The Bates Student - October 31, 1997


Lundman, Rosenthal named Bates Athletes of the Week
A pair of defensive standouts, women's soccer fullback Julie Lundman of Worthington, Ohio, and football linebacker Bob Rosenthal of Walpole, Mass., have been named Bates Female and Male Athlete of the Week for the week of October 20.

Lundman, a three-year starter for coach Jim Murphy's women's soccer team, played a key role in Bates' 2-0 win over New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) foe Connecticut College. Her primary task on the afternoon was to mark forward Kim-An Hernandez of Conn. College, the leading scorer in the NESCAC. Lundman, a junior, not only kept Hernandez off the board, but scored the game-winning goal with 10 minutes remaining in the game. The goal was Lundman's first of the season and second of her career. The Bobcats are 6-4 and ranked sixth in New England. They host Maine-Farmington on Wed., Oct. 22, and travel to Colby on Sat., Oct. 25.

Rosenthal, the third-leading tackler for coach Rick Pardy's football team, was named NESCAC Defensive Co-Player of the Week for his performance against Middlebury on Saturday. A first-year player, he led the Bobcats with 16 tackles, 10 of them solo. Rosenthal had 1.5 sacks, the first of which forced a fumble that he recovered and returned 37 yards for Bates' first defensive touchdown of the season. Rosenthal now has 54 tackles on the season, 16 of them unassisted. The Bobcats next take on Colby-Bates-Bowdoin rival Colby in Waterville on Sat., Oct. 25.
