WEST POINT, N.Y. -
Army freshman back Tanner Vosvick was recognized as the Patriot League's Rookie of the Week for the period ending Oct. 13. The accolade marks Vosvick's first conference honor of the season and the Black Knights' fourth Rookie of the Week award. Junior goalkeeper Winston Boldt drew an honorable mention nod for his two shutouts last week.
Vosvick's first career goal was the game winner in Army's 1-0 victory against a Loyola team ranked fifth in the most recent National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) North Atlantic Region poll on Saturday, Oct. 12. The freshman knocked home a penalty kick in the 36th minute of the game, while also playing for the full 90 minutes to help the Black Knights preserve the shutout.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9, Vosvick was on the pitch for all 90 minutes of Army's 1-0 win over Colgate.
Boldt stopped five shots in the Black Knights' win over Colgate before making five more saves against regionally ranked Loyola. With his pair of shutouts last week, Boldt raised his season total to nine, tying Frank Oprandy '89 and Lucas Rice '93 for first on Army's single-season shutouts list. Boldt currently leads the nation in shutouts (nine) and stands second in both goals against average (.434) and save percentage (.911).
The Black Knights, who are ranked seventh in the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region, are 9-1-1 overall and 4-0-0 in the Patriot League. Army is off to its best start since 1975 when it opened 10-1-0, and is 4-0-0 in the league for the first time since 1996.
Army is back in action on Saturday, Oct. 19, when it hosts American in a Patriot League contest at 7 p.m.
