SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Swimmer Lexi Cole (Danville, Pa./Danville Area) and basketball player Tony Seldon (Bloomfield, Conn./Northwest Catholic) have been named the SAAC Rookies of the Month for February.

Cole was named the Landmark Conference Female Rookie of the Year after helping the Crusaders capture their second-straight league title. At the championship meet, she swam the second leg of the runner-up 200 free relay team and swam the first leg of the second-place 400 medley relay team. Cole went on to anchor the winning 800 relay team and swam the second leg of the 400 free relay team that clinched the championship crown for SU.

Individually, she placed second in the 500 free and set a school record in the 200 free with her time of 1:56.15 and won the 200 back, as well.

Seldon, meanwhile, averaged better than seven points per game in February and started all six games. He opened the month with a double-double against Moravian (11 points, 12 rebounds). In SU’s regular season finale against Juniata on Feb. 18, he had three points and nine boards. He then went on to finish with five points and five rebounds in the semifinal matchup with the Eagles the following Wednesday.

For the season, Seldon averaged 4.9 ppg and 4.3 rpg in 24 games.
