Head Coach Bob Segave guided the team to a sixth-place finish in the East Coast Conference. The team capped off a solid season with its third NCCAA National Championship tournament appearance in the past four years. Forward Marissa Sell ’15, who averaged 13 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, was named NCCAA East Region Player of the Year in addition to earning NCCAA All-American First Team honors.
The Redhawks capped off an up-and-down season with a trip to the competitive NCCAA National Championship tournament. Forward Devin Grimes ’13 earned NCCAA All-American Honorable Mention last week, highlighting the Redhawks’ postseason accolades. Grimes was stellar this season, averaging a double-double in points and rebounds. The senior ended the season with averages of 14.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. In addition to earning All-American honors, Grimes was selected to the NCCAA East Region First Team.
In just their second season in program history, the Redhawks finished with a respectable 7-9 record. Perhaps the most notable highlight of the season came on April 6 as the team picked up its first-ever East Coast Conference win against the University of Bridgeport at home. Loren Dunn ’16 was a standout in her debut season, earning ECC Rookie of the Year honors after racking up 56 goals in just 16 games.
Head Coach Rocky Delfino put together a challenging schedule for his squad for their second season and first in the challenging East Coast Conference. The Redhawks responded with solid efforts as they faced a total of nine nationally ranked teams, including 2013 NCAA Division II National Championship game participants Mercyhurst University and Le Moyne College.
The team logged an impressive 18-7 overall record while finishing second in the East Coast Conference standings this season. Head Coach Tom Linhart guided the Redhawks to their second consecutive trip to the NCCAA National Championships as Charles Farres ’16 was named to the NCCAA All-American First Team. Farres posted a combined record of 45-13 in the regular season (playing at third singles and first doubles).
