Chatham-Kent will play host to another incredible sporting event this fall, as the Iowa State Cyclones will host the Eastern Michigan Eagles in an NCAA Division I basketball game in Chatham.

Iowa State features Chatham’s Bridget Carleton, a member of Canada’s National Women’s team, who is entering her senior season with Iowa State. Carleton was also an honourable mention All-American last year.

“I am so excited and grateful to be able to play a game in Chatham this year,” said Carleton of the opportunity to play in her hometown. “I haven’t played a game in Chatham since high school so it will be such a special experience to be able to play in front of my family and friends one more time with my Iowa State team. Ames, Iowa has truly been a home away from home for the last 3 years and I can’t wait to bring my Cyclone family to my hometown.”

“I am very excited about our non-conference schedule for our team and fans,” head coach Bill Fennelly said in a school news release. “Playing in the Preseason WNIT for the first time is a great way to start the season for this team. Overall the schedule is challenging in every way so we will have to be ready to play every night.”

The game will take place November 21 at the St. Clair Health Plex in Chatham.
