Junior Sarah Gervais, of Harrisville, Rhode Island, earned Ivy League Player of the Week honors (week ending November 10), following her stellar play in a 2-0 shutout of Yale in Brown's season finale.
Gervais, who totaled nine saves, picked up her third shutout of the season, and of her career, with the win. After Brown took a 2-0 lead with goals in the 78th and 82nd minutes, Gervais stopped Chandra King on a penalty shot in the 85th minute, making a sprawling save on the PK and then a point blank save on King's follow-up shot.
The win marked Brown's first Ivy win of the season, as the Bears closed out the 2002 season with a 6-9-2 record. Next season, Brown returns six of the top eight scorers and nearly all of the defense, including Gervais, who finished this season with a 1.35 goals against average, a .854 save percentage and three shutouts.
