Hoy, Lazo Earn Ivy Weekly Women's Soccer Honors
Following two 2-1 games against Big East foes over the weekend, Princeton junior Jen Hoy was named the Ivy League Player of the Week and freshman Lauren Lazo shared the Ivy League Rookie of the Week award, the Ivy office announced Monday.
Friday night at Seton Hall, Hoy assisted on a Caitlin Blosser goal that gave Princeton a 1-0 lead in the 80th minute before the Pirates responded with goals in the 81st and 109th minutes to take the win. Sunday, Hoy scored in the eighth minute at Villanova on an assist by Lazo, who earned her first collegiate point on the play. After Villanova answered in the 36th minute, Hoy helped on a Lazo goal with 33 seconds to go in the opening half that turned out to be the game-winner.
The honor is Hoy's second career Ivy League weekly recognition. On Oct. 26, 2009, Hoy shared the Ivy Rookie of the Week honor. It is the first Ivy honor for Lazo and Princeton's first Ivy weekly honor since Oct. 4, 2010, when Blosser was the Ivy Player of the Week.
Hoy leads the team with six points on two goals and two assists, while Lazo's day at Villanova puts her third on the team with three points. Princeton (1-3) will travel to William & Mary (4-1-2) for a Friday night game that will close the five-contest road trip that started the Tigers' season. Princeton will open the home slate with La Salle Sunday afternoon.
