It’s Nov. 16, 2019. Here’s what’s been going on lately in Southern New Hampshire University sports.

Women’s Basketball

The Penmen won on the road against American International on Wednesday, 83-70.

Junior Gyanna Russell (East Hampton, Conn.) had a career-high 20 points, with freshman Adriana Timberlake (Braintree, Mass.) close behind with 15 points.

SNHU led, 65-63, with just over eight minutes to go in the fourth quarter when a three-point play from Russell sparked a 15-4 run that opened an 80-67 advantage for the Penmen with 2:41 remaining.

The Penmen (2-1, 1-0 Northeast-10) are back in action Sunday, Nov. 17 (1 p.m.) when they play host to the College of Staten Island at the Stan Spirou Field House.

Men’s Ice Hockey

On Friday, the first half of a home-and-home with Post ended with a 5-3 win for the Penmen.

Freshman George Thurston (Plymouth, Mass.) opened scoring with a power-play goal 2:53 into the contest, with SNHU opening up a 3-1 lead by the first intermission. The two teams each scored two goals apiece in the second period, with no scoring in the third period.

Senior Brett Strawn (Wareham, Mass.) and junior Kyle Galloway (Sugar Hill, Ga.) had the other two first-period goals. Sophomore Travis Quigley (North Babylon, N.Y.) and sophomore Joe Fiorino (Willow Grove, Pa.) had the second-period goals.

With the win, SNHU is now 4-1-0 overall, and 2-0-0 in Northeast-10 play.

The two teams meet up again at the Ice Den in Hooksett today at 4:15 p.m.

Women’s Soccer

Junior Allyson Patterson (Seekonk, Mass.) was recently chosen for the Academic All-District Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Patterson, a secondary mathematics major with a 3.75 GPA, was recognized with a Northeast-10 All-Conference First Team selection. Patterson, the Oct. 21 NE10 Player of the Week, has started all 16 contests and had 10 goals and five assists over the season.

She led the team in goals and had either a goal or an assist in 13 matches this season, including nine straight from Sept. 18-Oct. 19. Patterson, who received an All-Rookie nod in 2017, is tied for third in the league in both goal and points, and tied for seventh in assists.

The 10-6-1 Penmen, who earned the No. 5 seed in the Northeast-10 Championship, but bowed out in the first round, are awaiting word on a potential at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament.
