Mankus Tabbed NEWMAC Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week
Springfield, Mass. - September 19, 2011
- John Mankus
was named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week after helping guide the Springfield College men's soccer team to a 1-0-1 record over the last week.
The Vernon, Conn. product has been the glue of the Pride's defense that posted two more shutouts last week to bring its season total to four through six matches.
The sophomore defender played a pivotal role in Springfield's 0-0 draw with Wesleyan, marking the first time the Pride held the Cardinals off the scoreboard since 1990. Behind his strong play, Springfield then blanked MIT over the weekend to pick up a key conference 1-0 win on the road.
