Aston., PA - The Gwynedd-Mercy College women's basketball team was picked to capture the 2010-11 championship in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC), according to the preseason poll voted on by the head coaches.  Gwynedd-Mercy received a total of 134 points and four first place votes to take the top spot.  

"Considering the depth of our league, we're honored our peers have selected us the favorite this season", said Gwynedd- Mercy head coach Keith Mondillo. "We look forward and are ready to step on the court to a competitive challenge."  All-CSAC honorable mention recipient Kristy McGrath, the Griffins second leading scorer last year with 10.3 ppg, will look to lead the team back to the championship game.  The Griffins fell in the championship a season ago to Neumann University which tied in points with Immaculata University for the second spot with with a 123 points.

Despite losing the 2009-10 CSAC Player of the Year Brittany Whetts to graduation, the Knights will look to challenge the Griffins for conference supremacy along with Immaculata which will look to the 2009-10 CSAC Rookie of the Year Chrissy Esbensen and first team all-conference selection Chelsea McTigue for leadership. Both Neumann and Immaculata also received four first place votes highlighting the close race. 

Cabrini College (102), Rosemont College (45) and College of Notre Dame (15) rounded out the voting in the South Division.
