Terroso Named Ivy Defensive Player of the Week

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- After leading the Yale field hockey team to a pair of wins this past weekend, sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Terroso (York, Pa.) has been named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week. This is the second time this season she has earned that honor. The league announced the award on Monday.

A first team All-Ivy League selection last season, Terroso has been on a roll of late. She made a season-high 11 saves in Saturday's 4-3 win at Dartmouth, then added seven on Sunday in a 3-1 win vs. Quinnipiac. Her save percentage in the last four games is .848.

Terroso is a member of Davenport College and a graduate of Dallastown Area High School. One of her club coaches, Anne Lehman Dillman '93 with Lanco Premier Field Hockey Club, played field hockey at Yale and is the mother of Yale first year midfielder Théodora Dillman (Lancaster, Pa.).

Yale hosts Penn and Lehigh at Johnson Field this weekend.
