WORCESTER, Mass. – Following a pair of impressive performances to open his collegiate career, freshman goalie Sebastian Jimenez (Naples, Fla. / Gulf Coast High School) has been honored as the Northeast-10 Goalkeeper and Rookie of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday.
Jimenez opened his career with back-to-back shutouts in leading Assumption to its first 2-0 start since 2013. In his first collegiate start, he made ten saves to lead the Hounds to a 1-0 victory over Post. Jimenez followed it up by stopping five shots in a 1-0 victory over Holy Family on Saturday. He currently leads the NE10 with 15 saves.
This marks the second consecutive year a freshman has earned Rookie of the Week honors, as Kevin Hernandez (San Juan, P.R. / Colegio San Jose) received the honor in 2017.
Assumption is off until Saturday, when they travel to play 2-0 Mercy at 3 p.m.
