Three Seahawks 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 coaches and writers’ associations.
Football: Nico Aronson
Aronson was named to the New England Football Writers’ Division II/III all-New England team for the second consecutive season. He started seven games at center for the Seahawks this season and was named the Commonwealth Coast Conference offensive lineman of the year, also for the second consecutive season.
“All-New England consists of the best players in Division II and III in New England, and the fact that Nico has made it twice is no small accomplishment, but the key is that he is one of the best offensive lineman I have ever coached and he deserves all the accolades he is receiving,” said head coach Kevin Gilmartin.
Field hockey: Amber Cody
Cody was named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association’s first-team all-region squad. The Commonwealth Coast Conference offensive player of the year enjoyed a career season, leading the Seahawks for the second straight season in scoring (22 goals in 18 games). Cody also led the league in assists (nine) while ranking second in goals and points (53).
“To be recognized with the other top players in our region is a great way for Amber to end her Salve career,” said head coach Jennifer Foster. “She had an outstanding year offensively and is very deserving of this honor.”
Men’s soccer: Jordan Elster
Elster was named to the United Soccer Coaches’ Division III men’s all-New England second team. A right back, he scored one goal this season and assisted on two others, and was also named to the Commonwealth Coast Conference first team.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to see Jordan garner this award,” said head coach Craig O’Rourke II. “Our entire program knows how hard he works, both in the classroom and throughout the off-season, so that when the fall comes, he is ready and capable of being in our 11 and contributing on both sides of the ball to our overall team shape and dynamic.”
