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.
Tweet No. 5 – Wagner Women’s Lacrosse
— Wagner W Lacrosse (@WagnerWLax) September 6, 2013
The quote won’t exactly go down as one of the best in NEC history, but Wagner women’s lacrosse deserves some credit for their enthusiasm. The Seahawks will spend the fall season becoming acclimated with new head coach Liz Frisoli, a Holy Cross graduate who takes over a program that went 6-11 last year. Frisoli’s first regular season game as a Division I head coach will come February 15, 2014 at Lehigh.
Tweet No. 4 – Justine Miller, Mount St. Mary’s Alumna
— Justine Miller (@justinebraith) September 5, 2013
The basketball court in Knott Arena is receiving a makeover. Thanks to this former Mount MBB student manager for sharing this photo of the work in progress. Like Justine, we here at Overtime! are looking forward to the finished product. Slated to host Davidson on Nov. 12, the Mount women’s hoops team will be the first team to play a regular season game on the floor. The men’s home opener is set for Nov. 23 against American.
Tweet No. 3 – Saint Francis Swimming
— Red Flash Swimming (@SFUswim) September 5, 2013
By the looks of the photo, the four-time defending NEC champions are ready to jump right into a new season. Although the NEC Championships are not until February, the Red Flash will be back in action next month. Saint Francis opens the regular season with a dual meet at NEC rival Mount St. Mary’s on Oct. 12.
Tweet No. 2 – Becca Fischer, Fairleigh Dickinson bowling
— Becca Fischer (@beccfisch) September 5, 2013
At first glance, it appeared as if Fischer, the 2013 NEC Bowling Rookie of the Year, was retweeting an advertisement from Bed, Bath & Beyond. As it turns out, she just wanted to show off the awesome NEC blanket that is neatly placed on the futon.
Tweet No. 1 – Gordon Hill (Sacred Heart) & Sean Brady (Duquesne), NEC football players
— Sean Brady (@SPBrady3) September 5, 2013
Here’s evidence that NEC football is more than just a game. It’s a fraternity of young men who carry great respect for one another. Gordon Hill and Sean Brady show what class and #NECpride are all about.
