O'Shea Claims Conference Lacrosse Honors for Third Time This Season
For the third time in four weeks, University of Hartford men’s lacrosse player Kevin O'Shea was named the America East’s Rookie of the Week.
O’Shea took home the top rookie honor after pouring in a career-high five points on three goals and a pair of assists in the Hawks’ 20-6 victory over Brown last Wednesday. The hat trick was the second of his career.
In a game at fifth-ranked Massachusetts on Saturday, he accounted for two of Hartford’s five goals in the loss, marking his fourth multi-goal outing in five games.
A native of Dix Hills, N.Y., O’Shea leads the Hawks’ attack and is ranked among America East leaders with 14 points, including a team-best 11 goals. The league's top freshman in points and goals, O’Shea is tied for fourth in the league with 2.80 points per game and also ranks fourth with 2.20 goals per game.
