University of Hartford

When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.

The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.

Hawks Women's Basketball on WWUH: Building Upon History

 

Jennifer Rizzotti has built the University of Hartford women's basketball program into one of the nation's up-and-coming programs. This remarkable story will continue to unfold in November and WWUH will be there to capture all the action live.

         Hartford has appeared in postseason play five of the past seven years. The Hawks reached the round of 32 in the 2008 NCAA Tournament, defeating Syracuse in the opening round in Baton Rouge, LA. The program has recorded three-consecutive 25-win seasons while continuously upgrading its schedule to include an increasing number of teams from power conferences.

         The year ahead will see the Hawks face the likes of Duke, Ohio State, Connecticut, George Washington, Louisville and Bowling Green. Of the 13 non-conference games, the Hawks have the chance to face seven teams who qualified for the NCAA Tournament a year ago, including final four member Connecticut. The Hawks will participate in two regular season tournament, the first at DePaul with Duke and Southern University and the second at George Washington with Liberty and South Alabama.

Amy Lawrence will begin her first season as the voice of the Hawks, replacing long-time announcer Jon Easterbrook who retired from announcing in May. Lawrence is one of a handful of female play-by-play announcers in the US. She comes to Hartford after serving in the same role at Rhode Island for the last four seasons and as a fill-in host for ESPN Radio in Bristol, CT. She will be joined by Brian Irizarry also beginning his first season with Hartford. Irizarry comes to Hartford by-way of the Connecticut Defenders minor league baseball team in Norwich, CT, where he serves as the play-by-play announcer for the San Francisco Giants affiliate.
