The Caledon East, Ontario native began her week with a bang, tallying her first career points (the game-winning goal and two assists) in Harvard's 7-3 rout of Holy Cross on Tuesday. She is now on a three-game scoring streak after recording a goal in Friday's matchup and an assist on Saturday against No. 1/1 Wisconsin.

On Friday, Harvard will celebrate Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day. All faculty and staff are invited to join an ice cream social on the concourse during the game. Friday's match will also be broadcast on NESN.
Saturday will be Harvard's annual Community Day. All residents of Cambridge, Allston and Brighton will receive free tickets to the game.
