Sarah Moody Named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown women's soccer freshman Sarah Moody (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week for the week ending October 28th. A defender and midfielder, Moody has played in 13 of the Bears' 15 games, starting nine. She has a pair of assists on the season.

Brown dropped both of its games last week, but it was not for lack of effort. The Bears suffered a pair of 1-0 overtime losses last week, first to Harvard and then to Penn. Moody was a key figure on the Bears defense that held strong against the defending League champion Crimson and the Quakers, who are currently tied for second-place.

The Bears continue action with a pair of games this week against Yale. Brown will face the Bulldogs in a nationally televised (Fox Soccer Channel) League game on Thursday evening in Providence, before closing out the 2012 season on Sunday afternoon with a non-league contest in New Haven.
