NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- First year Ellis DeJardin was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.
"Ellis was amazing this weekend," Yale head coach Erin Appleman said. "She is super athletic and has a really good volleyball IQ. I'm excited to work with her over the next four years."
Last weekend, DeJardin led the Bulldogs in kills in each of their three matches -- all Yale victories. The San Gabriel, Calif., native added 19 digs and was named to the Battle of Connecticut All-Tournament team.
The Bulldogs return to action on Friday against Army-West Point, the first of three matches at a tournament hosted by Rhode Island.
