As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. That’s the case every year at the conclusion of the men’s volleyball season. With a 3-0 Greater Northeast Athletic Conference semifinals loss to top-seeded Rivier on April 10, seniors Tim Anderson and Matt Dionne wrapped up their collegiate careers. The April 5th Senior Day celebrated the careers of Anderson and Dionne, but it was actually the second time they participated in a senior day together.

After losing only one senior from last season, the softball team capitalized on the opportunity to improve this spring with help from many returnees, some new freshman, and a brand new set of coaches.

The Lasers spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was a success, as the team compiled a 5-3 record. Last year the team went 3-7 during the same trip.

Not only does the softball team use the tournament to play different competitors on the field, but they also use the trip as a chance to get to know each other better and become closer as team. The team welcomed six new freshmen to the team and one transfer.

It is no surprise that the 2012 and 2013 Greater Northeast Athletic Conference Player of the Year is dominating the field again for another incredible season. Senior captain Britney Wuorio has excelled by setting records and winning a GNAC championship during her time with the women’s lacrosse program.

In 2013, Wuorio led the GNAC in both points and goals, and ranked second in assists.

This season, Wuorio is currently ranked in the top of five in the GNAC in goals, points, shots, shots on goal, and assists.
