Ball control is the name of the game this week in Dartmouth Athletics. Sophomore Kathryn Giroux set an Ivy League record with 108 draw controls in a season. Senior Beau Sulser was in complete commmand of his pitches, giving up only two hits to Harvard in a 3-0 win on Saturday.

Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.

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

Kathryn Giroux, So., Summit, N.J.  M, Women's Lacrosse

Giroux picked up seven draw controls in the final game of the spring, pushing her to a figure of 108 for the season. That total now ranks as the new Ivy League record, eclipsing the old mark of 104 set three seasons ago by Yale's Nicole Daniggelis in 2104. Giroux passed the previous Dartmouth record of 82 two weeks ago before setting her eyes on the conference mark that she reached with just over three-quarters of a game remaining. The sophomore from New Jersey finishes her sophomore campaign ranked sixth nationally in draws per game (7.2) and 10th in total draws. Giroux also capped her season with two assists, giving her a career high in points (13) to go along with her best goal total (11).

Beau Sulser, Sr., Santa Ysabel, Calif., RHP, Baseball

Senior right-hander Beau Sulser dominated the Harvard lineup in the penultimate Dartmouth baseball game in Cambridge on April 30, shutting out the Crimson on a mere two hits in a 3-0 Big Green victory. The native of Santa Ysabel, California, needed just 67 pitches to tame the Harvard hitters in the seven-inning contest, and he did not walk a batter while striking out eight. Sulser finished the season leading the league with a 1.40 ERA, .201 batting average against him and a 10.40 strikeout-to-walk ratio that ranks second in the nation. The Ivy League Pitcher of the Week for a third time this year also is among the top 10 Division I pitchers in four other statistical categories.
