HAMILTON, Ontario – A pair of Quinnipiac defensive linemates in senior Shelby Wignall (Hamilton, Ontario) and freshman Emma Greco (Burlington, Ontario) were recently featured in an article featured on the Hamilton Spectator website on Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. The local, hometown newspaper for both Wignall and Greco, written by Cecelia Carter Smith, featured the pair of homegrown stars who have found a home along the same defensive line at Quinnipiac in 2013-14.
Wignall, an assistant captain for the Bobcats this season, has amassed three points (one goal, two assists) while her D-partner Greco has compiled two assists this season as both feature prominently along the back line for the fifth-best scoring defense in the country (1.35 goals allowed per game) through 26 games. Wignall and Greco have been paired alongside one another for all 26 games this season for a No. 9 nationally-ranked Bobcat squad that has compiled the best record through 26 games (16-4-6) of any season in program history.
The article delves into the background of each player growing up in Ontario and their journey to Quinnipiac along with quotes and comments from each player and head coach Rick Seeley.
The Bobcats and tandem of Wignall and Greco will be idle this weekend as they prepare for the final eight games of the 2013-14 regular season starting with a home series against Dartmouth and No. 5 Harvard on Jan. 31 – Feb. 1.
