Brooke Kumnick & Eduardo Colmenares Named WNE Spring Break Student-Athletes of the Week
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (March 22, 2016) - Senior second baseman Eduardo Colmenares (Caracas, Venezuela) of the baseball team and senior attack Brooke Kumnick (Granby, Conn.) of the women's lacrosse team have been named the Western New England University spring break student-athletes of the week for the March 11-20 period.

Colmenares helped lead the potent Golden Bear offense with a .455 batting average (15-for-33), three doubles, one triple, one home run and 13 RBI as Western New England opened its 2016 campaign with a perfect 8-0 record at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational. The senior also posted a team-high .697 slugging percentage while drawing three walks and scoring 13 runs.

Colmenares recorded multiple hits in six of eight contests in Florida, going 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in a 6-1 win over St. Joseph's (Maine) on March 12, before capping the trip with a double, a triple and four RBI in a 10-3 victory over Calvin (Mich.) last Friday.

Kumnick recorded ten points over Western New England's two contests last week at the National Training Center in Clermont, Fla., finishing with five in each game. The senior scored four goals and added an assist in a 15-9 loss to Rowan on Tuesday morning, before totaling three goals and two assists as the Golden Bears concluded their trip with a 17-6 victory over Fitchburg State on Thursday night.

Kumnick also registered five ground balls and six draw controls to go with a pair of caused turnovers over the course of the two games.

The undefeated baseball team (8-0) opens its home slate this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. against Brandeis, while the women's lacrosse team (4-2) heads to Mount Holyoke for a non-conference contest tomorrow night at 5 p.m.
