After guiding her team to a trio of conference victories last week, Regis College junior Brittany Stone was tabbed the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) and New England Women’s Basketball Association (NEWBA) Player of the Week.

Stone recorded a pair of double-doubles in two of three games last week, while leading all scorers with 18 points in her team’s 68-37 win over Wheelock.

Stone currently leads the Pride in points (108), free-throws (24-of-31) and rebounds (52) and less than 100 points away from eclipsing the 1,000-point mark.

Earlier this week, Noontime Sports caught up with Stone to discuss her team’s 4-1 overall start, why she chose to major in nursing, as well as what songs she listens to on a game day.

You enjoyed another successful week (last week), recording a pair of double-doubles, so what worked for you? 

Visualizing is something I’ve started doing (this season) and it’s been working well for me. On the bus ride to games, I think of the opening tip and the ending buzzer, and the feeling of winning (a game). Also, during warm-ups, my team helps me get pumped up by giving high-fives and exhibiting a lot of energy. We are always yelling and cheering each other on, even for the little things.

Tell me about playing Daniel Webster last Saturday – similar to the question above, but how were you able to be so successful, both shooting the ball and pulling down rebounds? 

There are so many things motivating us right now, and that’s what I thought about Saturday. For rebounding specifically, our team had a goal to get at least five offensive rebounds each quarter, and that’s what I was thinking about the whole time. I wanted to get as many boards as I could, both offensively and defensively. Shooting is all about the points, so we always want to score as much as possible.

What do you enjoy more during a game: scoring or rebounding? 

This is a hard question because I love doing both. Scoring is probably my favorite because it gives us a lot of energy on the court and bench, which makes us play better.

Your team has played five games thus far and is currently 4-1 overall and 3-0 in NECC play. How has the season gone thus far from your perspective? 

I think this season has been great (thus) far and we’ve definitely learned a lot from our first five games. It is still early in the season, but I believe we have the potential to go further than we ever have.

Your team heads to Las Vegas in a few weeks to compete in the Las Vegas Hoopla. What does your team need to do to be successful in both contests? 

We are facing two very tough teams, so it will be good tests for us. We need to do what we always do, which is play with a lot of energy and just be ready for anything that comes our way. If we play hard like we have nothing to lose then we will be successful.

What is something many fans don’t know about this particular Regis squad?

We have won 96 consecutive conference games, which is in the NCAA record book.

Tell me about choosing your major. What interested you in studying nursing? 

I was originally interested in exercise science my first-year at Regis, but during my sophomore year I switched to nursing because I was more interested in the medical field. My family had many experiences in hospitals, so I always found the nurses to be the most genuine people in those particular settings. Also after reading The Fault in Our Stars and watching movies like My Sister’s Keeper, I knew I wanted to pursue a nursing career in pediatric oncology.

 Have you held any internships or part-time jobs in the field? If so, where? 

This summer I am hoping to work at one of the hospitals in Boston.

Do you have any family members that work in the medical field? If so, did they inspire you to purse this major? 

I do not have any family members that work in the medical field, but like I said, my family has experienced its share of hospital stays and medical diagnoses, so those experiences inspired me to become a nurse.

Being from New England, I would presume you’re a Boston sports fan, so which of the four major teams (Bruins, Celtics, Patriots or Red Sox) is your favorite? 

The New England Patriots are my favorite Boston sports team. My goal is to actually go to a game next season.

You are less than 100 points away from reaching 1,000 points as a member of the Regis women’s basketball team – was that a goal you had heading into Regis? 

It was a goal I have had since my first season and even before  I committed to play college basketball. Since I reached the mark my junior year of high school, I wanted to do the same in college.

You eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in high school – how challenging is it to reach this particular milestone? 

In high school, I thought it would be impossible and I never thought I would reach that milestone. It was definitely a long journey, but it took a lot of hard work and perseverance.

Three songs you listen to on a game day? 

‘Famous’ by Kanye West,

‘Five More Hours’ by Chris Brown,

‘Under Control’ by Calvin Harris

Favorite television show these days? 

When I’m not watching ‘25 Days of Christmas,’ I am probably watching any reality television show.

The last book you read was …? 

The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

Finally, what do you love most about being a student-athlete at Regis? 

I love how  student-athletes are well integrated within the institution’s community. I also like how you are encouraged to pursue both athletics and education when applying to Regis.

