Nyack's Women Warriors clinched the 2009-2010 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) basketball title this past weekend, finishing with a score of 45-43 over Holy Family University. The two teams will represent the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference at the National Collegiate Athletic Conference (NCAA) Division II Women's Basketball East Region Tournament this week. No. 8 Nyack will play No. 1 seed and regional host, Franklin Pierce University, on Friday, March 12 at Fitchburg State College in Fitchburg, MA.
Says Head Coach, Josh Thompson, "I'm so proud of my team. This whole season is a testimony of what God can do in and through each one of us when we seek Him first and give Him all the glory. The thing that excites me the most is seeing how God has worked in the hearts of each player and each coach and drawn us closer to Him and to each other. We are all very excited about playing in the NCAA tournament (Nyack's first team ever) and representing Nyack College on the national stage! God is good!"
Congratulations to Josh Thompson who was named Coach of the Year and to Jasmine Minter, who was named the Tournament's Most Valuable Player after contributing 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists!
