Lindroth Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Oct. 16, 2007

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Senior forward Cat Lindroth (Farmington, Conn.) was named Ivy League Player of the Week Tuesday, the third different Bulldog to earn the award in the last three weeks. Lindroth scored both goals, including the game-winner in double overtime, in Yale's thrilling 2-1 win over Harvard Saturday afternoon that gave the Bulldogs a six-game winning streak.

Lindroth's goal ended over 90 minutes of drama between Yale and Harvard on Saturday, part of the celebration of Yale field hockey's 35th anniversary. It was also the second time in a week Lindroth has scored the game-winning goal in double overtime. She performed the feat the previous Saturday in Yale's 1-0 win over Dartmouth.

Lindroth, who had an assist in Yale's loss to No. 18 Syracuse Sunday that snapped the winning streak, now has 10 points in the last five games, including four goals. She is second on the team in goals (seven) and points (16).

Lindroth follows sophomore goalkeeper Charlotte Goins (New Bern, N.C.) and sophomore forward Ashley McCauley (Rye, N.Y.), the two previous Ivy League Player of the Week winners for Yale.

Lindroth was a three-time team MVP at Miss Porter's School. She also made the New England All-Star team and was named all-league three times.

Freshman midfielder/back Marissa Waldemore (New Vernon, N.J.), who was the Ivy League Rookie of the Week Sept. 11, was named to the honor roll this past week for assisting on Lindroth's game-tying goal against Harvard. Waldemore is a five-time honor roll selection.

Yale (7-6, 2-2 Ivy) plays at Penn Friday at 7:15 p.m.
