In their first season in the Skyline Conference, the Women’s Basketball team had a successful season, making it to the Skyline Championship game and receiving a bid to the ECAC Tournament. They finished the season with an overall record of 20-7, including 12-2 in the Skyline. Farmingdale picked up their first Skyline post-season victories against St. Joseph’s and Manhattanville. After a tough loss to Mt. St. Mary’s in the Skyline Finals, the women were chosen as the #5 seed in the ECAC Division III Metro Region, where they faced the eventual Metro Division Champions Drew University. This marked the second consecutive year the Rams earned a post-season berth as last year’s team was selected to the NCAA Championship Tournament.
Individually, the team was led by seniors Karen King and Danielle Houpe, as well as junior Sharon Billips and sophomore Angela Williams. King averaged a team best 7.6 rebounds per game and 55 blocked shots, along with 11.2 points per game. Houpe was the team leader in assists and steals and finished averaging 8.3 points per game. Billips, who joined the team in January, averaged a team-high 13.4 points per game as well as 7.5 rebounds per game. Williams finished the year averaging 9.8 points per game, including a team-high 44 three-pointers.
King was named Second Team All Skyline and First Team All WIAC for the second consecutive year. Williams was named to the WIAC First Team and Houpe was selected to the WIAC Second Team. Coach Chris Mooney was named WIAC Coach of the Year after the women picked up their second straight WIAC Championship.
