PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly award winners in men's lacrosse, and University of Pennsylvania freshman goalie Reed Junkin doubled up as the co-Ivy League Player of the Week (along with Harvard's Devin Dwyer) and Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
Junkin has already won Ivy League Rookie of the Week three times this season. In winning both honors in the same week, he is the first Ivy player to do so since Princeton's Alex Hewit pulled the double on May 2, 2005.
The awards come after Junkin's 14-save performance in Penn's 9-6 win over Cornell on Saturday. It was the Quakers' first regular-season win over the Big Red since 2006, and pushed them to 2-0 in Ivy League play for the first time since 2008 and just the second time since 1984.
Junkin enters this week leading the nation in saves per game (13.57) and is fifth in save percentage (.586). The Quakers -- ranked 20th in this week's USILA national coaches poll -- are in action twice this weekend, hosting No. 6 Maryland on Tuesday at 4 p.m. before getting back into Ivy League play at No. 1 Yale on Saturday at noon. Both games will air on the Ivy League Digital Network, and Saturday's game in New Haven will also be broadcast for free on ESPN3.
