Garcia Earns Ivy League Co-Player of the Week Honors

The award is her second of the season (Gil Talbot).

PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior Rachel Garcia of the women's soccer team has been named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week for Oct. 24-30, as announced by the league office on Monday. The award is Garcia's second in the last three weeks, and Harvard's third-consecutive player of the week award.

Garcia registered a goal and an assist in a 2-0 victory at Dartmouth, helping the Crimson climb to first place in the Ivy League standings. The Duluth, Georgia native scored the game-winner with a header in the 37th minute before assisting Margaret Purce's goal in the 63rd. With the win, Harvard can win the Ivy League outright with a win or draw in its Ancient Eight finale.

Harvard has won five Ivy League Player of the Week awards in 2016, as Purce has captured two and senior Karly Zlatic won once. The Crimson hosts Columbia for Senior Day on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. on the Ivy League Digital Network.
