NEWMAC Selects Vaz as Men’s Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week

Westwood, MA – WPI Sophomore Aaron Vaz (Medford, MA) has been selected as the NEWMAC Men's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 3rd.

Only with four total shots on goal, the forward just his first two career goals in memorable fashion as they both clinched victories to lead to an undefeated week for the Crimson and Gray.

Vaz first struck successfully last Tuesday which propelled the Engineers to a 2-1 victory over Wentworth with a trio of shots on frame. The sophomore then continued his scoring trend as he ripped a shot by the Springfield goalkeeper to mark the opening goal in the conference, 2-0, victory over the Pride on Saturday afternoon.

Vaz marks the second Engineer of the season to earn this weekly honor as teammate Franco Bazzini (San Juan, PR) earned it on September 13th.

WPI looks to host Johnson & Wales at Alumni Stadium on Tuesday, Oct. 5th, at 7pm.
