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 – Dustin Doty, Wagner Men’s Lax
— Dustin Doty (@DustinDoty) September 16, 2013
This former Wagner long-stick midfielder’s tweet is another example of #NECpride. Following Doty’s well wishes, five players from NEC programs were taken in the 2013 National Lacrosse League Draft.
Tweet No. 4 – Kristin Mraz, Bryant WBB Alumna
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.
— Kristin Mraz (@KristinMraz) September 20, 2013
This former Bulldog makes our list after unleashing this bit of philosophical genius. The former guard knows a thing, or two, about taking “big steps.” A junior on the first-ever Bryant women’s basketball team to play a full Division I schedule (2008-09), Mraz helped Bryant take a HUGE step from the Division II ranks and into the Northeast Conference.
Tweet No. 3 – Susan Ronis, Wagner Cheer Team
— My Name Is Not Susan (@SusanRonis) September 20, 2013
This Wagner cheerleader shows her school spirit in the tweet above. If she was that excited about her appearance on WagnerAthletics.com, then imagine what her reaction will be like when Susan finds out her tweet was featured on the Overtime! Blog.
Tweet No. 2 – Robert Morris Men’s Basketball
— RMU Men’s Basketball (@RMUMBasketball) September 20, 2013
Thanks to the RMU hoops Twitter account for this genuinely awesome #Flashback. The program in the photo is such a throwback that is was printed before the Northeast Conference even existed. Having been a junior college only a few years earlier, the Robert Morris Colonials celebrated their fifth season of varsity basketball during the 1980-81 academic year. One year later, Robert Morris became a charter member of the ECAC Metro Conference (the modern-day NEC). That first season in the NEC was a special one and you can read about it here.
Tweet No. 1 – Bryant Student-Athlete Advisory Committee
— Bryant S.A.A.C (@BryantSAAC) September 16, 2013
Talk about “being true to your school!” These Bryant fans gave new meaning to showing your allegiance. The best way to describe the photo above is #Awesome.
