Dimitrijevic Claims Second Straight PL Rookie of the Week Award

Nick Dimitrijevic earns his second PL Weekly Honor

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — American University men's soccer forward Nicholas Dimitrijevic earned his second straight Patriot League Corvias Rookie of the Week award after scoring twice at Holy Cross on Saturday.

Trailing 1-0 midway through the second half, Dimitrijevic scored on a header in the 80th minute. He then added the game-winner in the 97th minute after collecting a loose ball. 

Dimitrijevic leads the Eagles in goals with five, points with 10 and is tied for third in the Patriot League. He is one of five players to score multiple goals in a contest and one of two players to net a hat trick this season. 

Dimitrijevic is the first Eagle Since Matt Makowski in 2008 to earn multiple rookie weekly honors. Shawn Kuykendall (2001) and Salvatore Caccavale (2003) also claimed a pair of weekly rookie honors. Makowski is the only player of the four to win the PL Rookie of the Year after multiple weekly honors.

American will host Lehigh on Saturday afternoon as part of All-American Weekend at 2 p.m.
