Wolfpack’s Martinez lands on College Soccer News’ National Team of the Week
Junior forward/midfielder Alex Martinez was named to the prestigious College Soccer News National Team of the Week for his efforts in N.C. State’s pair of wins over the weekend at the John Rennie Nike Invitational. Martinez had four points on a goal and two assists in the Wolfpack’s 6-0 rout of Delaware on Friday, then scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win over Santa Clara on Sunday. He was also named MVP of the tournament, and now leads the ACC in points with 8.
Martinez’s efforts allowed N.C. State to become the first four-win team in the conference over the weekend. The Wolfpack will face UNC-Greensboro on the road Friday night in their next match.
