RIVERDALE, N.Y. - Manhattan men's lacrosse attackman Tyler Eidel was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Rookie of the Week as announced by the league office on Monday. Eidel is the first Jasper to earn a league distinction this season.

After sitting out all last season with an injury, Eidel burst onto the Jaspers scene in a big way at Army last Wednesday. The 6'4" sophomore gave Manhattan an early lead with his first career goal at the 11:26 mark of the first quarter. Eidel would not stop there as he went on to bury two more goals, earning his first career hat trick.

More impressive was the efficiency of his offense, scoring on three of the four shots he took during the contest. Eidel is now second on the team in goals and points through Manhattan's first two games.

Eidel and the rest of the Jaspers will open their home slate on Sat., Feb., 23 when they host Lafayette at 1 p.m. at Gaelic Park.
