MARIETTA, GA – 2017 Thunder Alum, Ben Clark captured Patriot League Rookie of the Week for his role in Bucknell’s season-opening 11-9 comeback win over Marist on February 2. He also earned the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association DI Team of the Week. Clark was the lone freshman to make the 10-man squad, the first of the 2018 campaign.
Clark, who took over in net after Marist’s seventh goal, was impressive in his collegiate debut, making four saves, collecting two ground balls and forcing a critical turnover with 1:24 remaining in regulation to help the Bisons defend its two-goal edge. He led a defense that held the Red Foxes off of the scoreboard from the time he entered the game until the 11:05 mark of the fourth quarter, a stretch of nearly 33 minutes.
Clark and the Bucknell Bisons return to action on February 10 to face defending NEC champion Bryant.
