Hope everyone is doing well. This week was an exciting and busy week all the same with our conference opener against Coast Guard on Wednesday and playing at Smith yesterday; both being on the road. With two long bus rides ahead of us we were ready for NEWMAC play to start. On Wednesday we beat Coast Guard for our first in conference win but unfortunately Smith did not go that way. Now knowing what we have to work on in practice we're getting our mind geared toward WPI on Tuesday and then after that our culminating semester game against Babson on Friday. In addition to our Babson game on Friday, that game will be dedicated as a "Blue Out" which means everyone should come and support us wearing all blue, and the first 150 people attending will receive a free t-shirt; who doesn't like free stuff? Should be a fun time!
On another note I would like to mention, and very happily at that, the our basketball team has been nominated by the NCAA to be put in the running for the top Special Olympics Spotlight for December.

Amongst all of this, finals week is just around the corner so I'm off to get some work done before practice. Until next time...
