Rachelle Snyder Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Philadelphia – University of Pennsylvania senior Rachelle Snyder was named Ivy League Women’s Soccer Player of the Week this afternoon after recording seven points in two games helping Penn extend its unbeaten steak to four games.

“Rachelle has really stepped up her game and really come to play this year,” Head Coach Darren Ambrose said. “She is becoming more and more dangerous in our attacks and we look forward to her continuing her excellent play.”

In Penn’s 3-0 win over Ivy League foe Cornell, the midfielder scored back-to-back second half goals. Snyder opened up the week with three points in Penn’s 2-1 victory over crosstown rival La Salle on Sept. 29. She recorded the first goal of the game against the Explorers and then assisted on the game-winner in double overtime.

She is currently second on the team in scoring with 11 points (four goals and three assists). For her career she is tied for third on the Penn all-time assist list with 15 and seventh in career points (47).

Snyder and the Quakers (4-4-1, 2-0-0) are back in action on Saturday, Oct. 9 as they host Columbia at noon.
