Dwyer Earns Second Straight Rookie of the Week Honor

Dwyer totaled nine points as the Crimson went 2-0 last week (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Devin Dwyer was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week on Monday, marking the second straight week he has garnered the award.

Dwyer helped the Crimson to a 2-0 week beginning with an 18-8 victory at Quinnipiac on Tuesday. The freshmen matched his career-high with six points against the Bobcats, scoring two goals and adding four assists to go with two ground balls. Dwyer then tallied three assists on Saturday as Harvard defeated No. 16/14 Penn in overtime, 8-7.

The Garden City, N.Y. native has registered at least one point in all but one contest this season and has turned in multiple points on nine occasions. Dwyer currently leads the team with 38 points, fifth best in the Ivy League, while his team-leading 23 assists rank second in the conference. He earned his first rookie of the week honor last Monday following his five-point performance (2g, 3a) versus No. 2/2 Cornell.

This marks Harvard's third weekly award from the Ancient Eight this season after Harry Krieger was named player of the week March 25. The senior goalkeeper stopped 28-of-39 shots in wins over Bryant and Dartmouth, and posted a .718 save percentage with a 5.50 goals against average for the week.

Dwyer and the Crimson return to action Friday, April 19 at No. 13/12 Princeton. First face off is scheduled for 6 p.m. live on ESPNU.
