Freshman guard Sarah Halejian was named Ivy League Co-Rookie of the Week on Monday. In one game last week, Halejian set a season-high with 14 points against St. Francis (N.Y.). Sunday’s game was Halejian’s fouth start of the season for the Bulldogs. She finished the game 6-for-10 shooting from the field with one 3-point field goal. Halejian added three rebounds and two steals as Yale ran away from St. Francis 72-41.
“Sarah is a gifted offensive player and is becoming a very strong defender as well,” said Chris Gobrecht, the Joel E. Smilow, Class of 1954, Head Coach of Women’s Basketball. “It is great to be able to get such significant contributions from our freshmen.”
