Women’s Hoops Clinch
After clinching a first-round bye in the Atlantic 10 tournament earlier in the week, Fordham Women’s Basketball clinched a share of the A-10 regular season championship with their win over Saint Joseph’s on Saturday. Not only was this the team’s ninth straight win, but it was also a program record 13th conference victory of the season. The Rams have a record of 22-8 on the season overall and are 13-3 inside the A-10 conference. Head Coach Stephanie Gaitley said of her team “I’m so very happy and proud of them. This team will be a part of Fordham women’s history!”

Douglass Represents at CSA
Squash standout William Douglass was invited to and participated in the 2019 CSA Individual Championship in Providence, Rhode Island on the campus of Brown University. Douglass walked in a title-winner, having, along with his Fordham teammates, took home the Chaffee Cup at the CSA Team Championship a few weeks earlier. Playing in the Molly Cup’s West Division bracket, he lost his opening match, getting swept by Bransten Ming of Drexel 11-4, 11-4, 11-2. In the consolation bracket, he was eliminated after dropping a matchup with Amherst’s Terrence Wang 11-9, 11-8, 11-5.

Goulding Honored Again
The Atlantic 10 announced on Monday that for the third time this season, women’s basketball senior Mary Goulding has been named the conference’s Player of the Week. Goulding was an enormous part of the Rams’ two wins and conference clinching this week, averaging 20.0 points and 12.5 rebounds, shooting 58.3% from the floor, 66.7% from beyond the arc and 88.9% from the free throw line. She finishes conference play this season with an average of 13.4 points and 9.4 rebounds while having overall team highs of 50 assists and 24 steals.

Kelly Breaks Record Twice
At the 2019 ECAC/IC4A Championships this weekend at Boston University, Women’s Track & Field star Kathryn Kelly participated in the 200m on both Saturday and Sunday and opened eyes on both days, entering the Fordham history books in the process. Saturday saw Kelly come in fourth at the event with a time of 24.25, breaking the school record Mary Kate Kenny had set earlier in the year. On Sunday, while placing third in the 200m, she finished at 24.23, besting her own record from the day before.
