NEW HAVEN, Conn. – First-year attacker Olivia Penoyer (Manlius, N.Y.), who helped the Yale women's lacrosse team to a pair of wins last week, has been named Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week. The league announced the award on Monday.

Penoyer had a pair of goals in Yale's 17-11 win vs. UConn on Wednesday, then erupted for four goals and four assists in the Bulldogs' 17-10 win at Columbia Saturday. That was her seventh hat trick of the season.

Penoyer leads Yale in points (33-20-53), averaging 4.42 points per game -- tied for fifth in the Ivy League. She has eight straight multiple-point games. The streak started with a season-high nine points (5-4-9) in the 17-10 win vs. Niagara Mar. 7.

A graduate of Christian Brothers Academy, Penoyer is in Saybrook College. She is the second Yale player to earn an Ivy League weekly award this season, joining sophomore midfielder Sam Higgins (Shoreham, N.Y.) (Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week Mar. 11).

Yale visits No. 1 Boston College Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.
