O'Connor Wins ECAC Coaches Choice Award

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After an impressive performance in Yale's defeat against Penn last Sunday, junior Ashley O'Connor was presented the weekly ECAC Coaches Choice Award. 

O'Connor, who hails from New Milford, Conn., has been struggling with a series of injuries to her ankle, back and shoulder this season.    On Sunday, she fought through the pain to deliver a personal-best score of 9.625 on the balance beam.  She was Yale's second finisher on the apparatus and fifth overall.

Despite O'Connor's strong routine, Yale fell to Penn by a score of 191.525-187.900.
