Athlete of the Week

This week’s pick: Matt Hall

Matt Hall, a freshman attackman for the RPI lacrosse team, produced an incredible four goals and one assist in the team’s home opener against Keene State. Hall led his team against Keene State in a 10-6 victory. He shot an impressive 50 percent going four for eight from the field. He also received one ground ball in the season opener.

Hall is looking to be a critical part of the 2014 lacrosse season. In total, Hall has produced five goals and three ground balls. Hall’s scoring proficiency should prove to be a truly monumental asset to the lacrosse team in producing a successful scoring attack for the Engineers.
