This week's Spartan Athlete of the Week is Men’s Lacrosse standout, Robert Ates!

Sophomore goalkeeper Robert Ates tied his season-high in saves in Saturday's upset victory over No. 4 Indiana Tech. The Warriors came in as the nation's No. 1 ranked offense, averaging nearly 18 goals per game. Ates held them to two first half goals and made several key saves in the second half to stifle any attempt at a comeback.
