LHU’s Troy Teresak named PSAC Athlete of the Week
LOCK HAVEN – Senior goalkeeper Troy Teresak (Pompton Plains, N.J./Depaul Catholic) of the Lock Haven University men’s soccer team has been named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Athlete of the Week.
Teresak shares this week’s honors with Seton Hill’s Henrik Berg.
LHU men’s soccer team went 2-0 last week with both wins coming by way of upsets vs. top-25 teams. Teresak was a big reason behind those victories as he combined for 14 saves in back-to-back 1-0 shutouts.
Teresak and LHU opened the week with a huge PSAC match vs. Millersville. Teresak finished with four saves including two sensational stops in the second half as LHU knocked off No. 9 and previously unbeaten Millersville. The win also marked the first over perennial PSAC and NCAA Division II regional power Millersville since 2011. Ironically enough it’s also the last time LHU downed a top-15 team. Lock Haven’s last win over a top-10 team came in 2005.
On Saturday at No. 22 WV-Wesleyan, Teresak was the story as he turned in a 10-save effort in the 1-0 road win. The 10 saves are the fourth-most for a single-game in LHU since 1998.
LHU will return to the pitch on Wednesday October 4 when they travel to take on East Stroudsburg at 6:30 p.m.
