PHILADELPHIA - Junior midfielder Allison Ambrozy has been named the Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week after her outstanding play in No. 2 Penn's 10-8 comeback winat No. 7 Syracuse on Sunday.
Ambrozy is the fifth different Penn player to earn an Ivy League player of the week honor this year. The Quakers have earned seven honors overall.
In addition, junior goalkeeper Sarah Waxman was named to the Ivy League weekly honor roll.
Ambrozy, who shares the offensive honor with Princeton's Kathleen Miller, scored twice in Penn's win Sunday, and both goals came in the second half. More important than her goals, however, was her draw-taking skill, as she helpedthe Quakersto a 15-5 advantage in the category as she recorded five of her own. Ambrozy won all but one draw to secure possession down the stretch during Penn'sfive-goal comeback.
Waxman was a key component both defensively and offensively in Penn's 10-8 comeback win over No. 7 Syracuse on Sunday. Defensively, she made five saves and held the Orange just three goals in the second half, but the junior also sparked Penn's five-goal comeback late in the second half with two 50-yard clearances that led directly to Penn goals. It is Waxman's second honor roll selection this season, and she has also earned defensive player of the week honors twice.
The Quakers will host Boston University in the NCAA First Round on Sunday, May 13 at noon at Penn'sRhodes Field.
