Rams Women’s Basketball Competed at National Tournament

By Ryan Schaal
Staff Writer

This season for the Golden Rams women’s basketball team was quite successful. They earned a national tournament appearance in New Jersey with a 77-55 victory over Rochester Community and Technical College in the XIIIA Championship.

Rashonna Thomas, Daron Mainville and Za’Keea Sa’eed-El, who have combined to average 32.5 points a game, led the team, which played three games March 10-12. They have played up-tempo all year and carried their heavy pressure and quick type of play into the tournament, looking to press after most made shots and not let up. They ended up winning one of their games at the tournament with a score of 45-37 and only lost the other two games within nine points each game.

They had a successful 2016 campaign going 21-6 overall and 9-1 in conference play, often obliterating opponents, having big wins of 46, 52, 53, 32 and 35 points. Their biggest win was by 53 against Western Technical College; they really showed how dominant they can be, even pressing when they are up by 40 points.

Their coach, David DeWitt, is a tough coach who expects the highest from them and wasn’t satisfied with just a national tournament appearance. They were the 6th seed going into the tourney and faced Mohawk Valley, who was the 3rd seed. Their mentality going into the tournament was to be hard, tough-nosed, and to play fast-paced basketball.

More information about the tournament can be found here.
