HANOVER, N.H. - Dartmouth junior Liz Calby has been named the Ivy League Women's Lacrosse Co-Offensive Player of the Week as announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.
Calby scored two goals and added two assists in each of the Big Green's two games played last week against Boston University and No. 2 Florida.
Through five games played this season, Calby leads the team in points (20) and assists (8), while ranking second in goals (12). The Darien, Conn., native entered the 2013 campaign with a combined nine assists from her first two years in a Green and White jersey, a figure she has nearly matched in the early stages of her junior season.
Calby has scored at least two goals in each contest this spring and is on pace to surpass her career high in point production of 25, set last season in 17 games played. She is just five points back of that figure this spring in 12 fewer games to date.
This marks the second time in 2013 that a Dartmouth player has earned the Offensive Player of the Week honors after Hana Bowers was tabbed with the accolade following a season-opening win at Oregon. Prior to Bowers' recognition, a Big Green player had not received the honor since March 2011.
Calby shares the title with Cornell's Lindsay Toppe, while Penn's Lucy Ferguson was named the Defensive Player of the Week.
Senior Courtney Bennett was tabbed to the weekly honor roll after posting career highs of six draw controls and five ground balls against BU and another four draws against the Gators at home on Saturday.
