Three athletes honored by Liberty League
Three Hamilton College athletes were honored by the Liberty League on Sept. 13 when the league announced its weekly award winners.
Anthony Balbo '13 (Poughkeepsie, N.Y./Spackenkill HS) was a men's soccer co-offensive performer of the week selection and Jon Sanford '11 (Barrington, R.I./Barrington HS) was a men's soccer co-defensive performer of the week pick. Marisa Spagnolo '12 (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Episcopal Academy) was a field hockey co-defensive performer of the week honoree.
Balbo scored two goals in a 1-0-1 week for Hamilton. He notched the tying goal in a 1-1 decision with SUNY Cortland on Sept. 8, and tallied the first goal in a 3-0 win against Ithaca College on Sept. 11.
Sanford helped lead a Continental defense that allowed one goal in two games, and added a goal and an assist in the 3-0 win against Ithaca on Saturday. Hamilton surrendered just four shots on goal last week.
Spagnolo led a defense that shut out Utica College 3-0 on Sept. 11 in Hamilton's lone game last week. Utica had scored 11 goals in its first three games.
