NORTHFIELD, Vt. - Norwich University freshman men's soccer player Kyle Buscaglia was named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) "Rookie of the Week" on Monday after helping the Cadets to a perfect 2-0-0 record last week.
Buscaglia assisted on a goal in Norwich's 3-2 win over Lasell on Wednesday. He added a goal in the Cadets' 4-1 victory over Rivier on Sunday. The two triumphs helped Norwich secure home field advantage in the first round of the GNAC Tournament, which begins on Saturday, Oct. 31.
For the season, the Akron, N.Y., native has scored two goals and added five assists for nine points.
Norwich (9-6-2) will begin defense of its 2009 GNAC Tournament title on Saturday, Oct. 31 with a quarterfinal contest at Howard Field. The Cadets' opponent in that match is still yet to be determined.
