Sydney Jenkins Debuts as Ivy Field Hockey Rookie of the Week

Ivy League Release

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--Freshman Sydney Jenkins of the Harvard field hockey team has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week after scoring goals in each of her first two collegiate games.

Jenkins netted her first collegiate goal less than halfway through her first game for Harvard. She moved through two defenders and scorched a shot into the top corner for a highlight-reel goal in the 34th minute of the Crimson's season-opening 4-0 shutout at Holy Cross Friday.

The Belle Mead, N.J., native helped the Crimson complete a weekend sweep with another tally in Sunday's home opener against Lafayette. Her goal gave Harvard a 2-1 edge in a game the Crimson eventually won, 3-2, in overtime.
