Woodlands Credit Union Athletes of the Week - Delaney & Pierre
Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Woodlands Credit Union Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.
Corey Delaney, (Chatham, N.J.) Fr., Women's Soccer
Freshman Corey Delaney (Chatham, N.J) scored her first collegiate goal against Fordham (Sept. 16). The goal give the Big Green freshman four points on the season after she tallied two assists in Dartmouth's 3-1 win over Maine. Her efforts in Dartmouth's wins over New Hampshire and Fordham earned her co-Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors, the first for a Big Green player since the 2010 season.
Dominick Pierre, a 5-11, 215-pound native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., started for just the second time in his career - topping 100 yards both times - after spending his first two seasons as an understudy to All-American Nick Schwieger, Dartmouth's all-time leading rusher. A consistent force out of the backfield that was never stopped behind the line of scrimmage on Saturday, Pierre took the ball 13 times in the first half for 86 yards and a touchdown, then 13 more times in the second half for 84 yards and another score. He capped the Big Green's first offensive possession with a sweep around the left side for a seven-yard touchdown run and a 14-0 lead. In the fourth quarter, Pierre put the finishing touch on the victory with a one-yard dive into the end zone. The Calvary Christian Academy product also caught a pair of passes for four yards, giving him 174 all-purpose yards on the night.
