  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (April 28, 2014) – Rutgers men’s lacrosse sophomore A Scott Bieda (Bridgewater, N.J.) earned BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week honors, while senior D Nick Contino (Branchburg, N.J.) was named to the conference’s weekly honor roll, the league announced Monday.

    Bieda led the offensive charge for Rutgers in a key 12-8 BIG EAST win over Georgetown on April 26. The sophomore was the leading scorer for the Scarlet Knights, posting five points on two goals and three assists. The three assists tied his career high. The honor is the first conference award of his career.

    Contino was a lockdown defender for the Scarlet Knights at Georgetown. The senior caused a game-high two turnovers, while collecting a career-high six ground balls. He got the Scarlet Knights started offensively with his second career goal just one minute into the game. Defensively, he shut down Georgetown’s Bo Stafford, who is second on the squad in points and leads the Hoyas’ attack unit in that category. Stafford posted just one assist. It is the second time this season that Contino was named to the weekly honor roll.

    Bieda and Contino join sophomore GK Kris Alleyne (New City, N.Y.), redshirt senior A Scott Klimchak (Clark, N.J.), freshman Connor Murphy (Cliftion, Va.), junior M Rich Rambo (Abington, Pa.), redshirt senior M Anthony Terranova (Flemington, N.J.) and freshman A Christian Trasolini (New Hyde Park, N.Y.), who have also received conference weekly honors this season. Bieda joins Klimchak and Alleyne with his player of the week honor. Klimchak was named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week on Feb. 24, while Alleyne was named defensive player of the week on March 17.
