PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A midfielder for the Plymouth State College men’s soccer team received Honorable Mention from the Little East Conference for his
performance this past week.

Junior Kevin Martin (Foxboro, MA) was recognized by the LEC, helping the team complete a 16-0-2 regular season. Martin scored a goal that gave PSC
a lead in a 4-0 win over Rivier last Wednesday night. The junior demonstrated great passing ability by dishing out two assists last Saturday in a 2-0 win over
Brandeis. Martin finishes out the regular season 3rd on the team with 16 points. The midfielder has played in all 18 games scoring five goals and passing for six
assists.

Plymouth State finished the regular season ranked #1 in the New England Region and #3 in the nation in Division III, as voted by the National Soccer
Coaches Association of America. The Panthers are the top seed in the New England Regional of the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament, and

PANTHER NOTES: PSC forward Jesse Elderkin (Concord, NH) leads the offense with 34 points on 15 goals and four assists. The Panther forward
finishes 3rd in the LEC averaging 1.89 points per game. Elderkin has scored at least one goal in 11 of the 18 games played this season. Sean Higgins (Foxboro,
MA) is first in the LEC and 3rd in the NCAA Division III with a remarkable 0.34 goals against average, and tied for the league lead with eight shutouts. Coming off
