ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Southern Vermont College freshman goalie Diego Uquillas (Erie, Pa.) has earned his third New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week honor this season—picking up his latest on Tuesday for the period ending October 7, 2018.

Uquillas was perfect last week for SVC as the Mountaineer turned away all nine shots on frame that he faced through 200 minutes of action. The Southern Vermont rookie collected his first two collegiate shutouts during the week—first making five saves in a 1-0 Wednesday win at Mass. College of Liberal Arts before coming up with four big-time saves during a hard-fought 0-0 NECC tie against New England College on Saturday.

Uquillas had previously been graced with the laurel on September 4 and 10. He and the Mountaineers are back in action Tuesday with a 3:30 p.m. non-conference match at Northern Vermont University-Johnson.
