four Seahawks and one of six freshmen on the all-conference teams.

Kostelnik, a midfielder, started in 17 games and was a standout defensively for a team that allowed 1.6 goals a match and notched six shutouts.

St. Mary's finished the season at 7-9-3 and 6-2 in the Capital Athletic Conference. The Seahawks ended their season on Nov. 2 with a 1-0 loss to Mary Washington in the opening round of the conference tournament.

Katie Johnson (Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, 2012) sophomore forward, USC women's soccer: A former All-Area, All-CIF and All-Mission League standout, Johnson completed her second season with the Trojans.

Johnson played all 20 games in a trying season in which USC went 8-10-2 and 3-7-1 in the Pacific 12 Conference.
