Hope this post finds you well now, and for the next few weeks seeing as this is going to be the last post until after Christmas. This past week was a very busy yet exciting one to say the least. Tuesday we had a phenomenal win over WPI on their home court, a team we have not beaten for a few years now, it was awesome; the team played and hard. Yesterday, (Friday) we had a BIG game against #22 ranked (that's in the nation) Babson College, feeling fired up from our win on Tuesday we were ready to pull out one of the biggest upsets in NEWMAC play. It was also a big day too for our Heller's Angels friends, they came to support us, play at halftime, and then enjoy a pizza party afterwords. A few great photos are shown below:

We always have such a good time with them and can't wait to hang out with them again. Which reminds me, in order to help make that happen please remember to vote for us in the NCAA poll mentioned last post, here's the link again: http://www.ncaa.org/D3SpecialOlympics ... spread the news to family, friends, distant relatives, your aunts and uncles who you aren't quite sure if they're related to you or not.

Back to talking about Babson, what a game. We had a phenomenal crowd as we hosted our first ever Blue Out game, we gave out free t-shirts to the first 150 to arrive and everyone there was so blue and enthused which definitely helped us out. Here are some pictures courtesy of once again John Sutyak and the second one shown is by photographer Keith Nordstrom:
With the crowd behind us and the adrenaline coursing through our veins we gave Babson one heck of a fight. We ended up losing but throughout the whole game we played so well. So well that I would even go out on a limb and say that this was one of Babson's closest NEWMAC games in quite a while. Although the cards didn't fall in our favor, it just proved to us that we are capable of beating them the next time we meet, I couldn't be more proud of my team. With that being said, that just about wraps up my last post of fall semester, when we come back we will be practicing hard and preparing for our York (PA) tournament the weekend after Christmas where we take on the York team who is ranked 14th in the nation; it is also a game promoting cancer awareness and we will be sporting some pretty cool hot pink elite socks courtesy of coach. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season. Until next time...
