Nov. 16, 2011
I am very excited for our men's soccer and men's cross country teams that were both awarded an at-large NCAA bid. Men's soccer Head Coach Chaka Daley has built an elite program in his 12 years here, reaching the NCAA Tournament in five of the last seven years. I want to see everyone at Glay Field this Thursday, November 18 at 1:00 p.m. to cheer on the Friars when they face Dartmouth. Head Coach Ray Treacy of our men's and women's cross country teams has been a Friar for 26 years and has established one of the strongest programs in the nation, reaching the NCAA Tournament in 16 out of the last 17 seasons.
Our men's basketball team is off a 2-0 start with the last win coming on the road at Fairfield. I want to commend the Fairfield fans for giving Head Coach Ed Cooley a standing ovation in his return to their arena. Fairfield had their largest regular season crowd in their program's history and I was happy to see the record crowd showing Coach Cooley their thanks and praise.
The men's ice hockey team is off to its best start since the 2005-06 season. Already matching their conference win total from the last season, the Friars are currently in third place in the prestigious Hockey East. The team only plays at Schneider Arena two more times this semester so be sure to come out in full force to help support the Friars.
I like to keep everyone as updated as possible with our conference realignment strategy, and I say now that the situation is fluid and we are still in the negotiating process. Several high profile football and basketball programs are being talked to and a resolution is expected within a couple of weeks.
Lastly, I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. This year I will be traveling with the men's basketball team down to South Padre Island, Texas where they will be playing Iowa State and Northern Iowa. My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is going back to my hometown of West Concord, Massachusetts to my high school football game and reuniting with my teammates and friends. I hope you all enjoy the holiday!
