PHILADELPHIA – Alex Condon has had a breakout sophomore season for the University of Pennsylvania women’s lacrosse team, and her efforts in Penn’s 8-7 win over Harvard have been recognized by the Ivy League with its Offensive Player of the Week award.
Condon had three goals in the Red and Blue’s win over the Crimson, scoring each of her goals in the second half as Penn improved to 3-1 in the Ivy League and took over sole possession of third place with three Ancient Eight games remaining.
Each of Condon’s goals gave the Quakers a two-goal lead in a tight game. After the Crimson got within one at 8-7 with 0:33 remaining, Condon picked up her second ground ball of the game with 0:09 left to seal the victory.
Condon has 22 goals this season, bursting onto the scene after spending most of her freshman season as a draw specialist for the Red and Blue. She has picked up her game of late, scoring 10 goals over her last three games. A two-way player, Condon is second on the team in goals, ground balls (18) and caused turnovers (14).
Penn is 9-3 overall this season and 3-1 in the Ivy League. Up next for the No. 17-ranked Quakers is their annual showdown with No. 11 Princeton in New Jersey on April 20 at 7 p.m. The Tigers are also 9-3, with a 4-0 record in Ivy play to sit in first place.
