Borgo Earns Ivy League Co-Player of the Week Honor
Senior Forward/Midfielder Continues Re-Writing Yale Record Book
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Senior forward/midfielder Erica Borgo (Randolph, N.J.), who continued her climb up Yale's career lists with a seven-point weekend that included two goals and three assists, has been named Ivy League Co-Player of the Week. The league made the announcement on Tuesday. Borgo shares the award with Penn's Jasmine Cole.
Borgo had a goal and an assist Saturday vs. Harvard, then added a goal and two assists -- including one on the game-winning goal -- in Sunday's 3-2 win vs. Vermont. She now leads the Ivy League in assists with six. That puts her on pace to challenge her own school single-season record (17 assists, set during Yale's Ivy League championship season of 2011).
On Sunday Borgo moved past Erin Carter '12 (35-7-77) into fifth place on Yale's career scoring list (23-33-79). Borgo is also third on Yale's career assists list and tied for 10th on Yale's career goals list. She has extended her streak of consecutive games started to 57 -- every game of her career.
Borgo is the first Bulldog to be named Player of the Week since Erin Carter earned her third such award of the season on Nov. 1, 2011.
Yale (2-4, 0-1 Ivy League) visits No. 10 Princeton Friday at 7:00 p.m.
