NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the second consecutive week, Notre Dame men's soccer player Shane Walton (San Diego, Calif.) has been named the BIG EAST Conference Rookie of the Week.

The freshman forward figured in all three of the Irish goals last week as Notre Dame posted a 1-0-1 mark. Walton tallied the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Northwestern and in a 2-2 tie with Pittsburgh had a goal and an assist. Against the Panthers, he scored the game-tying goal and had the assist on the score which put the Irish up 2-1 in the contest.

Walton leads Notre Dame in scoring with five goals and three assists. He has scored a goal in all four games this season and has had two multiple-point games (Valparaiso and Pittsburgh).

Walton also was selected as the league's top rookie last week after scoring three goals and dishing off two assists in Irish victories over Valparaiso and Syracuse.
