PHILADELPHIA – Through three weeks of the 2016 women’s lacrosse season, Nina Corcoran has presented herself as one of the most dangerous offensive players in the Ivy League. The University of Pennsylvania attacker has seven goals and 10 assists through four games, and was named Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week -- her second selection for an Ivy weekly award this season -- after a career week for the Quakers.
Corcoran had 10 points in two games for the Red and Blue during a pair of wins to earn her third career Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week award.
On Wednesday, she set a new career high with eight points in a 15-8 win over Rutgers. Corcoran tied her career best with six assists in the game – one off Penn’s single-game record. Her eight points were the most by a Quaker in a game since Erin Brennan had nine in 2012.
On Saturday, Corcoran followed with a pair of goals in Penn’s 8-3 win over Brown to open Ivy League play. Corcoran got the Quakers on the board in the game, tying the game at 1-1 before adding her team’s seventh goal late in the second half.
Corcoran leads the Ivy League with 10 assists and is third in points with 17 through four games this season.
Penn is on the road for its next three games, starting with a short jaunt to Saint Joseph’s on Tuesday at 1 p.m.
