By Dylan Balsamo

Cavanaugh, Goulding Awarded
Women’s basketball had an outstanding season, and two of the team’s top players, Bre Cavanaugh and Mary Goulding were given Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) honorable mentions on Wednesday, April 3 for their performances in the 2018-19 season. This award only considers student-athletes that have been named to the First Team of their respective conference or have been given some other major honor. Cavanaugh and Goulding were both the first Fordham teammates to be named to the conference First Team since the program joined the Atlantic 10 and led the Rams to their first ever share of a conference regular season championship and their first conference tournament title.

Men’s Soccer Has Cancellation
Fordham Men’s Soccer was scheduled to play Adelphi University in a spring game on Friday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. on Murphy Field, but the game was cancelled due to inclement weather. The next contest for the Rams in their spring season will be against professional side New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League at Murphy Field on Wednesday, April 10 at 4:00 p.m.

Baseball Continues Streak
Monday saw the announcement of the Atlantic 10’s Pitcher of the Week, and the award was given as a co-honor to Fordham’s Anthony DiMeglio along with Dayton’s Ben Hughes. His sharing of the award marks five consecutive weeks that the Rams have have been honored, as the last few weeks have seen Matt Mikulski and Cory Wall each win it once and John Stankiewicz win it twice. DiMeglio stood out this week in Sunday’s 6-0 win against Dayton, pitching what tied for a career best eight innings, while allowing only three hits, walking one and striking out 10.

Cheerleading, Mascot Tryouts
The 2019-2020 Fordham cheer team and mascot will have tryouts on Saturday May 4, 2019 in Rose Hill’s Lombardi Field House from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This team and mascot will be present and active at all Fordham home games for football and men’s and women’s basketball. They will also travel with the football team for away games and attend men’s and women’s Atlantic 10 Tournament games.
