Ivy League Release

After a career-high seven-point day in Penn's 12-8 win over Yale, Caroline Bunting set another career milestone with her first selection as Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week. The senior was one of two Ivy Leaguers bestowed the honor this week, joined by Cornell's Caroline Salisbury. This marks the second week in a row that Penn has been honored by the Ivy League. Last week, goalkeeper Lucy Ferguson was named Defensive Player of the Week.

Bunting was the catalyst for the Quakers in their win over the Bulldogs, scoring three goals and assisting on a career-high four more. All four of her assists came in the second half, part of a five-point final thirty minutes.

The seven points were a breakout performance for the attacker as Bunting entered the weekend with just two goals in the first four games of the season. After the standout day, she sits third on the team with nine points.

Bunting and the Quakers are home to take on Vanderbilt on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at Franklin Field.
