Sophomore quarterback Michael Pierce (Andover, Mass.) and senior field hockey player Maddie Cantarow (Norwood, Mass.) have been named as the Saint Anselm Athletes of the Week for the week ending October 25th.
Pierce was named as the Greater Boston Gridiron Club Gold Helmet Award winner for the second time this season. In addition, he was also named as the Northeast-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Week, earned NE-10 Freshman of the Week honors for the second time this season and was named as the ECAC Division II Offensive Player of the Week. Pierce was 36-for-74 passing for 390 yards and three touchdowns, while also running 15 times for 106 yards. Pierce also finished the game with 496 yards of total offense, a Saint Anselm single-game school record. Pierce also set single-game school records in passing attempts (74), passing yards (390), total plays of offense (89) and yards of total offense (496). Each of those four marks are also Northeast-10 Conference season highs. His 74 pass attempts and 89 plays of total offense are also Northeast-10 Conference single-game records.
Cantarow, one of two seniors on this year's roster, scored her team-leading fourth goal of the season on Senior Day vs. Merrimack to give her 10 points for the season on four goals and two assists. Cantarow also had a game-winning goal earlier this season in an overtime home victory over Limestone.
