QUEENS, N.Y. - Sophomore Harry Kutner was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll, as announced by the league office today. The attacker scored three goals on Saturday to help lead St. John’s (1-0, 0-0) over Holy Cross (0-1, 0-0), 9-8.
A native of Garden City, N.Y., Kutner finished fourth on the team last year with 15 goals and 11 assists. This award comes as his second weekly honor as Kutner was named ECAC Player of the Week on March 23, 2009.
