The New England Collegiate Conference Office announced Thursday the results of the Preseason Poll for men's basketball, revealing that the Newbury Nighthawks have been voted seventh in the conference, as determined by the coaches of the NECC teams. One team failed to participate in the voting.
Nighthawks Men's Basketball Head Coach Rich Fazzi announced Monday the addition of two members to his coaching staff. Donald Morris, who has experience in the New England Collegiate Conference in his 13 years in collegiate coaching and Daivon Edwards, a graduate of the Class fo 2018 and former four-year member of the Nighthawks program from 2014-2018.
The fairly young men's basketball program has a year of experience under their belt as they enter the 2018-19 season. Although the loss of a pair of 1,000-point scorers will be missed, the Nighthawks return a number of young, talented players to pair with their skilled, recruited class of freshman.
Nine Newbury College student-athletes have been elected or re-elected to Student Government Association positions on Thursday afternoon, following the announcement of final results earlier this afternoon.

Southern Vermont College claimed three of the four major awards.
