In recognition of her three goals last week, Princeton sophomore forward Lauren Lazo has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week for women's soccer.

Lazo scored the tying goal in Princeton's eventual overtime win at La Salle, ending the Explorers' 10-game win streak, 13-game home win streak and 15-game home unbeaten streak that dated back two years. She then had her second two-goal game this season when she scored a pair at Cornell as the Tigers put aside the Big Red 5-1 to improve to 6-0 in the Ivy.

For her efforts, Lazo was also named to TopDrawerSoccer's National Team of the Week. The site has ranked the Tigers (12-3-1) 36th in the nation this week in their Tournament 64 ranking as the top team in the Ivy League, and Princeton is ranked 43rd in the latest RPI.

It is the fifth Ivy League Player of the Week honor of the season and third in a row for Princeton after three for senior Jen Hoy and one last week for Rachel Sheehy, and it is the first Ivy Player of the Week honor in Lazo's career. She won two Ivy Rookie of the Week awards last season.

Lazo is second on the team with seven goals and 19 points. She and the Tigers will host Penn at 4 p.m. Saturday, with a Princeton win or tie putting the Tigers into the NCAA tournament.
