Stevenson Women’s Basketball, Women’s Ice Hockey Capture Postseason Championships

March 7, 2016 7 AM

Sunday, March 6, was a memorable day for Stevenson University Athletics.

A little before 4 p.m., senior Caitlin Roy stood at the foul line, her two free throws securing a 73-70 win over Washington & Jefferson for Stevenson women’s basketball’s first ECAC South Championship.

About three hours later, senior Jessie Capanelli’s goal in sudden-death double overtime earned Stevenson women’s ice hockey a 2-1 victory over Endicott in the inaugural Colonial Hockey Conference championship.

History made. So proud of all this team has done together!

The championship wins capped off productive seasons for both teams. After making the NCAA D-III tournament a year ago, women’s basketball overcame a sluggish start to finish 17-10 on the year. Women’s ice hockey enjoyed its best season as a program, posting a final record of 23-3-1 and ending the year on a 12-game winning streak.
