After leading the Yale field hockey team to three wins in the season's first seven days, sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Terroso (York, Pa.) has been named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week. The league announced the award on Monday.
A first team All-Ivy League selection last season, Terroso has picked up where she left off. She stopped 14 of the 18 shots she faced in the three victories, posting a .778 save percentage and a 1.30 goals-against average. Her .784 save percentage last season ranked eighth in the country and second in the Ivy League.
Terroso's efforts helped Yale to wins vs. Michigan State, Hofstra and Drexel. Yale is now off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2010. The Bulldogs travel to California for games at Stanford and Cal this weekend.
Terroso is a member of Davenport College and a graduate of Dallastown Area High School. One of her club coaches, Anne Lehman Dillman '93 with Lanco Premier Field Hockey Club, played field hockey at Yale.
