PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly award winners in men's lacrosse, and University of Pennsylvania freshman goalie Reed Junkin has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for a fourth time this season.
Junkin received his honor after an incredible performance in Penn's 11-4 win at Dartmouth on Saturday. He turned aside 17 shots while allowing just four goals, a staggering .809 save percentage. That was a season best.
Penn's win propelled the Quakers to a 4-2 record in Ivy play, the third time in the last six seasons they have finished 4-2 after doing it just once from 1990 to 2010 (in 2006). The Red and Blue have clinched an Ivy League Tournament spot for the third time in the last five years.
Prior to the ILT, Penn closes out the regular-season portion of its schedule with city rival Saint Joseph's on Tuesday. That game will face off at 7 p.m. and will take place on Penn's soccer field, Rhodes Field, due to Penn Relays taking Franklin Field offline.
