Nov. 8, 2004
PHILADELPHIA, PA - George Washington sophomore Joseph Siegel was named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week on Monday, Nov. 8 for his performance in the Colonials', 4-0, shutout at Richmond on Nov. 6. It is the first time he has garnered the league's weekly honor.
Siegel is the second consecutive GW performer to win the award, joining junior goalkeeper Derek Biss, who earned the honor on Nov. 1. It is the first time since 2002 that two different Colonials have won the award in the same season.
Siegel tallied a career-best five points (two goals, one assist) in GW's triumph at Richmond. His performance helped the Colonials clinch a spot in the A-10 Conference Championship, which the Colonials will host on Nov. 11-14 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
Siegel has started 10 games for GW in 2004 and ranks fourth on the squad with nine points.
The Colonials (7-8-3, 6-3-2 Atlantic 10) are seeded fourth in the upcoming championship and will take on fifth-seeded Rhode Island (12-7-1, 6-4-1 Atlantic 10) at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11.
