Now that the local college basketball season is over, looking back, it was quite the season to remember for the women !!! First of all, Gannon and the Erie Insurance Arena did an outstanding job hosting the Division II Elite Eight. Fans, players and coaches from the opposing teams in town gushed over the treatment they received here in Erie and likely will spread the word. It was nice that we had a local team in the Elite Eight too, but it was not the team expected to be there. Edinboro made it after amazingly beating Gannon four times, the ONLY four losses all season for the Lady Knights. Great season for both clubs with All Americans on both sides like the Lady Scots Val Majewski and the Lady Knights Jen Papich. Then, how about the season Kayla McBride had at Notre Dame, leading the Irish into the NCAA title game unbeaten before losing to UConn. She is a player of the year candidate, however, I doubt she wins it since UConn won the title. What a career and what a season for Kayla, making Erie and Villa Maria proud.
