PRINCETON, N.J. -- Brown continues to re-write
its records book.
The Bears (2-0 Ivy) extended their record-setting start to the season by another game, improving to 7-0 with an 11-8 win at Colorado. The Bears are the first Ivy team to start a season 7-0 since 2009, when Penn won its first 13 games.
The 2014 Quakers (5-2, 2-0 Ivy), meanwhile, are tied with Brown in the Ivy standings but doesn’t return to League play until April 12. Penn split its two games last week, falling to No. 2 Maryland, 15-5, before rebounding with an 11-10 win at Vanderbilt.
Harvard (4-3, 2-1 Ivy) moved into third-place in the conference standings after holding off Yale (5-2, 1-2 Ivy), 11-8. Freshman Marisa Romeo scored a career-high five goals in the win for the Crimson.
Dartmouth (4-3, 1-1 Ivy) picked up its first League victory of the season with a 12-9 win over Columbia (2-4, 0-3 Ivy) at home, behind a five-point effort (four goals, one assist) from sophomore Jaclyn Leto. The Big Green is tied with Cornell (4-3, 1-1 Ivy) in the standings.
Princeton (4-3, 0-1 Ivy) extended its winning streak to three games with a pair of victories last week, 14-7 at USC and 16-9 at San Diego State.
Seven of the Ancient Eight are in action this week, including a pair of Ivy games for the Tigers, who will travel north to play Columbia on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m., before hosting Cornell on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
Seven games will be streamed on The Ivy League® Digital Network this week, including both Princeton’s contests against the New York schools as well as No. 15 Stanford at Cornell on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. and No. 5 Boston College at Harvard on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Entering this week, Princeton freshman Anna Doherty (Bernardsville, N.J.) had eight goals in five games. She almost reached that mark in just two contests last week, finding the back of the net seven times to lead the Tigers to a 2-0 week. Doherty posted a career-high six points in Princeton’s 14-7 win at Southern California, scoring a personal-best five goals. She then tallied twice in her team’s 16-9 win at San Diego State and has now scored at least one goal in each of Princeton’s seven games this season.
Doherty is the second Tiger to be named Offensive Player of the Week, joining Erin Slifer (March 17).

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth senior goalie Kristen Giovanniello (Old Brooksville, N.Y.) did everything she could to keep the Big Green in the game at No. 4 Florida, stopping a season-best 15 shots in a 14-7 loss. It marked the second-best single game saves total of her career, trailing only the 17 she stopped against Vermont on March 14, 2012. She then followed that with 12 saves and a career-high tying seven ground balls in a 12-9 win over Columbia that gave the Big Green its first Ivy win of the season.
Giovanniello earns her seventh career Defensive Player of the Week honor. It’s the fourth-straight year she has earned at least one Defensive Player of the Week honor.
