CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard freshman goalie Cynthia Tassopoulos has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week in an announcement from the league office Tuesday afternoon.

Tassopoulos registered 22 saves over the course of two non-conference games last week. She recorded 12 saves against No. 10 Massachusetts, holding the Minutewomen scoreless from the field. Four days later, Tassopoulos made 10 stops against Michigan. 

The Dallas native held both teams scoreless in the second halves and made a combined 15 saves, eight against UMass and seven against the Wolverines. 

Tassopoulos is the second Harvard freshman to earn Rookie of the Week honors this season. Teammate Emma Keller was recognized in the second week of the season.

Sophomore back Pilar Mayora was named to the Ivy League Honor Roll after making three defensive saves in the two non-league games.
