Congratulations to the following student athletes, who recently received honors from the Commonwealth Coast Conference:
Field hockey: Amber Cody ’18
Cody was named offensive player of the week after scoring the game-winner in both of Salve Regina’s one-goal victories last week. Against Wheaton College, she registered three of the Seahawks’ four goals, and followed that up with a three-point performance (one goal, one assist) against Gordon College.
“Amber has stepped up for us on offense so far this season,” said head coach Jennifer Foster. “She is a scoring threat but also sets up her teammates well in the circle.”
Salve Regina (4-1, 1-0 CCC) hosts three opponents this week at Gaudet Field – Lasell College on Tuesday, Sept. 20, Roger Williams University on Thursday, Sept. 22 and University of New England on Saturday, Sept. 24.
Women’s volleyball: Annie Donahue ’20 and Cassidy Trablicy ’19
Donahue was named rookie of the week in the midst of Salve Regina’s five-game winning streak. She averaged 2.25 kills per set and picked up five blocks, four of which were solo stops. Donahue also offered 2.8 points per set last week.
Trablicy was named player of the week after averaging 3.67 kills per set, 3.67 digs per set and 4.2 points per set last week. She picked up double-doubles against Wheaton College and Western Connecticut State University.
The Seahawks are currently sitting at 7-3 on the season. Salve Regina travels to face Framingham State University on Tuesday, Sept. 20 before returning home on Wednesday, Sept. 21 for the first conference contest of the season against Roger Williams University.
Women’s cross country: Victoria Varone ’17
Varone was the top conference finisher in the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Invitational last Saturday, earning her runner of the week honors. She cruised to a new personal-best 5K time, crossing the finish line in 18:48.47. Varone finished 15th in the field of 275 runners and led the Seahawks to a seventh-place finish among 37 teams.
“Victoria ran a smart race and held her own against high-quality competition at UMass Dartmouth,” said head coach Rob McGuinness. “I’m proud to see her improve her personal record at 5K, especially as a senior. It shows that she is still getting better, and I’m sure her best is still to come.”
The Seahawks travel to Williamstown, Mass., to race in the Purple Valley Classic on Saturday, Sept. 24.
