Field Hockey Weekly Release - Week 3

Updated Overall Stats (pdf)

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Another non-conference week saw positive results for the Ivy League field hockey squads, as Princeton kept on rolling with a pair of victories, 3-2 in overtime over No. 8 Penn State and 2-1 over Richmond. Thanks to their 4-0-0 record, including three wins over ranked opponents, the Tigers moved from No. 4 in the national rankings to No. 2, a program-best. Columbia also posted two wins last week, defeating Bucknell, 2-0, and setting a program record with eight goals in an 8-3 win over La Salle.

In its only game last week, Brown defeated Colgate, 4-2, behind a pair of goals from sophomore Clayton Christus. Penn split its two games last week, beating Liberty, 5-4, before falling to Appalachian State in overtime, 3-2. That same Nittany Lions squad that fell to Princeton had their hands full with Cornell, but the Big Red eventually lost, 2-0. Harvard also faced a tough schedule, including a 3-0 setback to No. 17 Boston College.

Ivy League play kicks off this week, as the eight teams will square off against each other on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, Penn travels to Cornell, Dartmouth heads to Princeton and Harvard hosts Yale, while on Sunday, Brown takes on Columbia.

CO-PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
A pair of seniors led their respective teams to a pair of victories each last week, as Columbia forward Gabby Kozlowski (Vorhees, N.J.) and Princeton midfielder Katie Reinprecht (North Wales, Pa.) each were instrumental in their teams’ 2-0-0 weeks.

Kozlowski finished with seven points on three goals and one assist as the Lions took down Bucknell and La Salle. She iced the victory for the Lions over the Bison with a goal in the 40th minute and then contributed to three of Columbia’s program-record eight goals against La Salle with two goals and an assist. For the season, Kozlowski leads Columbia with 10 points on four goals and two assists. She has 34 career goals, six shy of Columbia's career mark of 40 held by Nikki Campbell. The last four Ivy League weekly awards that Columbia has received have all gone to Kozlowski, who earned Player of the Week once each in 2011 and 2010 and Rookie of the Week in 2009.

Kozlowski’s Weekly Stats
2 GP, 3G, 1A, 7 Pts., 10 Shots, 7 SOG

Reinprecht finished with five points on two goals and one assist in Princeton’s 2-0-0 week that included a 3-2 victory over No. 8 Penn State. She scored the game’s first goal against the Nittany Lions. In the Tigers’ 2-1 win over Richmond, Reinprecht was a factor in both of her team’s goals, scoring the first and assisting on the second.

Reinprecht earns her third career Ivy League Player of the Week award and her first since Oct. 5, 2010, after taking last season off to train with the U.S. National Team. Her award gives Princeton back-to-back Player of the Week honors after senior Kathleen Sharkey earned the accolade last week. It marks the first time Princeton earned consecutive Player of the Week awards since Sharkey earned two-straight on Oct. 13 and 20, 2009.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
With 10 goals in two games for Columbia, there was more than enough to go around, and freshman Anna Scipioni (Palmyra, Pa.) made sure she got in on the action. She scored two goals on two shots during the week, including a goal apiece in each of the Lions’ two wins. Her score against Bucknell proved to be the eventual gamewinner and her tally against La Salle put Columbia up, 3-0.

Scipioni is Columbia’s first Rookie of the Week since Kozlowski took home the award on Oct. 27, 2009.
