On Saturday, RIT, in an effort to connect its five campuses worldwide, will host its inaugural One SpiRIT: Global Hockey Festival at the brand new Gene Polisseni Center. In a global celebration of RIT hockey, RIT's main campus will be connected with its international campuses in Croatia, Dubai and Kosovo via advanced Cisco Systems telecommunications technology. This technology will allow students from around the world to interact with each other in real time.

Men’s Hockey (0-0-0, 0-0-0 AHA) – RIT opened the 2014-15 season by defeating Brock University, 5-2 in an exhibition contest before 2,973 fans at the Gene Polisseni Center on Saturday. This weekend, the Tigers kick-off regular season play at the new rink by playing St. Lawrence on Friday and Clarkson on Saturday. Both games start at 7:05 p.m. The Tigers are 4-9-0 all-time against St. Lawrence, 4-6-0 in the Division I era and 2-11-3 all-time against Clarkson, 0-5-2 in the Division I era. Last season, RIT hosted St. Lawrence in a pair of games and split, falling 5-3 and winning 6-4. The Tigers went up to Clarkson for a pair of games, losing 4-1 and skating to a 3-3 draw.

Women’s Hockey (2-0-0, 0-0-0 CHA) – The Tigers (2-0-0) christened the brand new-Gene Polisseni Center with a pair of wins to open the 2014-15 season, 2-1 and 2-0 over Union. On Friday, Lindsay Stenason scored the game-winner with 10:38 left in regulation. The next day, Celeste Brown broke a scoreless tie with 16:33 left in the third period and Carly Payerl added an empty-netter. Ali Binnington stopped all 32 shots she faced for her 15th career shutout. Binnington has now won her last nine games dating back to last season with an incredible 0.72 goals against average and .976 save percentage, having allowed just seven goals and stopping 285 shots during that span. RIT hosts The University of New Hampshire on Friday and Northeastern on Saturday, both at 3:05 p.m.

RIT’s Inaugural One SpiRIT: On Saturday, Oct. 11, RIT, in an effort to connect its five campuses worldwide, will host its inaugural One SpiRIT: Global Hockey Festival at the brand new Gene Polisseni Center.

Szybist was named to the Fredonia Blue Devil Invitational All-Tournament Team after slamming 72 kills (5.5/set) to go along with 48 digs (3.7/set) while hitting .276 in a 3-1 week for RIT. She matched a season-high with 27 kills to go along with 15 digs in a four-set win over host Fredonia on Saturday. She is among the national leaders with 5.07 kills per set and 5.89 points per set this season. Szybist is just 45 kills away from 1,000 for her RIT career.

Women’s Cross Country – Sophomore Emma Jones (R-H) was named the Liberty League Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week on Monday for the third time this season and fifth of her career. Jones crossed the finish line first for RIT and third overall out of 286 runners at the Geneseo Invitational on Saturday, leading RIT to a third place finish. Jones enjoyed a 5:50 mile pace, cruising the 6,000-meter course in a RIT school record time of 21:44.6, just eight-tenths of a seconds shy of Brockport's Rachel Malone in second place. Malone was an All-American last season. Jones' time of 21:44.6 smashed the previous 6,000-meter best of 22:07.6, set by Erin LaFave at the 2012 Oberlin Inter-Regional Rumble.

Men’s Cross Country – Matt Giannino (CBA) was named the Liberty League Cross Country Runner of the Week on Monday for the second time this season and 11th of his brilliant career. Giannino was the top collegiate finisher; as the RIT men's cross country team placed eighth out of 21 teams at SUNY Geneseo Invitational, held at Letchworth State Park on a cool, damp Saturday morning. Giannino was second overall out of 289 runners, but was the top collegiate runner, finishing the 8,000-meter course in a very fast time of 24:50.2, enjoying an incredible mile rate of 5:00.
