Hamilton College men's soccer players Jesse Arroyave ’11 (North Bergen, NJ /Masters School), James Carrington ’11 (Marietta, GA /The Marist School) and John Marchessault ’11 (Red Hook, NY /Red Hook Central High School) were honored as the team recently announced their 2010 team awards.
Arroyave was presented the Coaches Award, which is given to the team's most valuable player. The senior midfielder finished the season with two goals and three assist.
Marchessault received the Manfred von Schiller Prize. The award is presented to a member of the team who displays team spirit, leadership and integrity. It is given in honor of Coach von Schiller, who patrolled the sidelines as the Hamilton men's soccer coach from 1959 to 1998. Marchessault -- a senior midfielder -- finished the season with one assists.
Carrington received the Jacob Aron Shapiro Memorial Award, which is given to the player who best exemplifies the qualities that Jacob held in great measure: a natural physical gift, a tenacious and joyful spirit, an affinity for competition and a fierce commitment to those around him. The recipient of this award, like Jacob, is loyal compassionate, wise and true. Carrington helped lead a defense that recorded five shutouts and held opponents to just 18 goals.
