NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA - Freshman attackman Nicklaus Prozinski (Ashland, MA/Ashland HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's lacrosse team has been honored by the Little East Conference.
Prozinski has been named LEC Men's Lacrosse Rookie of the Week.
Prozinski led UMass Dartmouth in scoring in the first three games of the season, scoring nine goals and adding two assists for 11 points. He scored five goals and added an assist in last Wednesday's game against Wheaton, and scored twice against both Norwich and Mount Ida in UMass Dartmouth's other two games. He also had six ground balls in the first three games.
"Nick has stepped up in the past few weeks," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "He's been working really hard in practice, and he worked hard in the off-season. We have a nice group of freshmen, and he is leading by example. He's been finishing, and doing good things on offense, and we're excited and we hope he can keep it up for the entire season."
The Corsairs are 3-0 and will visit MIT Wednesday afternoon.
