COLUMBUS, OHIO -- After an 11-game winning streak, the Colgate Raiders have finally met their match. No. 2 seeded Tennessee advances to their next opponent, while the Raiders head home, but they’re not leaving Columbus, Ohio as losers.
“When you think about the 10’s of millions of people who fill out a bracket every year. Everybody, all of those people have to be looking at Colgate, and seeing, imagining, and asking themselves who are they and what are they about, so for that many people to really get a sense of who we are, or just start to get a sense of who we are is huge,” said Nicki Moore, the vice president/director of athletics.
“What an unbelievable job they did to get here. You know it’s not about the win or loss, but just to even be here is what it’s all about, and they’ll remember this for the rest of their lives. It’s awesome,” said Brian Grady, the assistant athletic director for advancement.
Fans back home in Hamilton say they’re proud of the team’s amazing season.
