Semmens Named Ivy Player Of The Week

PHILADELPHIA - For the second time this season, senior Elizabeth Semmens has honored by the Ivy League for her performance over the weekend.

Semmens was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week after leading the Quakers to at least a share of the Ivy League title with their two wins over the weekend. Semmens averaged 3.62 kills per set and 4.50 digs per set in leading Penn to two victories.

In a 3-0 win over Columbia, she had 12 kills, 11 digs and 2 total blocks. She followed it up versus Cornell with 17 kills and a career-high 25 digs as the Quakers came back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2. The win combined with a Yale loss earlier in the day gave Penn at least a share of the Ivy League title.

The Red and Blue return to action on Friday when they host Harvard at 7 p.m.
