PRINCETON, N.J. – Dartmouth freshman Jack McCormick has been named the Ivy League Men’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Week for his performance Saturday at home against Yale as announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.

McCormick scored twice and assisted on two others for a four-point effort against the Bulldogs. All three figures were career highs for the first-year player from Danville, Calif.

In earning the weekly honor as the top rookie, McCormick snapped a five-season drought without a Big Green freshman earning the recognition. The last Dartmouth player to be named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week was Fergus Campbell on March 30, 2009.

McCormick’s two goals and four points also matched the Big Green’s season-best output by an individual player in 2014.

Both of his tallies came in the fourth quarter as Dartmouth continued to battle back against 14th-ranked Yale. McCormick also set up Mike Olentine’s first-quarter goal and Cam Lee’s marker in the third for his two assists.

McCormick currently ranks second on the Green in scoring with 10 points on six goals and four assists.  

Harvard’s Gabriel Mendola and Tom Schreibner  of Princeton were named Co-Players of the Week.
