CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior Corinne Bain of the Harvard women's volleyball team has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week, marking her sixth career Player of the Week award and the 11th time she has received a weekly award from the conference office.

A two-time unanimous All-Ivy League first team selection, Bain has been recognized by the Ivy League with either a weekly award or inclusion on the Honor Roll 19 out of 23 weeks during her career, including 15 consecutive weeks dating back to her freshman season.

A native of Manhattan Beach, California, Bain averaged 2.44 kills, 5.67 assists and 3.44 digs per set over the weekend en route to inclusion on the Harvard Invitational All-Tournament team. She opened the year with her 17th career triple-double versus Rutgers, posting 11 kills, 24 assists and 10 digs, and contributed a double-double against Illinois State the following day with 12 assists and 12 digs. Bain also added 15 assists and nine digs to close out the tournament versus Long Beach State.
