Feb. 5, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - For the second straight week Indiana has had two players earn weekly awards from the CWPA. Transfer Allison Campbell was named Conference Player of the Week while goalie Jessica Gaudreault was named Defensive Player of the Week once again. The awards come after a stellar performance by the Hoosiers after competing in the Brown Invitational in Providence, RI.
Campbell was unstoppable on offense tallying 11 goals and six assists in her four matches played this weekend. She also added four steals to help the Hoosiers go undefeated in four games over the weekend and match a school-record for fastest start at 6-0, overall.
Campbell kicked off the tournament with two goals as the Hoosiers downed host Brown University, 17-6, and added another in the squad's 11-5 victory over No. 19 Hartwick.
