Bernhardt and Malever each had career-highs, with Bernhardt scoring six goals while Malever earned four points. Shockey won the award for the third time in his career after winning a season-high 18 faceoffs against Rutgers.

Defender Lizzie Colson from the women’s lacrosse team was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. Colson caused three turnovers and picked up five ground balls in a win against Johns Hopkins.

Shortstop Ben Cowles from the baseball team was named the Big Ten Player of the Week after a stellar weekend performance against Rutgers. He went 6-for-14 at the plate, hitting five home runs and driving in eight runs over a four-game set.

Finally, midfielder/defender Nick Richardson from the men’s soccer team was recognized on Top Drawer Soccer’s Team of the Week. Richardson had two assists in a 2-1 win at Michigan.
