Lady Royals Make History with 30 Consecutive Victories

Lady Royals Make History with 30 Consecutive Victories
The Lady Royals celebrate their victory over Christopher Newport in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Lady Royals women’s basketball team posted a season for the record books in 2015-16, as the team finished with a 30-1 overall mark, won the Landmark Conference championship and advanced to the Elite Eight of the 2016 NCAA Division III Tournament. First-year head coach Trevor Woodruff, who collected Coach of the Year honors in the Landmark, led the Lady Royals to a school-record 30 victories in a row before bowing out in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament to eventual national runner-up Tufts. 

In February, the Lady Royals capped an unbeaten run in the Landmark, winning their fourth conference crown since joining the league in 2007-08 with a 78-57 win over Catholic in the Long Center. The conference title was the 25th in program history for the Lady Royals and the first Landmark Conference crown for the team since 2014. 

Junior forward Sarah Payonk was named second-team All-American by D3hoops.com and honorable mention All- American by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, while also earning the title of Landmark Conference Player of the Year. Fellow junior forward Alexix Roman was named a third-team All- American by D3hoops.com and was a first-team all-conference choice, and freshman guard Bridgette Mann was named the conference’s Rookie of the Year.
