Wachira Named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

Wachira's goal was the deciding factor against Yale (Gil Talbot).

PRINCETON, N.J. – Earning her first-career weekly award after her game-winner against Yale, first-year Jillian Wachira of the women's soccer team has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.

Wachira netted her first-career goal in a 1-0 victory over Yale, while also helping the team pitch its third-straight shutout along the back line. The Plainsboro, New Jersey native dribbled between a pair of Bulldog defenders before firing home the game-winner into the top-right corner.

Wachira joins classmate Sophie Hirst in earning a Rookie of the Week honor this season, and Harvard moved to 1-0-1 in Ivy play with the win.
