Peahens Claim Victory Against Rider–and Breast Cancer!

The Saint Peter’s College Peahens defeated the Rider University Broncs on Thursday night’s women’s basketball game with a 62-49 victory.  The game was a part of the WBCA Pink Zone program to raise breast cancer awareness and earn donations for women’s cancer research.

Students and faculty chose to show their SPC spirit in the form of pink t-shirts and ribbons, instead of the typical peacock blue.  The Peahens complimented their uniforms with pink socks, shoelaces, and hair ribbons, while the Saint Peter’s College cheerleading squad sported pink ribbon t-shirts over their uniforms.

Among top scorers for the Peahens was freshman Aziza May with 19 points.  Meanwhile, junior Jynae Judson reeled in 16 points and 6 rebounds for the evening.

Thursday was also Senior Night for the Peahens, who honored seniors Jessica Coles and Charlene Riddick before the game.

Basketball fans are invited to return to the Yanitelli Center as the Peacocks face off against the Iona College men’s basketball team on Friday, February 25th at 9:00pm for Senior Night.
