It’s Nov. 13, 2019. Here’s what’s been going on lately in Saint Anselm College sports.
The weekend held mixed results for the Hawks, with a four-set win against Saint Rose on Friday and a three-set loss against LeMoyne on Saturday.
In the Friday contest, Saint Anselm needed an extra point to win the final set, but ultimately got the win thanks in large part to 16 kills from junior Jordan Schamp (Plymouth, Mich.) and 13 kills from senior Catie McCarthy (Warrenton, Va.).
On Saturday, senior Madison Sollows (Barnstable, Mass.) led the squad with 10 kills as the Hawks came within two points of winning the first two sets before falling by ten points in the final set.
Saint Anselm (18-9, 8-3 Northeast-10) will finish the regular season with contests against American International and Adelphi on Friday and Saturday.
The women’s cross country team finished fifth out of 23 teams in the NCAA Division II East Region Championships on Saturday in Philadelphia.
Freshman Christine Toy (Standish, Maine) had a 6k time of 23:01.9, 13th best out of 162 competitors.
The men’s team finished 14th out of 26 teams in the event, led by junior Jordan Cook (Biddeford, Maine) with a 10k time of 34:49.5, good for 71st place.
On Tuesday, recent graduate Tim Guers signed a contract with the Ringwood Hawks of National Basketball League in Australia.
Guers was a two-time NABC All-America selection, won the Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Year award twice and was the Most Outstanding Player of the 2019 NCAA Division II East Regional Tournament.
