CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Four more Patriot Leaguers were honored with Corvias weekly awards from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) late Wednesday.
Lehigh senior quarterback Brandon Bialkowski was named the FCS co-Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week, while American senior outside hitter Julie Crum picked up a co-Player of the Week nod in volleyball, Navy sophomore forward Jamie Dubyoski earned co-Offensive Player of the Week in men's soccer and Colgate men's soccer junior defender Evan Heroux was named Defensive Player of the Week.
Bialkowski led No. 17/21 Lehigh to a 34-27 comeback win over No. 7/10 New Hampshire on Saturday. He completed 31-of-52 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score on a 15-yard strike to Derek Knott with 12:19 to play. Bialkowski has thrown for at least 300 yards and two touchdowns in all four games this season, and stands in the top five nationally in passing yards, completions and total offense per game. He completed passes to seven different receivers, with both Lee Kurfis and Sergio Fernandez-Soto going over 100 yards. Bialkowski is the first Lehigh quarterback since Chris Lum (2011) to throw for 300 yards or more in four consecutive games.
Crum collected her second straight Molten Patriot League weekly award on Monday after leading American to a 3-0 week, including victories in the Eagles' first two League matches of the campaign. After posting a 10-kills, 15-dig double-double on Wednesday in a five-set win over UMBC, Crum scored 10 kills in Friday's straight-sets victory at Lafayette in her team's League opener. The senior was a main contributor on offense against Saturday with 15 kills and a .324 hitting percentage in another 3-0 win, this time at Bucknell. For the week Crum averaged 3.18 kills per set and hit .244, and upped those numbers to 4.17 and .263 against League opponents. She also averaged 2.45 digs per set across 11 sets.
Dubyoski, who was named to the College Soccer News Team of the Week on Monday morning, netted a pair of game-winning goals last week. He scored what stood as the game-winner in the 10th minute of the Mids' 2-0 clean sheet at ACC foe Virginia Tech on Tuesday. In Saturday's League opener at home against Boston University, Dubyoski struck again with the game's only marker in the 28th minute to give Navy a 1-0 triumph. The sophomore from Catonsville, Md., is riding a four-game goal-scoring streak, and has six goals and 13 points on the year.
Heroux played an excellent all-around game on Saturday, contributing at key times on both sides of the ball to give the Raiders a 1-0 victory over defending Patriot League champion Lafayette. He tallied the game's only goal in the 55th minute following a corner kick. Ethan Kutler played a high ball into the box that was headed by Frankie Bergonzi before Heroux headed a redirection into the net. With 15 minutes remaining in the game Heroux came up with a huge defensive play, blocking the net from an Andrew Gonzalez one-timer after a free kick to preserve the lead.
A total of 22 Patriot League student-athletes have been recognized with Corvias ECAC Weekly awards in four weeks.
