Ali Savage Named Ivy League Field Hockey Co-Player of the Week
PRINCETON, N.J. – For the third time this season and the sixth time in her career, Dartmouth’s Ali Savage has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Penn’s Carly Sokach.
Savage’s most recent accolade comes thanks to her three-goal, seven-point performance Sunday against Columbia in a 6-2 Big Green victory.
The hat trick was Savage’s fourth of the season and sixth of her career, tying both of Dartmouth’s single-season and career program records for the goal-scoring feat. Currently, Savage has 38 points on 15 goals and eight assists, ranking first in the league in scoring and second in both tallies and helpers.
Those 38 points through 14 games leave the Australian native four shy of the program’s single-season record of 42 set by Kelly Hood ’12 in the fall of 2009 with three scheduled contests remaining on the schedule.
In scoring three times against the Lions, Savage also moved into fifth place all-time at Dartmouth with 37 in her career, while her 91 points rank fourth amongst all Big Green players in more than four decades of play.
In addition to Sokach and Savage, Princeton’s Cat Caro was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
Savage was previously named the conference’s top player on Sept. 10 and Oct. 8 (Co).
Dartmouth will split time this weekend between Cambridge and Hanover. The Big Green will play Harvard at 1 p.m. on Saturday in the team’s Ivy League road finale, before returning home to host New Hampshire on Sunday at 2 p.m.
