Quinnipiac headed to Sweet 16

UConn advancing to regionals isn't exactly a stunning turn of events but seeing Quinnipiac getting to the Sweet 16 is really something to behold.

The Bobcats became the first Connecticut women's team other than UConn to advance out of the subregionals in the Division I tournament beating Miami at home after topping Marquette in the first round. Next up is a test against No. 1 seed South Carolina, a team that could be missing two starters.

My colleague David Borges is down in Coral Gables covering the tournament so feel free to check out his coverage from his remarkable accomplishment.

I did a couple of stories this season on Quinnipiac, a preseason feature focusing on seniors Morgan Manz and Adily Martucci and then wrote a story off a late season game against Iona about how a balanced offensive attack could prove to be beneficial.

Just think about what a last few months it has been for Quinnipiac's women's teams.

The story of the volleyball team going from being a conference doormat to coming a match away from earning an NCAA tournament appearance.

Awesome! Hope the CT news stations and the CT residents are as proud of Quinnipiac as they are UConn. Great story!
