Caldwell’s Haakon Sulheim was named the CACC Player and Rookie of the Week after scoring four goals on the week, including his second hat trick of the season in a 3-1 victory over Molloy.
Stergiotis was named Co-Defensive Player of the Week with Concordia goalkeeper Ruel Gordon who did not allow a goal in 200 minutes. He made nine saves for the Clippers who went 1-0-1 on the week.
