Male Student-Athlete of the Month: Kelvin Cortez | Men's Soccer
NASHUA, N.H. - The Rivier University Athletic Department is pleased to announce that freshman Kelvin Cortez of the Men's Soccer team has been named the Rivier Male Student-Athlete of the Month for September 2019.
Cortez has been a sparkplug for the Men’s Soccer team since his debut on September 8th. In the team’s 4-0 win over Northern Vermont University-Lyndon, Cortez drove home two of his first three collegiate goals and followed that performance with single tallies in the next three contests. Cortez scored a goal in five consecutive games from September 8th to September 21st. For the month, the first-year native of Meriden, Connecticut has totaled six goals on 24 shots and converted on 2 of 3 penalty kicks.
Cortez becomes the lastest member of the Men's Soccer team to garner SAOTM honors following current senior Collin Deyarmin (Raymond, N.H.) who was named SAOTM for his efforts in September 2018.
