PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League conference office has announced its players of the week for women's soccer, and Penn sophomore forward Jessica Fuccello has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week.
This is the third time Fuccello has been honored by the conference office.
Fuccello earned the honor this week after scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 win at Harvard Saturday afternoon. The win clinched Penn's first-ever outright Ivy League championship, and the goal was Fuccello's Ivy-leading 11th of the season. She has 11 goals and 26 points this season, both of which are tied for fifth on Penn's single season list with Jill Callaghan in 1998.
Only a sophomore, Fuccello has 20 career goals which places her fifth on Penn's all-time list.
Penn (13-3-1, 6-1-0) has completed the regular season; however, by winning the Ivy title the Quakers have earned a bid into the NCAA College Cup. They will find out their postseason fate Monday night at approximately 8 p.m., when the 64-team field is announced on ESPNews.
