WASHINGTON - American University men's soccer player Cooper Bryant (Niederhausen-Oberseelbach, Ger/General HH Arnold American) was named the Brine Patriot League Rookie of the Week, league officials announced.

Bryant led a defense that gave up only two goals in 203 minutes and 16 shots on goal in two games against No. 6 West Virginia and Colgate in a key Patriot League match-up.

The tie against Colgate gave the Eagles an all-important point in Patriot League standings in a race to get into the Patriot League tournament.

The Eagles are back in action this Wednesday, opening up a three-game home stand with a non-conference game against University of Pennsylvania at 2 p.m. on Reeves Field, followed by facing a Bucknell team that is sitting in fourth place in the Patriot League on Saturday at Reeves Field as part of Alumni Weekend.
