This week's athlete of the week is Rudy Herakovich '21. Rudy is the goalie for the varsity boys' soccer team and this is his first year at Walsingham.
Last week, Rudy and his teammates traveled for a TCIS game on Tuesday at Norfolk Christian. After falling 4-2 to Norfolk Christian earlier in the season, Rudy and the Trojans' defense played an outstanding game and held their opponents scoreless. Several outstanding saves by Rudy kept the game all square and ultimately resulted in a 0-0 draw.
On Thursday, the Trojans hosted Portsmouth Christian. This time, the Trojans' offense was able to find the back of net early and often and took a quick 3-0 halftime lead. The Trojans scored twice in the second half and Rudy and the Trojans' defense kept a clean sheet for the second consecutive game on the way to a 5-0 victory.
The Trojans now sit at 3-5-2 on the season. Rudy and the Trojans have now held their opponent scoreless three times this year.
Next up, the Trojans will host Catholic High School on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m.
Congratulations Rudy, and Go Trojans!!
