Michael Sowers (Upper Dublin) has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week after his five-goal, four-assist performance in Princeton’s games against Marist and Hofstra.
Sowers began the week with two goals and three assists in the 10-6 win over the Red Foxes Tuesday. He then had his first career three-goal game, along with an assist, in Princeton’s 10-8 loss to Hofstra Saturday.
Through three games, Sowers leads Princeton with 16 points, on seven goals and a team-best nine assists. He has more points after three games than any freshman in Princeton history.
To date this century, only 14 Princeton players have ever had 16 points for an entire freshman season. Sowers has done it in three games. He already ranks 10th all-time among Princeton freshman for assists with nine.
