FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Joe Rodrigues and Emily Lombardi have been named the Garden Catering Student-Athletes of the Month for their performances in the month of April.

Rodrigues, a junior, led the Stags in scoring over the final month of the season. The midfielder had 13 goals in five conference games for Fairfield. He posted four multi-goal games including a three goal performance in the win over then ranked No. 15 Towson and a career-high five goals in a one score loss to Drexel. His no-look-back-handed tally in the fourth quarter against the Dragons was voted as the Lax Sports Network Play of the Week. Rodrigues' 13 total goals in conference play was also just one shy for the league lead in CAA play.

Lombardi, a freshman, was recently named to the All-MAAC Second Team at No. 6 singles after finishing the conference season at 6-1 against league opponents. And with partner Karen McKeough at No. 2 doubles they posted a 4-2 record in league play. The freshman finished the season strong, going 5-2 in the final month of the season. She posted four straight-set wins over Monmouth, Niagara, Marist, and Sacred Heart. And pulled out a three-set win over Siena in the final match of the regular season.
