Navy's Wickham racks up fourth Patriot League award this season
R.J. Wickham was named the Patriot League's Goalkeeper of the Week, becoming the first Navy player to collect that honor four times in a single season.
Wickham made nine saves to help the Midshipmen edge No. 15 Johns Hopkins, 9-8, in overtime and end a 36-game losing streak to the Blue Jays. Wickham registered nine of his saves in the third and fourth quarters and the overtime period.
The sophomore ranks second among Division I goalies with a .615 save percentage and ninth with a 8.35 goals-against average. Wickham has made 174 saves this season, which is the 13th most in school history. He is just two saves away from breaking into the top 10 and 26 stops from becoming only the fourth player to record 200 saves in a season.
