Fordham University’s Nathan Simes was named the Atlantic 10 Conference men’s co-rookie of the week, it was announced on Monday.

The Wellington, New Zealand native shares the honor with Duquesne University’s Ask Ekeland.

This is Simes’ first career weekly award and the first for a Ram this season.

Simes scored three goals in two matches last week. He had his first career multi-goal match on Tuesday against Manhattan, netting two goals, including the game-winning tally in a 3-1 win on Sept. 6. Against UMBC, he scored his team-leading fourth goal of the season in a 2-2 draw on Sept. 9.

The Rams return to action Tuesday at 11 a.m. against Loyola (Md.), which was scheduled for Monday. It was postponed due to severe thunderstorms in Maryland.
