Striker Jessi Noseworthy has been named the most valuable player in Atlantic University Sport.
The fourth-year nursing student has 14 goals, leaving her tied for most in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport league, as well as nine assists in 12 games this season.
Teammate Nicole Torraville was named Atlantic University Sport's rookie of the year.

The first-year physical education student from St. John's scored seven goals this season and added three assists.
The Sea-Hawks put up an impressive record this year, with 10 wins, one loss and one loss in overtime, a record good enough for second in the AUS and for head coach Mike Power to be named Coach of the Year.
Other honours were handed out in AUS soccer on Thursday.
Two players were named first-team all-stars: Hannah Rivkin and Jessi Noseworthy
