NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- For the third time this season, sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Terroso (York, Pa.) of the Yale field hockey team has been named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week. Terroso made 11 saves in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win vs. Columbia. The league announced the award on Monday.
Terroso's 11 saves Saturday match her season high. That total does not even include the three stops she made during the shootout, which ended once Yale scored for the third time on four attempts while Columbia was held scoreless. Terroso has stopped at least 88 percent of the shots she has faced five times in the last seven games. For the season she has a .748 save percentage and a 2.13 goals-against average.
A first team All-Ivy League selection last season, 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 concludes its season this Saturday at Brown. The Bulldogs are seeking their 10th win, which would mark the first time since the 2011 Ivy League Championship season that the team has reached double digits in wins.
