Barrett Named Ivy League Player of the Week

PROVIDENCE, RI – After helping to lead the Bears to a 2-0-0 week, sophomore goalie MC Barrett (Ithaca, NY) has been named Ivy League Player of the Week. She is Brown's first Player of the Week since September 15, 2008 when Brenna Hogue '10 earned the honor.  

Barrett, who had played the second half of every game during her career entering play last week, made the first two starts of her career and played the first two full games of her career. For the week, Barrett was 2-0-0, while posting a 0.50 GAA and an .875 save percentage with seven saves and one shutout. Barrett also earned an assist and stopped a penalty kick on the week.

In Tuesday's 1-0 win over Holy Cross, Barrett stopped all three shots she faced, while earning her first career shutout, Brown's sixth of the season. On Sunday against Cornell, Barrett made four saves, three of which came in the second half as Cornell was looking to tie the game after coming to within 2-1 after facing an early 2-0 deficit. Against the Big Red, Barrett also stopped a Cornell penalty kick early in the second half and tallied an assist on the Bears' first goal of the game just 7:30 into play. On Brown's first goal, Barrett corralled the ball inside the box and rolled it out to senior Gloria Chun (Irvine, CA) on her right. Chun sent the ball into the Cornell box, where junior leading scorer Eliza Marshall (North Andover, MA) was waiting to fire it past the goalie for the early lead. For the season, Barrett continues to rank in the top three in the Ivy League in both GAA and save percentage.
