Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Cross High Performance Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.

A senior, Greta Meyer, led her women's lacrosse team to two victories, while a freshman, Nejc Zupan, won two individual swimming Ivy titles. Meyer had an eight-point week to lead Dartmouth to wins at Vermont, 10-6, and at Ivy foe Yale, 9-7. Zupan won a pair of Ivy League titles in his first career championship meet.

Dartmouth Female Athlete of the Week:
Greta Meyer (Denver, Colo.), Women's Lacrosse, Senior, Attack
Senior attack Greta Meyer (Denver, Colo.) helped the women's lacrosse team to a 3-0 start with wins at Vermont, 10-6, and at Yale, 9-7, in the Ivy League opener for both teams. Meyer tallied five points on four goals and one assist at Vermont and followed that up with two goals and an assist at Yale. The senior was recently named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list for the top player in collegiate lacrosse, and is closing in on 100 career goals.

Dartmouth Male Athlete of the Week:
Nejc Zupan (Kamnik, Slovenia) Men's Swimming, Freshman, Freestyle/IM

Freshman Nejc Zupan (Kamnik, Slovenia) had one of the top performances of any of the Ivy swimmers this past weekend at the Ivy Championships. He was one of only two competitors to win multiple events, winning the 1650-yard freestyle and the 1000-yard freestyle. In the 1650, he finished at 15:14.83, breaking the previous school record of 15:35.60 held by Kevin Ellis '09. In his victory in the 1000, he ended a stretch of six straight years in which a Harvard swimmer won the event. He touched the wall at 9:03.37, setting a new Dartmouth record. The previous mark was held by Ellis at 9:21.07.
