EDISON, N.J. – Freshman attack man Joseph Radin (Long Beach, N.Y.) has been named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Rookie of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday. It is the fifth time this season that Radin has earned the honor, this time recognizing his efforts in Marist’s two games last week at Saint Joseph’s and Manhattan
Radin finished the regular season with a bang, contributing seven points in Marist’s two games last week on three goals and four assists. The freshman had one of his best games of the season with three goals and two assists in a road win at Saint Joseph’s University. Radin had a hand in each of Marist’s first four goals, coming in the first five minutes of the game, as the Red Foxes roared out to a 9-0 lead. He scored the first goal, caused a turnover and collected the ground ball that immediately led to the second goal, and assisted on the next two. In the regular season finale, Radin added two more assists while scooping up two more ground balls and causing another turnover.
Overall, the Red Foxes have now won 15 MAAC weekly honors in the 11 weeks that they have had games.
