PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania’s Sam Wancowicz earned the first weekly honor of his men’s soccer career on Monday, picking up Philadelphia Soccer Six Rookie of the Week recognition.
A center back for the Quakers, Wancowicz was dominant in the air on Saturday against Columbia, consistently winning headers and denying Columbia long-range attack.
Wancowicz has appeared in eight matches for the Quakers this season, making seven starts. He leads all defenders in shots taken with five.
The Quakers are back in action on Tuesday with a match at Rutgers. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
