CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's volleyball's Corinne Bain has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week, marking the fourth time this season she has earned the award and the second time in as many weeks.
Bain, who has also been named the conference's Player of the Week once, averaged 2.62 kps, 5.62 aps and 3.50 dps while hitting .378 in a 1-1 week for the Crimson. The Manhattan Beach, Calif. native first took to the court on Friday against Princeton, and helped guide Harvard to a .330 hitting percentage while dishing out 20 assists. Bain added seven kills and a season-high .583 hitting percentage herself, and also chipped in 15 digs. On Saturday, Bain posted her fifth triple-double with a 14-kill, 25-assist, 13-dig performance that also included a season-high four blocks.
Bain's five triple-doubles rank second in the NCAA among freshmen while her 13 double-doubles are good for fourth. She has already set a new single-season mark at Harvard for service aces with 46, and ranks sixth in the nation with 0.54 aces per set.
The Crimson will close out its regular season this weekend on the road as it travels to Columbia Friday, Nov. 15, and Cornell Saturday, Nov. 16.
