Bain Receives Ivy League Player of the Week Honors

Bain registered her seventh career triple-double at Georgia (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's volleyball's Corinne Bain has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after helping the Crimson to a 2-1 record at the Benson Hospitality Invitational.

Bain led Harvard in kills (2.64), assists (6.82) and aces (0.82) while ranking second in digs (2.36), and third in hitting percentage (.333) and blocks (0.55). This marks the first Ivy League Player of the Week award for Bain this season after collecting one player of the week and five rookie of the week honors last year. She shares this week's honor with Kendall Peterkin of Princeton.

Bain opened the weekend with a 12-kill, 23-assist double-double as the Crimson fell to NC State, 3-1. On Saturday, Harvard rebounded to defeat Georgia on its home floor, 3-1, as Bain registered the seventh triple-double of her career with 14 kills, 29 assists and a career-high 17 digs. The sophomore hit .385 against the Bulldogs while adding two aces and three blocks, before capping the weekend off with 23 assists and five aces against UNC Asheville.

Harvard will return to the court this weekend as it takes on local foes Northeastern and Boston College in the third annual New England Challenge. The Crimson will first take on Northeastern Saturday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. before hosting Boston College Sunday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m. live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
