Londonderry’s Cody Ball, a recent graduate of Saint Anselm College, was nominated for the Man of the Year award issued by the Northeast-10 Conference in early May.
Ball competed for the men’s basketball team, and was nominated for excelling in all areas of his collegiate career, on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
Ball concluded a four-year tenure with the men’s basketball program at Saint Anselm, serving as a team captain in 2018-19. In the classroom, Ball graduated in May with a degree in Biology. In his senior campaign, he was named to the All-Tournament Team for the NCAA Division II East Region Championship, hosted by Saint Anselm and won by the Hawks.
In 2018-19, Ball and the Hawks won the program’s first-ever NCAA Division II Elite Eight game, downing No. 5-ranked Nova Southeastern, 91-81. He had four 3-pointers and finished with 16 points in the victory, pulling down six rebounds. The two-time All-Conference selection was the Most Valuable Player of the 2016-17 NE10 Championship.
Off the court, Ball served on the College’s Health Committee and volunteered his time at the Manchester Kids Café, the Sununu Youth Services Center, and was active with FAPNO, the Foster Adopted Parents Night Out. He also conducted an internship at Boston Physical Therapy and Wellness, shadowing the physical therapists and assisting patients.
