STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK - Eddie Macaluso, Baseball

Iona College baseball freshman LHP Eddie Macaluso earned MAAC Rookie of the Week honors for his performance in the Gaels 5-2 win at Niagara on Friday. It marked the second time this season that Macaluso earned the award.

Macaluso used 114 pitches in a complete-game six-hitter vs. Niagara on Friday. He allowed two runs and struck out four batters in first MAAC win and third victory of the season. Over his last 17.2 innings pitched, he has surrendered just three runs.

The Gaels stand tied for fifth place in the MAAC through the first four conference weekends. Iona has also eclipsed its win total from a season ago with 19 games remaining on its schedule.

The squad travels to Fordham for a non-conference tilt on Tuesday (Apr. 19) before a three-game weekend series with the NEC's Monmouth on Friday and Saturday. Iona is on the road for the first two before returning to Salesian Field on Saturday at 1:00 pm.
