Secord Named ODAC Player And Rookie Of The Year

Canon Secord was ODAC Player of the Year and ODAC Rookie of the Year.

FOREST, Va. - Bridgewater College freshman Canon Secord took two top honors on the All-ODAC men's tennis team as he was named both Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

Secord is the first Bridgewater player since 1991 to take the Player of the Year honor. Laurent Comec earned the honor for the Eagles during the 1991 season. Secord is the first Eagles player to take the Rookie of the Year title since the award was initiated by the conference in 2003.

Secord was also named to the All-ODAC first team at No. 1 singles, the fourth Bridgewater player since 2009 to earn a spot on the first team at No. 1 singles.

The Eagles freshman finished the season with a 15-2 overall singles record and a 9-1 mark in ODAC play. He is ranked No. 21 in the ITA Division Atlantic South regional singles rankings.

Secord also earned a spot on the All-ODAC team in doubles as he and his partner, fellow freshman Matthew Gordon, were named to the second team at the No. 1 doubles slot. The duo finished 10-3 overall and 9-2 in conference play.
