The Roadrunners women's basketball lineup may have just gotten stronger than ever. That was evident during Thursday afternoon's 78-53 Garden State Athletic Conference victory over visiting Camden County College, the fourth win a row for Coach Rich Cooper's squad and pushing the team's record to an impressive 7-3 overall on the season.
Guess who's back in the hunt for the Garden State Athletic Conference Basketball crown? That's right -- the Roadrunners are smack in the middle of the conversation after roaring out to a 6-3 overall start and 4-1 GSAC record, as of Nov. 30th.
Forward Trina Deveney-Bethea (Cedar Creek) deposited 24 points to lead five players in double figures as the Roadrunner women's basketball team rolled to a 108-35 triumph over visiting RCSJ-Cumberland in a Garden State Athletic Conference contest Tuesday night, the third win a row for head coach Rich Cooper's team.
RCSJ Gloucester women's basketball coach Rich Cooper is happy to see his team becoming healthy. While not everyone on the roster has returned 100 percent, freshman forward Trina Deveney-Bethea is one player who has made major strides -- and she is proving to be a difference maker.
The Roadrunner women's basketball team will look to win their second straight game when they visit Ocean County College in a 12 noon start Saturday, November 23.
Top scorers for Coach Rich Cooper's Runners include guard Qeiajae Canty (Atlantic City, 16.2 ppg), and forwards Nikita Acker (Triton Regional, 9.7 ppg) and Trina Deveney-Bethea (Cedar Creek, 12.5 ppg, 7 rebounds/game).
Today we highlight sophomore women's basketball standout Nikita Acker, who has helped the program off to a 3-3 start at the beginning of the 2019-20 season under coach Rich Cooper. Nikita has proven to be one of the top guard/forwards in Region XIX and the GSAC. See her profile below.
Yes, she does it all. We're talking about freshman guard Qeiajae Canty (Atlantic City), who continued her amazing 2019-20 season on Saturday with a solid outing in helping the Roadrunners' women's basketball team to an easy 78-44 triumph over GSAC and Region XIX foe Sussex County in the team's home opener.
Freshman guard Qeiajae Canty (Atlantic City) scored 19 points, including 15 in the first half, while sophomore Kadina Harris-Hood (Atlantic City) added 15 to lead the Roadrunner women's basketball team to a 73-66 victory over Bryant & Stratton (NY) in the season opener on Saturday.
Tradition, pride, and a solid group of veteran and incoming players will likely help the Roadrunner women's basketball team to a successful winter as the 2019-20 season opens Saturday, November 2 in New York.
