Ellie Crowell Named Both Ivy League Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week

Cornell went 2-0-1 last week, thanks in large part to the play of freshman Elizabeth Crowell (MTA 95 ECNL), who finished with seven points on two goals and three assists. Crowell only had one shot in the Big Red's scoreless draw with Buffalo, and then erupted in her team's two games over the weekend. She scored her first career goal in Cornell's eventual 2-1 overtime win over Marist, and then posted a goal and three assists to lead her team to a wild 5-4 win over Albany.
