Vaickus was a co-defensive performer of the week selection for the first time this year. In his lone appearance of the week, Vaickus made 15 saves in a 10-6 win at St. Lawrence University on April 30. It was Hamilton's first win against the Saints since 2005. He leads the league with a 6.12 goals against average, ranks second with a .626 save percentage and fourth with 9.00 saves per game.
Anthos was a co-rookie of the week pick for the second straight week. He posted four goals and one assist in wins against St. Lawrence and Keuka College. He has 15 goals and seven assists in 14 games.
The Continentals (11-3 overall, 3-3 Liberty) ended 2011 with a four-game win streak. The 11 wins are the most for the program since Hamilton also ended up 11-3 in 2006. The Continentals received votes in this week's Division III Top 20 coaches poll.
