Christine Honor, Sr., Mississauga, Ont., GK, Women's Hockey
Christie Honor had a career night against Quinnipiac on Friday, making an impressive 61 saves on 61 shots to earn her first career shutout and help the Big Green defeat the Bobcats, 1-0. Not only was this a career-high, but it was also a program record and, best of all, an NCAA record for most saves in a shutout. The previous record of 60 had been held since 2014.
Matt Danilack, Jr., Rockville, Md., MF, Men's Soccer
In a 1-0 win at Harvard last weekend, Danilack was the hero for the Big Green. Both teams played scoreless through almost the entirety of the game, even though the Big Green took 30 shots. In the 89th minute, Danilack connected on an assist from junior Justin Donawa inside the box, sending a bicycle kick into the net past the keeper’s hands for the win. The 6-2 senior was also named Ivy League Player of the Week for his efforts.
