Aronson, Cody and Elster earn end-of-season accolades
Three student-athletes – Nico Aronson ’18, Amber Cody ’18 and Jordan Elster ’19 – recently received end-of-season accolades from various sports associations.
Football: Nico Aronson
Aronson was named a third-team center on the D3Football.com all-East Region team, adding to his list of accomplishments this season, which include Commonwealth Coast Conference offensive lineman of the year, first-team all-conference and a New England Football Writers Division II/III all-New England player.
“There are nothing but great players on the all-East Region team and we are proud to say that there is no doubt that Nico deserves this recognition because he is definitely one of the great ones,” said head coach Kevin Gilmartin.
Field hockey: Amber Cody
Cody was named a 2017 all-American by Synapse Sports. She enjoyed a career year, leading the Seahawks for the second straight season in scoring (22 goals in 18 games). The Commonwealth Coast Conference offensive player of the year also led the league in assists (nine) while ranking second in goals and points (53). Cody ranks second all-time on the school’s record books for career assists (25), third for career goals (43) and fourth for career points (111).
“Recognition on a national level is a great honor for Amber and our program,” said head coach Jennifer Foster. “I couldn’t be happier for her to continue receiving these honors after the strong senior season she had.”
Men’s soccer: Jordan Elster
Elster was named to the scholar all-America team by United Soccer Coaches, marking the first time a Seahawk has earned a selection to an all-America team. He earned all-region honors as an athlete and a scholar and is the only junior back on either the first or second team. A right back, Elster scored one goal this season and assisted on two others; his lone goal was a game-winner against the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
“I’m not sure that any words can adequately describe my elation over hearing that Jordan has been named a scholar all-American,” said head coach Craig O’Rourke II. “Jordan’s level of commitment really is something special. He is literally in the gym and in the library every day. He’s a Pell Scholar and has one of the most demanding course loads on our roster, yet he still maintains one of the highest GPAs on our team.”
