This marks the second time a Penn player has received the Ivy League award this season; senior Marin McDermott was Player of the Week on Sept. 5. Barth is the first Penn player honored by the ECAC this season.
Barth's honorsare well-deserved. She began the week by tallying a goal and three assists in just one half of play, helping the Quakers roll to an 8-0 win over NJIT. The three assists tied a school record. She followed that up by scoring both goals in Penn's 2-0, Ivy League win over Dartmouth on Saturday. Barth leads the Red and Blue in assists (5) and points (17), and is second on the team with six goals.
At 11-2-0 this season, Penn is off to the best start in program history (since 1991). The Quakers have tied a program record with six wins in a row, and will look to keep the good times rolling on Saturday when they host Yale in an important Ivy League match at 5 p.m. Both Penn and Yale are 3-1-0 in the league, tied for second behind Harvard (3-0-1).