Mass. College Baseball: Wheaton Defeats Daniel Webster, Remains In New England Regional

By NoontimeSports.com 

The Wheaton College baseball team kept their season alive with a victory against Daniel Webster this afternoon in the NCAA Division III New England Regional. Wheaton will attempt to extend its season to tomorrow when they return to the diamond later this evening against Western New England, who defeated St. Joseph’s (ME) earlier this morning.

Courtesy of the Wheaton athletic department, here’s the release from their win against the Eagles:

HARWICH, Mass. – Second-seeded Wheaton College, ranked no.15 overall in the latest D3baseball.comnational poll, eliminated eighth-seeded Daniel Webster from the NCAA Division III New England Regional double elimination tournament with a 3-1 triumph on Friday afternoon at Whitehouse Field in the first-ever meeting between both squads.

The Lyons (32-11) will play Western New England University in an elimination game later tonight at 8 p.m. The Eagles season comes to a close at 29-12 overall.

Junior right-hander Nick Filloramo (Rochester, Mass./Old Rochester Regional) improved to 6-3 overall on seven innings pitched, four hits, one run (earned), zero walks and five strikeouts on 89 pitches (68 strikes). Sophomore Mike Bisceglia (New Boston, N.H./Goffstown) hurled a scoreless eighth yielding just one hit and junior closer Ryan Grant (Easton, Mass./Avon Old Farms School) locked down his 12th save of the season on two strikeouts in the ninth. Grant surpassed Mike Spavento ’02 for the all-time career lead in saves as both relief pitchers were tied at 35 entering this afternoon’s contest.

Daniel Webster senior Syed Ali (Dracut, Mass./Dracut) was dealt the loss over seven innings, eight hits, three runs (all earned), three walks and two punchouts.

Wheaton opened up the scoring with two outs in the top of the third as senior Dan Gusovsky (Andover, Mass./Andover) was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to take a 1-0 advantage. Gusovsky knocked in his team-leading 23rd two-out RBI of the season.

Senior Eric Jensen (Gorham, N.H./Gorham) reached on a fielder’s choice, stole second base and advanced to third on an infield single to third base from classmate Sean Ryan (Norton, Mass./Norton). After Ryan swiped second, sophomore Apolinar De la Cruz (Providence, R.I./Classical) worked a seven pitch walk to set up the scoring. Ali held the Lyons offense in check with a ground out to first to end the threat.

Freshman Matt Lavanchy (Walpole, Mass./Walpole) gave the Lyons a 2-0 lead in the fourth with a sacrifice bunt RBI in between the pitcher’s mound and home to plate senior Paul O’Neill (Framingham, Mass./Framingham)from third. O’Neill led off the frame with a single to center field and used his speed to advance from first to third on a base hit to center by senior Justin Connor (Arlington, Mass./Arlington).

In the sixth, Lavanchy hooked a run-producing double on the chalk of the right field line to push Wheaton ahead 3-0. Sophomore Justin Peluso (North Andover, Mass./Saint John’s Prep) scored from first base as Lavanchy’s hit bounced into the Lyons open bullpen down the line in foul territory. Peluso got the offense started in the inning with a leadoff single up the middle.

Daniel Webster answered in the bottom half on a sacrifice fly to right field off the bat of senior Elliot Kilgore (Milford, N.H./Milford), his 17th RBI of the season. Classmate Darrik Marstaller (Spofford, N.H./Keene) notched a single to right-center, stole his team-leading 17th base of the season and advanced to third on a ground out for the Eagles lone run.

Filloramo used a ground out to end the inning and three more in the seventh to erase a two-out double down the left field line from freshman Devin DeCarteret (Pelham, N.H./Pelham) to close out his outing. Bisceglia allowed a one-out single in the eighth, stranding a runner at second base with three ground outs. Grant retired the side in order in the ninth on a strikeout swinging, a 1-3 ground out and a strikeout looking for his 36th career save. Grant is also the all-time leader in games finished (69) in program history and third all-time in appearances (72) as a junior.

Lavanchy collected Wheaton’s only multi-hit game going 2-for-4 with two RBI. Lavanchy now has 18 multi-hit games this season. Jensen extended his hitting to nine games while De la Cruz pushed his to eight and Gusovsky moved his to seven as all three hitters had just one hit in the contest.
