KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Jan. 10, 2018) – U.S. Merchant Marine Academy freshman Ivan Goretoy (West Warwick, R.I.) was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Metro Track & Field Rookie of the Week for the week ending Dec. 7, the conference announced on Wednesday. The honor comes after Goretoy's performance in the Wagner Invitational this past Friday in Staten Island.
Goretoy earned an ECAC Qualifying Mark in the weight throw event with a toss of 15.35 meters, which was good for eighth place overall and first among Division III competitors. The freshman finished ahead of 25 Division I throwers and five Division II throwers in the event. This was the second time this season he placed in the top-10 in the weight throw, as he came in first place at The College of New Jersey Invite in early December.

Merchant Marine will return to action the weekend of Jan. 20, when they take part in the 2018 SPIRE Carnegie Mellon Invitational in Geneva, Ohio.
