NYIT’s Alberto Alonso Marchan has been named Rookie of the Week for Division II by the Eastern College Athletic Conference. This is the second week in a row he has received the honor.

Marchan, a freshman from Madrid, Spain, is off to a strong start to his first season with the Bears and currently leads the team with four points on one goal and two assists.

He assisted fellow freshman Adam Raso‘s (Islip) goal at 87:22 that sealed a season-opening 3-1 win against Concordia on Aug. 31. Marchan then tallied his first collegiate goal to open the scoring in an eventual 2-1 loss at Post two days later. Against Bentley on Saturday, he assisted Krishen Patel‘s first-half game winner in a 1-0 victory.
