CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior Corinne Bain of the Harvard women's volleyball team has earned her second straight Ivy League Player of the Week honor after registering three consecutive double-doubles at the Service Academy Challenge.

Bain, who was also named the Ancient Eight's Player of the Week last Tuesday, shares this week's award with Yale's Kelsey Crawford. She now boasts seven player of the week accolades for her career, and has been recognized by the Ivy League with either a weekly award or inclusion on the Honor Roll 20 out of 24 weeks during her career, including 16 consecutive weeks dating back to her freshman season.

Bain posted three straight double-doubles at this past weekend's Service Academy Challenge, and was two kills shy of making it three straight triple-doubles. For the week she averaged 2.15 kills, 4.92 assists and 3.08 digs, while also contributing a total of nine aces and 11 blocks.

A native of Manhattan Beach, California, Bain also became the sixth student-athlete in program history to reach 100 career aces. With nearly two full seasons remaining, the junior is just 17 aces shy of matching Laura Mahon '08 for the program record.

Harvard is back in action this evening as it hosts New Hampshire to begin a nine-match homestand. First serve is schedule for 7 p.m. live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
