Westwood, MA --- WPI junior Mark Calnan (Winchester, MA) scored NEWMAC Men's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week accolades, as announced Tuesday afternoon. He is the program's first honoree since Brendan Nemes was selected last October.
Calnan, who was also named as the WPI Men's Student-Athlete of the Week, has notched the game-winning goal in each of the last three contests. After a last-minute goal in a 1-0 result at Emerson to close out the previous week, the junior needed less than a minute in OT to secure the victory Tuesday at Wentworth. His free kick in the 61st minute was the difference as the Crimson and Gray defeated Wheaton, 2-1, this past Saturday.
Babson senior Jackson Greenspan (Meriden, NH) repeated as the league's defensive athlete of the week.
Men's Soccer (8-2-2, 2-0-2), the sixth-ranked team in the United Soccer Coaches New England Top 10, returns to the pitch Saturday with an 11:30am appointment at Coast Guard.
