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 – Alex DiMichele, Robert Morris Football alumnus
— Alex DiMichele (@Coach_DiMichele) October 24, 2013
Robert Morris defensive coordinator Scott Farison celebrated his birthday on Thursday, and one of the top defensive players Farison has ever coached fired off this congratulatory tweet. Alex DiMichele, who won the 2010 NEC Defensive Player of the Year award while helping RMU to a conference championship, is now colleagues with Farison. DiMichele is currently a graduate assistant defensive line coach for Robert Morris, which visits Wagner on Saturday.
Tweet No. 4 – Phyllis Michalski, Saint Francis U supporter
— Phyllis Michalski (@MicPhyl) October 25, 2013
It’s safe to say that this Red Flash fan is fired up for another season of swimming. Four-time defending NEC champion Saint Francis opens its home schedule on Saturday, October 26 with a dual meet against A-10 member Duquesne. It’s more than just the home opener, too. The Flash will celebrate its annual “Think Pink” event around the meet. All proceeds raised by the swim team will be donated to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center at the Windber Medical Center.
Tweet No. 3 – Tupper the Bulldog
— BryantMascot Tupper® (@BryantTuppy) October 25, 2013
Apparently, Tupper is more than just a cute face. Bryant’s bulldog mascot is also good with a camera. Thanks for this snapshot of Bryant’s picturesque campus. Hopefully the weather stays beautiful because there is a ton of NEC action scheduled in Smithfield this weekend, including a key women’s soccer contest on Friday afternoon and a marquee #NECFB matchup on Saturday.
Tweet No. 2 – Madison Lukosius, LIU Brooklyn bowler
I've done a total of 950 crunches today….. 😳

The NCAA bowling season has begun, and this rookie Blackbird is putting in work. When all 7 teams in your conference are ranked in the National Top 20, there is no time for slacking.
Tweet No. 1 – Torrie Childs, Fairleigh Dickinson WBB alumnae
I had sooo much fun visiting my FDU fam 😘 I will b back soon
— Torrie Childs♎ (@TorrieBuzzz) October 23, 2013
This former FDU baller paid a post-graduate trip to Teaneck this week, and apparently felt right at home in her old stomping grounds. The tweet proves that you can take a Knight out of Teaneck, but you can’t take the Teaneck out of a Knight. #uKnighted
