Nighthawks senior-to-be Destiny Spears is headed for Ireland as a member of United States of America Athletes International Basketball Team in 2017, in conjunction with the Irish Roots Tour and The Irish Basketball Partnership.
Following his first season, which included an 8-18 record and eight conference wins, the most New England Collegiate Conference victories since 2012-13, Marc Taney has been promoted to Director of Basketball Operations and Full-Time Women's Basketball Head Coach effective immediately as announced by Director of Athletics Jonathan Harper on Tuesday morning.
Nighthawks junior Destiny Spears (Arnold, Md.) and sophomore Savannah Olsen (Battle Creek, Mich.) have been elected to the New England Collegiate Conference First Team, as announced by the NECC office this afternoon.
Despite a game-high 22 points in 38 minutes, junior Destiny Spears (Arnold, Md.) and the No. 6 Newbury Nighthawks have been eliminated from the playoffs in a 57-50 loss to the No. 3 Becker Hawks on Tuesday evening at Leicester Gymnasium.
After going 8-10 in the New England Collegiate Conference this season, the Nighthawks earned the sixth seed in the NECC Playoffs. Newbury travels to Central Massachusetts to battle the third-seeded Becker Hawks on Tuesday night; after the Hawks finished 13-5 in the NECC. Becker holds a pair of victories over the Nighthawks this season; a 59-50 win on Dec. 3 and 61-51 on Jan. 28. In the Nighthawks run to the finals last season, they were 0-2 against both their quarterfinal and semifinal opponent; a feat the Nighthawks will likely have to repeat to reach the finals in 2017.
Saturday afternoon wasn’t just a celebration of the senior class at Pappas Gymnasium, but a basket with 2:10 remaining gave junior Destiny Spears (Arnold, Md.) her 1,000th career point in just three seasons with the Nighthawks.
