Cramm Earns Ivy League Player Of The Week Honors

Helped Bulldogs Sweep Dartmouth And Harvard

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale volleyball captain Taylor Cramm, who hit an impressive .538 without an attack error in 26 attempts in victories over Dartmouth and Harvard, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

In Friday's victory over Dartmouth, Cramm had a team best nine kills, three of which came during a 7-0 run to close out the first set. She hit .643 for the match and added three block assists and a solo block. In the win against Harvard, Cramm struck for five kills, five digs, two block assists, a solo block and an assist.

"Taylor has really made the most of her senior year," said Yale head coach Erin Appleman. "She works really hard, and it's nice to see it rewarded with Player of the Week honors."

Cramm leads Yale and is second in the league with a .392 hitting percentage on the season.

The Bulldogs (11-4, 5-0 Ivy) are back in action this weekend when they travel to Princeton on Friday at 7 p.m. and Penn on Saturday at 5 p.m.
