Senior forward Carly Canavan (Kingston, N.Y.) and junior midfielder Raegan Moulton (Baldwinville, Mass.) of the field hockey team, senior back Hamish Cadigan (Christchurch, New Zealand) and sophomore midfielder Noam Kolakofsky (Liman, Israel) of the men’s soccer team, and senior goalkeeper Casey Cook (Beverly, Mass.) of the women’s soccer team, were all honored by the league. The selected Ravens were among 84 student-athletes across seven sports honored by the Northeast-10.
For Jadel Poon-Lewis, the path to college soccer wasn’t as smooth as one would think. A phenom in his freshman season, Poon-Lewis took Franklin Pierce by storm. He started in all 17 games for the Ravens, winning 11 while boasting a 1.31 goals-against average and three shutouts. Poon-Lewis was named to the Northeast-10 Conference’s All-Rookie Team at the end of last season. However, for the Trinidad and Tobago native, playing at Franklin Pierce wasn’t a part of his initial plan. Not even close.
