KINGSTON, R.I. -- Freshman Matthew Dionne earned his first Rookie of the Week honor on Monday, the Atlantic 10 Conference announced.

Dionne recorded a season best and New England qualifying 1.99m (6' 6.25") in the high jump this past Friday at the Lafayette/Rider Winter Games in New York City. He placed third of 13.

This is the second week in a row that a Ram has earned Rookie of the Week in the Atlantic 10. Jalen Young earned the honor for the second time this season last week after his Charles Torpey Tribute performance.
