Steinberg Earns Ivy League Honors
Named Co-Player, Co-Rookie Of Week
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale's domination of the Ivy League weekly awards continues. Freshman outside hitter Brittani Steinberg, who hit .509 in the Bulldogs' two wins last weekend, has been named the league's co-player and co-rookie of the week.
Steinberg had 11 kills with just two errors in a three-set sweep over Cornell on Friday night and followed that up with a 20-kill performance – the first by a Bulldog this season – in a four-set win over Columbia.
"Brittani was outstanding this weekend. She was able to perform at a very high level," said Yale head coach Erin Appleman. "It's so nice to see our underclassmen finding success. The future is very bright for our program."
It is the first time this season that Steinberg has won player of the week honors and the second time she earned rookie of the week honors.
Yale has now had at least one honoree in six of the seven weeks this season.
Yale (13-3, 7-0 Ivy) is back on the road this weekend, travelling to Brown for a 5 p.m. match. The Bulldogs have won 21 straight Ivy matches.
