Bain Nabs Third Ivy League Player of the Week Honor

Bain recorded back-to-back triple-doubles at Brown and Yale (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard volleyball's Corinne Bain has named the Ivy League Player of the Week for a third time this season, conference officials announced Tuesday.

Bain posted back-to-back triple-doubles over the weekend as Harvard defeated Brown and Yale to move into a tie for first place in the Ivy League standings. The sophomore turned in 11 kills, 21 assists and a career-high 23 digs on Friday at Brown, and hit .348 while adding five service aces against the Bears. Bain then recorded 10 kills, 25 assists and 15 digs in a sweep of Yale, hitting .400 for the match.

A native of Manhattan Beach, Calif., Bain has tallied eight triple-doubles on the year and boasts 14 for her career. This marks the third time this season and fourth time overall that she has earned Ivy League Player of the Week honors.

Harvard will enter the weekend tied with the Bulldogs atop the conference standings with an 8-2 record, 15-4 overall. The Crimson's 15 wins are the most for the program since 2004 while its current seven-match win streak is the program's longest since taking a record 13 in-a-row in 1997.

Harvard will remain on the road next weekend with trips to Princeton and Penn before returning home to close out the regular season against Columbia and Cornell. All four of Harvard's remaining matches can be seen live online via the Ivy League Digital Network.
