The award was presented at today’s Class Day exercises.
Yale won a pair of matches over the weekend to clinch its fifth straight Ivy League title. Two players who had key roles in the sweep have been honored for their contributions. Mollie Rogers was named the league’s player of the week, while Kelsey Crawford earned rookie of the week honors.
Mollie Rogers has a long list of accomplishments on the court. She is a three-time first team All-Ivy selection, has helped the Bulldogs to three Ivy League championships and was the 2011 Ivy League Rookie of the Year just to name a few. Rogers has shined in the classroom as well, and has been rewarded by being named to the Capital One Academic All-District 1 second team.
