PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly award winners in men's lacrosse, and the University of Pennsylvania has swept them as junior goalkeeper Jimmy Sestilio was named the Ivy League Player of the Week and freshman midfielder Kevin McGeary was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
They earned the honors for their roles in Penn's 14-11 win at No. 10 Brown on Saturday, which pushed the Quakers' record to 4-6 overall, 1-3 in Ivy League play.
Sestilio -- who was also named the ECAC Division I South Defensive Player of the Week -- came up with a career-high 17 saves in the contest, including nine in a row after allowing Brown its 10th goal early in the third quarter. The Bears' 11th goal did not come until 22 minutes later, and by that time the Quakers had turned a 10-10 tie into a 14-10 lead. McGeary, meanwhile, scored a pair of goals for his third multi-goal game this season.
Penn is in action at Harvard on Saturday at noon; in addition to being on the Ivy League Digital Network, fans can watch the game nationwide on TV on FOX College Sports.
