Yale field hockey freshman Trish Bissett (Vancouver, B.C. ) was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week. Bissett had a goal and an assist within less than three minutes of each other in the second half as the Bulldogs lost a 5-4 overtime decision to defending Ivy champion Princeton. Bissett's goal came after she received a pass from Jana Halfon (Richmond, Va.) and ran the ball down the field to score. Her assist 2:39 later pulled Yale to within one. Prior to Yale, Bissett was co-captain of the British Columbia Under-18 team and the BC Under-18 touring squad that traveled to Ireland. She was also a member of the Canadian Junior National squad.
