WEST POINT, N.Y. — The Army Athletic Association recognized juniors Connor Cook and Jesse Glenn Monday afternoon, as the duo shares the athlete of the week honor following stellar weekend performances.
Cook recorded a career-high in goals and points against 20th-ranked Bucknell on Saturday in a 12-4 win. He posted a hat trick in the first 20 minutes as Army raced to a 6-1 lead. In addition, he added single goals in the third and fourth quarters to set a new career best with five goals.
The California, Md., native is second on the Black Knights with 22 goals and has scored a goal in 16-straight games, which is the fifth-longest active streak in the country. The five goals and seven points are a season-high for Army in a single game.
The men’s lacrosse team is back at Michie Stadium for the first time in a couple of weeks to take on Boston University in a key Patriot League matchup. Tickets are still available for the 12 p.m. start on Saturday. For tickets, visit www.goARMYsports.com/tickets, call 1-877-TIX-ARMY or stop by the Army Ticket Office located at Gate 3 of Michie Stadium.
This is the third AAA Athlete of the Week nod for Glenn, who earned an all-around score of 86.050 at the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championships to claim his second straight title. He led the team to a 422.050 team score and qualified for the individual finals on four events.
The team victory was the first in 10 years for the Black Knights and earned Army an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships.
In day two’s action, Glenn continued to impress, recording marks of 14.900 on vault, 14.500 on parallel bars and 15.000 on high bar to add three additional medals to his repertoire. The win on high bar was his second straight as he has now captured six ECAC crowns in two meets.
In addition, he was named to the ECAC All-Academic squad, boasting a GPA of 3.514 as an engineering management major.
Glenn and the Black Knights will return to action on April 9-11 when they travel to Norman, Okla., for the NCAA Championships, hosted by the University of Oklahoma.
