Dylan Webster Wins Fourth NEC Rookie of the Week Honor

HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University freshman men's lacrosse midfielder Dylan Webster (Brampton, Ontario) has been named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week for the fourth time in the last five weeks, the league office today announced. The four Rookie of the Week awards are the most by an NEC freshman in the two years of the honor, doubling the prior high of two, established by two different players last season.

Webster scored a highly improbable goal to put the Bobcats up two goals late in regulation of Quinnipiac's 13-12 victory against Bryant Friday. After Webster had the ball checked out of his stick, he picked up the ground ball and slipped an elusive shot past two Bulldogs defenders and the goalie. Webster has now scored a goal in each of the Bobcats' last five games.

The Bobcats return to NEC action Saturday, when they play host to preseason NEC favorite Robert Morris. Opening face-off from the Quinnipiac Field Hockey & Lacrosse Turf Field is scheduled for 1 p.m.
