Fitchburg State Women’s Basketball Biggest Surprise of 11-12 Season

By Matt Noonan 

In case you haven’t heard, the Fitchburg State University women’s basketball team is on a roll.

They’re sporting a 10-0 record, and a major reason for their success this season is sophomore Amy Fahey, who leads the team with 265 points, and 13 blocks.

“She’s just flourished from one year to the next immensely, but there’s a lot of areas in the game where she can get better, and she knows that and we’ve talked about that extensively, and she needs to work on those things,” said Falcons head coach Walter Paschal, when asked to describe Fahey’s play this season.

Besides Fahey, the Falcons have also received help from sophomore Meaghan Secino, who has recorded 125 points, 20 assists, and 22 rebounds, and senior Rebecca Goreham, who leads the team with 140 rebounds.

Fitchburg State has earned impressive wins against non-conference foes, such as University of Massachusetts (Boston), Emerson College, Lasell, and Western New England, but will kick-off their 2012 slate with Anna Maria College before facing their first MASCAC, (Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference) foe, Bridgewater State on Saturday, Jan. 7.
