Hudson Valley Community College women's basketball Head Coach Gaberielle Doemel is the recipient of the Co-Coach of the Year award for Region III. Doemel won the Conference Coach of the Year award in her first season and trumped that in her second season.

Arianna Youngs (Lansingburgh/Lansingburgh) was the only Viking who made an All-Region team, earning Second-Team honors. She also made Second-Team All-Conference, while teammates Stacey Salisbury (Schenectady/Schenectady) and Erica Houle (Shaker/Latham) earned Third-Team.

The women's team had a well-balanced attack this season, and will look to use that advantage this weekend in the Region III tournament at Tompkins-Cortland Community College. The #3 seeded Vikings (17-7) will play #6 seeded Fulton-Montgomery Community College (17-9) on Friday, Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. Fulton-Montgomery won both meetings between the two teams this year in two close games.
