The nationally-ranked men’s and women’s teams both took wins on Wednesday against Saint Michael’s in what was the first Northeast-10 game for each team.

In the women’s contest, the ninth-ranked Hawks won 78-62 to rise to 3-0 on the season.

Senior Shannon Ryan (Plattsburgh, N.Y.) had career-highs in points (31) and rebounds (21), finishing the game with over 1,200 career points and 750 career rebounds. Ryan now stands in 12th place all-time in program history in points, passing Liz Pelletier ’87 and eighth all-time in rebounds, passing Kaila Duarte ’17.

Junior Peyton Steinman (Pittsfield, Mass) had 16 points to put her above 700 during her Saint Anselm career.

On the men’s side, the 31 points of freshman Tyler Arbuckle (Bristol, Conn.) helped the 12th-ranked Hawks to a 93-72 victory, also placing them at 3-0.

Despite holding a lead of just one point shortly before the half, the Hawks’ offense accelerated in the second half, with four players other than Arbuckle reaching double digits in scoring.

Ice Hockey

Saint Anselm had a mixed-gender day on the ice on Friday, but unlike the hardwood doubleheader, here the Hawks had mixed results.

In the women’s game, the Hawks got another win against Saint Michael’s, this one a 6-0 victory.

Junior Katy Meehan (Quincy, Mass.) and senior Kaley Campbell (Colchester, Vt.) both had two goals, with senior Megan Klaus (State College, Pa.) and sophomore Erin Meyers (Saint Paul, Minn.) had the other two goals.

Klaus and Meehan scored on two of the Hawks’ four power plays, outshooting the Purple Knights, 49-16.

Saint Anselm (7-3, 6-3 New England Women’s Hockey Association) plays Saint Michael’s again today at 1 p.m.

The men found a 3-3 draw at Stonehill. Freshman Andrew Andary (Macomb, Mich.) put the game into overtime, scoring a goal with just over a minute left in regulation.

Junior Matt Chisholm (Scituate, Mass.) and junior John Femia (Canton, Mass.) had the other Hawks’ goals.

Saint Anselm (2-2-1, 1-0-1 Northeast-10) play Stonehill again in Foxboro, Mass. Today at 5:10 p.m.

Women’s Volleyball

Senior Catie McCarthy (Warrenton, Va.) led the Hawks in a five-set victory over American International on Friday.

McCarthy had 12 kills on 46 attempts, putting her just two kills away from second-place all-time in program history.

The Hawks (19-9, 9-3 Northeast-10) return to action today for their final matchup of the regular season against Adelphi. Saint Anselm will be honoring three seniors prior to the match.
