Fairfield, CT - Freshman second baseman Brian Lamboy (Manalapan, NJ) has been named Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week. It is the second time a Pioneer has received the honor with freshman Jesus Medina (New York, NY) winning the award two weeks ago.
Lamboy batted .462 (6-for-13) while helping Sacred Heart to a 4-3 week, including winning three out of four conference games against LIU Brooklyn. He came off the bench and smacked a base hit on Thursday against Iona before starting all four games against LIU Brooklyn. Lamboy recorded a base hit and a run-scoring groundout that proved to be the difference in Sacred Heart's 2-1 series-opening victory. On Saturday, Lamboy went 3-for-4 with a double, two steals and four runs in Sacred Heart's 9-7 series clinching win over the Blackbirds.
