Penn State freshman goalie Austin Kaut (Springfield-Delco) has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week for the week ending February 20. Kaut earned the honor after earning a victory in his first game as Penn State’s goalkeeper.
Kaut, in Jeff Tambroni’s first contest as head coach at Penn State, tallied 10 saves against 17 shots in the Nittany Lions’ 9-7 win over Binghamton. He also picked up two ground balls in the victory. The frosh now ranks fourth in the league with a save percentage of .588.
The Nittany Lions will entertain No. 3 Notre Dame next Sunday at 1 p.m. The game will be played at Bigler Field unless otherwise announced.
