PHILADELPHIA --Nina Corcoran's efforts in No. 16 Penn's overtime win over then-No. 8 Northwestern were recognized by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Association on Wednesday evening with an ILWCA National Player of the Week Award selection.
Each week, the IWLCA selects two players from each division as Players of the Week, and Corcoran earned her first IWLCA National Player of the Week honor after scoring the overtime game-winner against the Wildcats while adding four assists as Penn scored a 14-13 win in Philadelphia.
Corcoran's four assists on Sunday gave her 100 for her career and made her just the second player in Penn Women's Lacrosse history to reach the 100 assist mark -- and the first since Sherry Marcantonio from 1980-83.
Corcoran and her eight fellow seniors will celebrate Senior Day on Saturday, taking on Columbia at 3 p.m. at Franklin Field as part of a doubleheader with the men's team. At noon, the men will take on No. 3 Brown. A "Quaker Cook-Out" for students will take place at Franklin Field during both games. Students can earn Penn Rewards and cheer on the Red and Blue under the scoreboard at field level.
