BOULDER, Colo. – The Black Knights of West Point returned to the pitch this past weekend when the team hosted Dartmouth to a 56-5 beat down at the Anderson Rugby Complex. The clinical performance saw several Army players show strongly, but it was the hat trick performance by Luke Heun that earned D1A Player of the Week recognition.
Heun, a quick-footed winger from Palmer, Alaska, needed just two minutes to find the try zone, and went back for seconds in the 14th-minute. After building a 51-5 lead, the junior Economics major put an exclamation mark on his afternoon by completing his hat trick with only a few minutes left to play.
Heun and his teammates are off this weekend, but takeoff for Utah next week where they will play BYU on March 17 and the University of Utah on March 19.
