Puleo & Skinner Collect GNAC Weekly Awards

STANDISH, Maine – The Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) weekly accolades have been announced and a pair of Saint Joseph's College men's lacrosse players have been honored.

Sophomores Shane Puleo (Nashua, N.H.) and Logan Skinner (Irving, Texas) have been selected as the GNAC Player and Goalkeeper of the Week, respectively.

Puleo claims the first conference weekly award of his career after netting 10 total points with four goals and six assists in a pair of SJC victories last week. The sophomore attack netted two goals with three helpers in a 13-8 win over New England College on Wednesday and added two scores and three dimes in a 17-9 triumph over reigning GNAC Champion Johnson & Wales University on Saturday.

Skinner earns his second Goalkeeper of the Week honor of the season after posting an 8.50 goals-against average with a 63.8% save percentage in wins over the Pilgrims and Wildcats. In the 13-8 victory over NEC, Skinner made a career-high 17 stops and he turned away 13 shots in the 17-7 win over JWU on Saturday.

Through eight games this season Puleo leads the conference in points (32) and assists (23) and ranks fifth in man-up goals (4).

Skinner leads the GNAC in wins (6) and ranks second in saves (79), third in goals-against average (8.67), and fourth in save percentage (60.3%).

Saint Joseph's will play at Rivier University tomorrow at 7:00 PM.
