Piccolo Snags Second NECC Rookie of the Week Honor

Mansfield, Mass. – For the second time already this season, Dean College freshman sensation Louis Piccolo (Foxboro, Mass.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) men's lacrosse rookie of the week it was announced by the league office on Monday.

Piccolo was dominant during a 2-0 week for the Bulldogs as he racked up 14 points (11 goals, three assists) while Dean scored 38 goals during the two contests.

In a convincing 19-4 win over Maine Maritime Academy on Wednesday, Piccolo pumped in four first quarter goals on his way to a five-goal, one-assist showing.

Then, in the Bulldogs' 19-5 triumph in their NECC opener over Becker, Piccolo scored all of his career-high tying six goals in the first half as Dean built an insurmountable 14-2 halftime edge.

So far this season, Piccolo has a goal in all eight games played including six multi-goal performances. He enters Saturday's showdown with New England College with 26 goals and 35 points – good for third and fourth, respectively, in the NECC.
