Looks like they're searching for a head coach again. Any idea if it will really be full-time?

Women's Basketball Picked Ninth in NAC Preseason Poll

WATERVILLE, ME - The North Atlantic Conference preseason women's basketball coaches poll was released today, and the Thomas women's team is projected to finish in sixth place. The Terriers received 21 points, finishing just four points behind Lyndon State College.

Castleton State College and Colby-Sawyer College tied for the top spot. Both the Spartans and the Chargers split the ten first place votes for a total of 94 points apiece. Husson University earned third place with 80 points, while Maine Maritime Academy claimed fourth with 67 points and New England College was selected fifth after receiving 59 points to round out the top billing.

Thomas (4-22, 4-14 NAC last season) first-year head coach Emily Cummins will look to build the Terriers' program and take it to the next level. Thomas returns two starters in juniors Ashleigh Gagne and Katie McAllister, and will look to several newcomers to make an early impact. Thomas has scheduled Colby College, Salem State, and Saint Joseph's (Maine) to prepare for their NAC schedule.

Six of the ten NAC women's basketball teams will kick off their quest for the 2014-15 conference title this weekend. The top six teams in the 2014-15 regular-season conference standings will qualify for the conference tournament, which gets underway Tuesday, February 24, with quarterfinal action between seeds 3-6. The top two seeds will earn a buy in the first round and will take on the two quarterfinal winners in the semifinals on Friday, February 27. The two semifinal victors will battle for the NAC championship on Saturday, February 28.

Voting for the preseason poll was conducted among the league's head women's basketball coaches.

McAllister a veteran presence for Thomas women’s basketball
The Pittston native has settled into her role with the Terriers.

WATERVILLE — Until Katie McAllister was recruited to play basketball at Thomas College, she had no idea there even was a Thomas College. Now, she’s one of the program’s veterans. McAllister, a Pittston native and Gardiner Area High School graduate, on her third coach in three years at the Waterville school — or four if you count this preseason, when Thomas athletic director David Roussel coached the Terriers during practices while the school searched for a new coach. Including Tuesday evening’s loss to Husson, Thomas is 11-45 in McAllister’s two-plus years. But there’s no questioning her commitment...

Thomas Falls Short Against UMF

FARMINGTON, ME - The Thomas women's basketball team second half rally came up short, as the Terriers fell 74-65 to the University of Maine at Farmington on Saturday afternoon. Junior Ashleigh Gagne scored a career-high 24 points on 10-16 shooting and 3-5 from the three-point line.

The first ten minutes of the first half was nip and tuck as both teams battled to a 19-19 score. The Beavers (5-9, 5-3 NAC) then went on an 11-0 run to pull ahead. Jordan Agger-Barnes would hit a layup at the buzzer to put the Terriers (1-13, 0-8 NAC) down into the half by 16, 42-26.

Thomas would battled back early in the second half and close the deficit to five with 11:42 remaining. UMF would respond by going on an 18-6 run over the next seven minutes to build their lead back up to 17 points at 67-50. The Beavers would hit free throws down the stretch to keep the Terriers from closing in.

Gagne led Thomas with her career and game-high 24 points and six rebounds. Katie McAllister added 13 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

UMF was led by Kennadi Glover with 19 points, while Lindsay Ranquist and Meghan Smith added 16 and 15 each.
