Weghorst Collects Ivy League Player of the Week Honors

Weghorst earned her first Ivy Player of the Week honor and sixth this season for the Crimson (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard volleyball's Grace Weghorst has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after helping the Crimson to a share of Ancient Eight title.

Weghorst averaged 3.86 kps, 2.71 dps and hit .344 as Harvard defeated Columbia and Cornell this past weekend to clinch a share of the program's first Ivy League championship since 2004. She scored 11 kills while hitting at a .333 clip on Friday versus the Lions, and recorded her fifth double-double of the season with 16 kills, 12 digs and a .351 percentage against the Big Red.

This marks the first player of the week award of Weghorst's career and sixth for the Crimson this season. Corinne Bain earned the award four times, with Caroline Walters also picking up one for herself. Weghorst shares this week's honor with Yale's Mollie Rogers.

Harvard and Yale will meet Friday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Malkin Athletic Center in a one-match playoff to decide who will represent the Ivy League in the NCAA tournament. The match can be seen live online via the Ivy League Digital Network.
