OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — Alberto Alonso Marchan has been named Rookie of the Week for Division II by the Eastern College Athletic Conference.
Marchan, a freshman from Madrid, Spain, is off to a torrid start to his collegiate career. He currently leads the Bears with four points on one goal and two assists.
He assisted fellow freshman Adam Raso's goal at 87:22 that sealed a season-opening 3-1 win against Concordia on Aug. 31. He then tallied his first collegiate goal to open the scoring in an eventual 2-1 loss at Post two days later. Against Bentley on Saturday, Marchan then assisted Krishen Patel's first-half game winner in a 1-0 victory.
Marchan had been named East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week last week.
