Kings Point, NY – A pair of United States Merchant Marine Academy sophomores were chosen as Landmark Conference Players of the Week for their outstanding performances in their two victories over SUNY Maritime and Catholic University of America.
Geoff Harty (Chicago, IL) was named offensive player of the week after tallying seven goals and six assists over the two game span and Alex Peyreigne (Weston, CT) was tabbed defensive player of the week, making a total of 24 saves for the Mariners; allowing only 11 goals in two games.
Harty currently sits fifth in the Landmark Conference in both goals and points with 15 and 22 respectively, while Peyreigne is currently the conference leader in save percentage (64.5%) and has the second highest save total (69) in the Landmark Conference.
