Since my last post we have had a very busy week. We opened up our season against Roger Williams University on the road this past Thursday. Although the turnout was not in our favor, it gave us fire going into the practice and the weekend ahead. Having a great practice on Friday we were looking forward to hosting our Cheryl Warren-Powers Tournament where we played Lesley in the first game on Saturday. Here are a few photos from the weekend:

We even had the Norton Travel team that we mentored cheering us on!
Overall, Saturday was a huge success. We had a fantastic crowd full of alums, family, and school supporters, along with several local basketball teams who came to cheer us on (can't forget the lion). We raised a good amount of money for the cause being promoted and we played well, throughout the entire team, against Lesley to secure the win and send us into the championship game on Sunday. Today (Sunday) we played against Suny Oneonta from New York State. We were not able to pull out a victory, a victory that should have been ours, but we took it as a learning experience to not want to feel like that again. With that burning sensation in our stomachs, we head into this weeks practices before our final non-conference game against Mt. Ida on Sunday, and after that comes NEWMAC play. On behalf of the team, I want to thank those who came out and supported us in any way that they could this weekend, and we look forward to working hard and getting better before Mt. Ida. I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving, until next time...
