ATTLEBORO, Mass. – For the second-straight week, Southern Vermont College freshman Diego Uquillas (Erie, Pa.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week—the league announcing on Monday that the latter is for the period ending September 9, 2018.

The Mountaineer posted five saves in Southern Vermont's first win of the year on Saturday—allowing only one goal in 97:09 minutes of action against Northern Vermont University-Lyndon during the opening round of the LINAO Mountaineer Invitational. Uquillas then came up with seven stops against Curry College in a hard-fought championship game on Sunday to finish with a 1.33 goals against average through the three-game week.

Uquillas and the Mountaineers are back in action on Wednesday with a 3 p.m. home match against Castleton University.
