Football: The University’s football team dropped their final game of the season to the Gardner Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs, 34-33 in overtime. Redshirt freshman quarterback Kenji Bahar had his bast game to date, completing 27 of 38 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown. Senior running back Lavon Chaney ended his Monmouth career with a two touchdown performance, gaining 150 yards on 21 carries. Redshirt sophomore wide reciever Reggie White Jr. hauled in 10 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown. “I’m very happy, very proud with the way the players battled today,” Head Coach Kevin Callahan said. “At times I thought they played extremely hard. They put us in a position to win, but unfortunately we weren’t able to come away with the victory. The outcome can’t take away from the tremendous effort the team gave today.” The team finished the season with a 4-7 record and placed five players on 2016 All-Big South Conference teams. Junior safety Mike Basile, junior offensive lineman Alex Thompson, and White were named to the first team while senior wide reciever Darren Ambush and senor defensive end Darnell Leslie garnered second team honors.
