PHILADELPHIA – Emily Rogers-Healion led then-No. 12 Penn past No. 16 Duke on Saturday, registering a career high in points as the Quakers downed the Blue Devils, 16-6.
Her efforts in Penn’s second win over a Top-20 opponent in 2017 earned her Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors.
Rogers-Healion had four goals and three assists as the Quakers dismantled Duke on Alumni Day, helping the Red and Blue erase an early deficit and storm back to pick up a crucial non-conference win – Penn’s sixth win outside the Ivy League in 2017.
Rogers-Healion is the fourth Quaker to earn an Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week award in 2017, and the 12th in the last 17 weeks dating back to the start of the 2016 season.
The Ivy League weekly award is the first career nod for Rogers-Healion. Her 12 assists are the most on the team and fourth in the Ivy League. Her 23 points this season are second on the squad.
Penn – up to No. 11 this week in the IWCLA Coaches Poll – is back in action on March 22 at No. 1 Maryland. First draw with the Terrapins is scheduled for 7 p.m.
