Little East Conference weekly honors for three PSU Freshmen

Bolden, Dolecki, Goulet recognized for Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three Plymouth State University first-year student-athletes were recognized with top weekly honors by the Little East Conference (LEC) Monday for their performances in Panther outings last week.

            Freshmen Isaiah Bolden (Dover, N.H.) and Evan Dolecki (New Hartford, Conn./ Northwestern)  were named LEC Men's Rookie Track Athlete and Rookie Field Athlete of the Week, respectively, and classmate Josh Goulet (Nashua, N.H./South) was tabbed the LEC Baseball Rookie of the Week. Bolden and Dolecki turned in top performances in the Amherst College Spring Fling, while Goulet had a strong weekend in LEC doubleheaders at Rhode Island College and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

            A 5-8 sprinter, Bolden took third place in the 110-meter high hurdles at the Amherst meet, finishing in a time of 16.22 seconds. His time meets the New England Division III Championships qualifying standard as well as the LEC Championships qualifying mark. Bolden also finished 10th in the long jump, with an LEC-qualifying mark of 5.73 meters (18'9.75").

            A 6-1 jumper, Dolecki captured a pair of third-place finishes at Amherst in the long and triple jump events. He finished third in the long jump with a mark of 6.41 meters (21'0.5"), which reaches the New England Division III Championships qualifying mark, and he took third in the triple jump with a personal-best performance of 12.47 meters (40'11").

            A 6-1 outfielder, Goulet batted .364 (4-for-11) with four walks, two doubles, three runs scored, four RBI, and eight stolen bases in eight attempts in PSU's 3-1 weekend. He went 3-for-3 with a double, four RBI and two stolen bases in the first game win over Rhode Island College before stealing three bases in the nightcap. Goulet walked twice and stole two bases and scored two runs in the opener at UMass Dartmouth, and doubled and stole a base in the nightcap.
