Tim Whalen Named Ivy League Co-Rookie of the Week

Providence, RI- In his first career start, freshman Tim Whalen tallied a goal in the first minute of overtime last Thursday evening to help the Brown men's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over host Boston University.

Whalen, an Amston, Conn., native, has now started in two of the Bears' six games this season as Brown improved to 5-1-0 with a win against Lehigh on Sunday afternoon and earned its fifth shutout of the 2012 season.

Whalen is the first Bear to win an Ivy League weekly award this season and Brown's first Rookie of the Week since Alex Markes '15 (Valencia, CA) took home the award on Nov. 7, 2011.
