This week’s Athlete of the Week is junior defenseman Zach Moro of the men’s lacrosse team. Moro lead the Engineers to an impressive 17-3 win over Vassar College. Moro and the RPI defense held Vassar College scoreless through the first quarter of play and 10 minutes into the second quarter. Moro was able to bring in three ground balls, and force one turnover in what was a spectacle of a defensive performance. Moro also contributed to the scoring attack of RPI’s offense, bringing in one assist.
The Athlete of the Week award is a new feature that will spotlight an in-season athlete who has demonstrated exceptional skill, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The award is selected by the sports staff of The Polytechnic, with input from RPI Athletics and the campus at large.
