Coach Gaitley and four players help preview the season
With fall turning to winter, it’s time to look forward to the action on the hardwood. The women’s basketball team at Fordham has been under new management now for one year, and there is cause for real optimism on Rose Hill.
This week on the Stephanie Gaitley Show, DJ Sixsmith and I preview the season with Coach Gaitley. Coach tells us that her team is up to the challenge of a demanding schedule, and tells us how the squad will follow up a season that ended in the first round of the Atlantic Ten Tournament. She also previews the new faces that you’ll see in the Rose Hill Gym this year.
We were also joined by four of the team’s most experienced players to talk about their expectations for the season. Last year’s leading scorer Arielle Collins will have a new partner in the backcourt this season, as junior transfer Erin Rooney joins the team. In the front court, senior forward Charlotte Stoddart will be joined by graduate student transfer and sharpshooter Marah Strickland.
