NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Melissa Gavin, who scored and added an assist in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Dartmouth, has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.

Gavin got Yale on the board first at 19:08 when she settled feed and blasted a left-footed shot into the top left corner from 20 yards out. She then assisted on the Bulldogs' second goal a little over 10 minutes later.

Gavin has started all 11 games for Yale, leads the team with four goals and shares the lead with 10 points.
