Athlete of the Week:

Nathaniel Gunderson

This week’s athlete of the week is junior forward Nathaniel Gunderson of men’s soccer. Last Wednesday, RPI hosted Vassar College for a pivotal Liberty League semifinal confrontation. After a half of scoreless soccer, Gunderson broke out in the second frame, scoring two goals in a span of 25 minutes to give the Engineers an insurmountable lead.
The second goal, which came in the 77th minute, was assisted by senior forward Tim Terrezza. Rensselaer went on to win the game 3-1, before losing a closely contested affair to St. Lawrence University in the Liberty League finals.
Gunderson finished his junior campaign with five goals and two assists for a total of 12 points.
