After beginning the 2014-2015 season to a rather slow start, the Saint Vincent College men’s basketball team turned its season around for the better. Lead by coach Don Paul Harris, the Bearcats look to continue winning as the team progresses further into its season. Following a strong 2013-2014 season, SVC looked to continue success this year.

November 19, 2014 at 2:48 am 0 comments

The Bearcat football team gained momentum this season with new coach, Ron Dolciato, who led the team to a season of four wins and six losses, with some upsets along the way. The 2014 season began with a staffing change, as Saint Vincent College welcomed new head coach Dolciato. For 27 years, Dolciato coached at John Carroll University as an assistant coach and the associate head coach and offensive coordinator. Dolciato brought to Saint Vincent a staff that had all previously coached at colleges and universities that were successful in Division III football. This staff helped the Bearcats defeat four different colleges and universities this season. The first win the Bearcats had this season was a home game against Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) on Sept. 20. The Bearcats beat Case Western 23-20. Senior Morgan Porter made a 31 yard field goal in the first quarter to give the BearcatsRead More

SVC Football looks ahead after first win in 2 years

October 3, 2014 at 1:56 am 0 comments

On Saturday, Sept. 20, the Saint Vincent College football team won their first game since 2011 against Case Western Reserve University. Following his first win as the Bearcats’ head coach, Ron Dolciato looks to continue to improve upon this victory. The past two seasons, the Bearcats have been winless. Coached by Bob Colbert, the last time SVC won a game was in 2011 when the Bearcats went 6-5 and appeared in the ECAC Southwest Bowl. This season, the Bearcats will run a no-huddle, hurry-up style of offense similar to that of the Auburn University Tigers. However, the offense is not necessarily the focus of this season’s team. Dolciato said, “We play our best players on special teams.” In fact, the focus on special teams has earned two Bearcats, senior defensive back Darius Brown and senior kicker Morgan Porter, back-to-back special teams player of the week awards. The Bearcats’ first gameRead More
