The Overtime! Weekly ‘Twitter Take Five’

Following your favorite NEC athlete or sportswriter on Twitter is an enjoyable experience, but can also become an overwhelming one.

With so many people to follow and so much information to digest, it isn’t always easy to manage. Hence, the Overtime! Blog’s Twitter Take Five, a new weekly feature that selects five of the most intriguing/significant Tweets from across the NEC and presents them to our fans right here on the Official Blog of the Northeast Conference.

NOTE: This week’s edition contains a heavy Mount St. Mary’s presence hence a special Overtime! Blog shoutout to all of the Tweeting Mounties in Emmitsburg.



Tweet No. 5 – Mike McFadden, Power Forward, Robert Morris MBB


The above tweet has little relevance to the NEC except for the fact that it was sent out by a current Robert Morris post player.  Still, considering a number of Overtime! Blog staffers share Mike McFadden’s sentiment, it made this week’s list of Top Tweets.  More Red Please!


Tweet No. 4 – Daniel Paulling, Writer, Hanover Evening Sun


Mount St. Mary’s men’s basketball has won three in a row under first-year coach Jamion Christian.  Paulling’s article points to the contributions of Sam Prescott and Rashad Whack during the Mount’s current surge.  You can read the whole story here:  Transfers bring new energy to Mount St. Mary’s men’s basketball team


Tweet No. 3 – Ashley DeCruise, Mount St. Mary’s Alumnae


It’s great to see this former Northeast Conference 200m champion is still pursuing her passion on the track.  DeCruise is also a scholastic track & field coach, sharing her love of the sport with the younger generation.


Tweet No. 2 – Irma Garcia, Athletic Director, St. Francis Brooklyn


The Terriers have a new home.  While the school remains on Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights, its men’s soccer team is moving to the newly-completed Brooklyn Bridge Park.  St. Francis Brooklyn athletic director Irma Garcia was all smiles when New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially opened the park at Pier 5 on December 13 with numerous Terriers in attendance.  Read more about the Terriers’ new home field.


Tweet No. 1 — Coby Rosemier-Gussio, Decathlete, Mount St. Mary’s


This second-year Mountaineer has clearly chosen the latter.  Not sure if his dreams included winning the NEC Most Outstanding Rookie Performer award at both the 2012 indoor and outdoor championship meets, but that is what he did.  It appears as if he is working toward more great things in 2013.
