PRINCETON, N.J. - Columbia men's soccer goalkeeper Kyle
Jackson has been selected as the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, as announced by
the conference office Monday afternoon.
The freshman from Scottsdale, Ariz. made his collegiate debut
Wednesday, Sept. 5, as he started the second half of a 0-0 game against
Manhattan. Jackson went on to stop all six shots he faced, while his teammates
scored twice to give him his first win as a collegian and give Columbia its
first victory of 2012.
Jackson also came in to start the second half Sunday, Sept.
9 on the road at Monmouth. Although Columbia fell to the Hawks, 1-0, Jackson
played a scoreless 45 minutes. He becomes the first Columbia player to earn
Rookie of the Week honors since David Najem collected the accolades Nov. 8,
Nick Scott was also honored by the Ivy League with a
selection to the Honor Roll. Scott recorded a goal and an assist in the Lions
win over Manhattan to tally three points on the week.
Columbia will be back on the pitch Wednesday for a 7 p.m.
matchup at home against St. Peter's.
