‘Hawks reign supreme

Photos by Chris Hammond and David Sorensen
A sold-out crowd of over 2,000 packed the Field House on Sunday to see the Sea-Hawks go for their second consecutive Atlantic University Sport basketball championship. After knocking off Dalhousie in Saturday’s semi-final, the Sea-Hawks did not disappoint the faithful, with an exciting 80-77 victory over the University College of Cape Breton. All five MUN starters scored in double figures with Jenine Browne and Amy Dalton leading the way with 18 points each while Kate Flynn added 15. Dalton was named player of the game, while Browne and Erika Stokes were voted tournament all-stars. Browne was also named tournament most valuable player, capping a remarkable season in which she led the country in scoring, was named AUS most valuable player, defensive player of the year, and an AUS first-team all-star. Also recognized by the AUS were Memorial coach Doug Partridge, named coach of the year; Erika Stokes, named TSN Award winner; Kate Flynn, first team all-star; and Amy Dalton, second team all-star. Action from the weekend: (clockwise from right) Browne goes in for two of her 35 points in the semi-final against Dalhousie; Coach Partridge cuts down the net following Sunday’s victory; MUN’s cheerleading squad added to the colour and excitement of the weekend; the Sea-Hawks’ most vocal supporters made their presence felt on the weekend, as they have all season; Sammy the Sea-Hawk entertained young and old; there were a few tense moments for Coach Partridge and Memorial’s bench during Saturday night’s victory; and jubilation followed the women’s second consecutive AUS championship.
