Brooke Salmon has been a fixture on the pitch for Fordham’s women’s soccer team making 61 appearances (59 starts) during her first three years with the Rams.
As she embarks on her senior year, the West Hempstead native and a graduate of Kellenberg Memorial High School will serve as team captain for the 2018 season, chosen unanimously by her teammates and coaches.
“Brooke has lead this program since she arrived on campus her freshman year and has developed as a leader with each season,” said Jessica Clinton, the team’s head coach.
Since arriving at Rose Hill as a freshman in 2015, Salmon has been an impact player for Fordham and played several positions ranging from attacking midfielder to center back. Through her first three seasons, she has 9 goals and 6 assists.
She has also earned a bevy of Atlantic-10 Conference honors during her first three years with Fordham. She received All-Rookie Team honors in 2015, Second Team All-Atlantic 10 honors as a midfielder in 2016 and Second Team All-Atlantic 10 honors as a defender in 2017.
Salmon has also been a strong performer in the classroom as a two-year member of the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and has been a part of three Team Academic Awards given by United Soccer Coaches.
“When we think about what a Fordham Ram is, Brooke certainly fits the mold,” said Clinton. “She’s an incredible leader both on and off the field. We look forward to Brooke and the senior class leading this team this coming fall season.”
