For some reason, this entry has been left lagging in the “Drafts” folder of the blog for several months now. I’m not sure why I didn’t post this earlier considering that the season ended back in the winter, but the pictures are here for you viewing pleasure anyway. I must have intended to add some captions to these pictures so you knew what it was that you were looking at, but I guess I didn’t get around to it.
I hope that you enjoy flipping through some of these pictures – I know that I enjoyed attending the Hawks’ games last season and I’m hoping for a better season next year. It’s a shame that a talented guy like Austin Tillotson decided to leave the team and the university, but if the kid didn’t feel comfortable in the program and wanted to go to a good academic school, then he has to make the right decision for him. And for Tillotson, that decision was to go to Colgate. If those are his reasons for leaving, I don’t think you can really blame him for making the move. Colgate is a nationally-ranked academic school while Monmouth has a modest ranking at a regional level. Colgate has about half of the enrollment that Monmouth has, so it seems to fit what the kid was looking for in his college experience.
Good for him – I wish him luck. And now, enjoy the pictures!
