MANCHESTER, N.H. – Freshman Callie Millet (Lancaster, Mass.) of the Saint Anselm College women’s soccer team and junior Keith Charles (Laurel, Md.) of the football team were selected as the Saint Anselm Student-Athletes of the Week on Monday for the period ending Oct. 14.
Millet chose the perfect time for her first two collegiate goals last week. Trailing 1-0 in the 72nd minute against Franklin Pierce University on Wednesday, Millet netted the equalizer and then potted the game winner just over four minutes later to lift the Hawks to a 2-1 victory. The win was the program’s first against the Ravens since the 1990 season and snapped Franklin Pierce’s 25-game unbeaten streak against Saint Anselm.
Charles helped the Hawks match the school record for points in a game as he amassed nearly 300 all-purpose yards in a 48-21 win against Pace on Saturday afternoon. Charles returned three kicks for 148 yards, including a career-high 82-yard return for a touchdown in the opening quarter. Offensively, Charles led a rushing attack that put up a season-high 267 yards as he carried 11 times for a career-best 119 yards (10.8 avg) and a touchdown, while also making two catches for 21 yards.
Millet and the Hawks return to action Tuesday, Oct. 16 when they travel to Southern New Hampshire University in a 7 p.m. matchup under the lights at Larkin Field. The Hawks return home Saturday, Oct. 20 at noon when they play host to Assumption College at Melucci Field.
Charles and the Hawks return to the gridiron Saturday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. when they travel to take on Merrimack College at Martone-Mejail Field. The next home game for the Hawks is Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. when they play host to American International College under the lights at Grappone Stadium on Senior Night.
