Krieger Nabs Ivy League Player of the Week Honors

Krieger earned his first career Ivy League Player of the Week honor after going 2-0 a week ago (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harry Krieger has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after backstopping the Harvard men's lacrosse team to a pair of victories last week.

Krieger recorded a total of 28 saves while allowing just 11 goals in wins over Bryant (7-5) and Dartmouth (9-6). The senior stopped a season-high 15 shots on Wednesday while giving up just one first half goal to the Bulldogs, and added 13 saves and four ground balls on Saturday against the Big Green. Krieger finished the week with a .718 save percentage and a 5.50 goals against average.

Krieger currently ranks third in the Ivy League with an 8.29 goals against average and leads the Ancient Eight with a .586 save percentage and 11.71 saves per game. He has played every minute in goal this season for the Crimson and sports a 4-3 record.

This marks the first Ivy League Player of the Week award of Krieger's career. He was named the conference's rookie of the week once as a freshman and has been tabbed the NEILA Player of the Week three times, including once already this season.
