Quartet of Devils win SUNYAC awards

Four Fredonia Blue Devils have been chosen for SUNYAC weekly awards.

Arron Carlson (LeRoy/Notre Dame) was named Male Diver of the Week, the eighth time he's gotten the award this year. Also, Sam Rokos (Delanson/Duanesburg) was named Female Swimmer of the Week for the second time in 2015-16.

The Female Track Athlete of the Week is Laura Morrison (Wethersfield, Conn./Wethersfield), her second such award in the last three weeks.

The lone newcomer to the awards list is Bobby Polachek (Kingston, Pa./Wyoming Seminary), who was selected Ice Hockey Rookie of the Year.

Here is a rundown of each award:

Male Diver of the Week - Carlson was a double winner Saturday during the Blue Devils' home win over Cortland, 163-134. Both his winning scores are NCAA zone qualifying efforts for six dives: 301.75 points in the 1-meter, 348.75 points in the 3-meter. With his eight weekly honor this season, Carlson overtook Geneseo's Sam Randall (2014-15) and Fredonia's Ryan Fuller (2012-13) for most weekly awards in recent history.

Female Swimmer of the Week - Rokos was a triple winner for the second straight meet. She touched first in the 200-yard freestyle (2:00.17), the 100-yard freestyle (:55.58), and the 50-yard freestyle (:25.20) during Fredonia's home loss to Cortland. Rokos won the 100 backstroke, the 100 freestyle, and the 200 individual medley Jan. 30 at Brockport. She was also the SUNYAC weekly winner on Nov. 9.

Female Track Athlete of the Week – Morrison continued her indoor success by setting the school indoor and Brockport SERC collegiate record in the 800 meters. Her winning time of 2:12.05 which is No. 2 nationally in Division III, came Saturday during the Brockport Mid-Season Classic. She was also part of Fredonia's winning 4-by-400 meter relay team at Saturday's meet. Morrison broke Fredonia's indoor mile record in each of the previous two meets. She's currently No. 13 nationally in the indoor mile. She earned the SUNYAC weekly award two weeks ago.

Ice Hockey Rookie of the Week – Polachek had a six-point weekend in a pair of games vs. SUNY Canton. He had a goal and four assists in Fredonia's 7-2 win on Friday, and assisted on the Blue Devils' lone goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss. The output made Polachek the top scorer among Fredonia freshmen. He has 19 points -- five goals and 14 assists. Polachek joins fellow Blue Devil freshman Luke Rivera (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) as SUNYAC Rookie award winners this season.
