Garcia Earns Third Ivy Player of the Week Award

The award is the fourth in a row for a Crimson student-athlete (Penny Ashford).

PRINCETON, N.J. – For the third time this season, senior forward Rachel Garcia has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week. Garcia also earned the honor for the weeks of Oct. 10-16 and Oct. 24-30.

Hailing from Duluth, Georgia, Garcia scored a double-overtime golden goal in the de facto Ivy League championship game against Columbia, sending the Crimson to a 2-1 victory. Also providing an assist in the game, Harvard clinched its third Ivy League title in the last four years, and pushed the team to its 16th NCAA Tournament in program history.

Garcia ended the regular season ranked fifth in the Ivy League with 17 points on six goals and five helpers. Harvard will learn its postseason matchup on Monday, Nov. 7 at 4:30, when the selection show will air live and for free on NCAA.com.
