PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two Plymouth State men’s lacrosse players have received recognition from the Pilgrim League for last week’s performances.

Junior Josh Perry (Falmouth, MA) was named Player of the Week by the Pilgrim League and freshman Jim Martocchio (Simsbury, CT) was chosen as
Rookie of the Week.

Perry, an attacker had six goals and 11 assists in a week which saw PSC go 2-0. He had a 10-point game in a 25-6 victory over Norwich in which he
tallied three goals and seven assists. Perry also contributed to the PSC win over St. Michael’s, scoring three goals and four assists. He scored his 100th career

49 assists in just 22 games. He is now tied for third in total points in the Pilgrim League (24 goals, 36 assists, 60 points).

PSC’s other award this week goes to attacker Jim Martocchi. The Pilgrim League honored him for the second time this season as Rookie of the Week.
Martocchi scored 11 goals and one assist in PSC’s 2-0 week. He tallied six goals in the win over Norwich and added five more in the victory over St. Michael’s.
Martocchio scored three of his goals in the second quarter and two others in the third against St. Michael’s which saw PSC come from behind to win. This now
takes Martocchio to eighth overall in the league statistics, with 40 goals and eight assists.
