Don't look now, but the Stags' women's basketball team is starting to play like a contender. With back to back buzzer-beating thrillers by two of their senior captains, the Stags have climbed all the way to the .500 mark in MAAC play. In what could have been promoted as the undercard to the men's game against Niagara on Saturday afternoon, Cathy Dash ignited a wild celebration on the court and in the stands when she banked home the game winner to defeat Siena 55-54.
It was the moment everyone had waited for. After being the hero last Thursday night with a buzzer-beating floater that sunk Marist and pushed the Stags' men's basketball team to within a half-game of first place in the MAAC, junior guard Terrance Todd handled the ball on the right sideline, heading towards the hoop with his team trailing first place Niagra 76-74.
The men and women's tennis teams have hit the courts and are looking to build off last year's success. The men have gone 2-1 so far this season, defeating Queens College and Holy Cross, yet falling to Boston University this past weekend. "While I believe we are much improved from last year, the conference is going to be so challenging that we really have to use our non-conference schedule and practice time to make another leap forward over the next two months," said Coach Jeff Wyshner.
To the Editor: I would appreciate an opportunity to respond to Mr. Teti's question. He wanted to know if I ever heard about the separation of church and state. Mr. Teti, I do realize the importance of the separation of church and state. I also do not want my religious convictions mixed with politics.
