McCracken gets offensive

Shane McCracken earns the male athlete of the week honors after leading the men's soccer team to a 2-0 season-opening weekend at home.

The junior captain opened the season with a four-goal outburst in a 10-1 win over Southern Vermont on Friday. For an encore on Saturday, McCracken put up another four goals but also added his first career assist. It marked the first time in program history that a player has recorded four or more tallies in back-to-back games.

His eight goals and 17 points lead the conference and is the highest known total in Division III through the first weekend of action.
