Beginning with Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2017) and finishing with the final day of August, 95 moments (19 x 5) will be shared to relive the most exciting happenings of the most recent Seahawk season.
Salve Regina women's basketball landed two players on the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) all-conference teams with freshman Torie Scorpio (Cranston, R.I.) earning a major honor as the league's Rookie of the Year. Scorpio also earned a selection to the second team, and is joined on the squad by sophomore teammate Kerri Beland (Attleboro, Mass.) who earned votes for a third team nod.

She ranked in the Top 10 in assists (78), steals (44), and points per game (12.6). She was also very strong from the charity stripe, knocking down 71.0 percent of her free throws, which ranked her ninth in the conference.
