Providence, RI - Sophomore Joanna Wohlmutch (Manhattan Beach, CA) helped lead the Brown women's water polo team to a 4-0 record, including an 8-7 overtime victory against No. 12-nationally ranked Hartwick College, by scoring seven goals with three steals and 14 ejections drawn to earn the Northern Division Player of the Week.

Against the Hawks, Wohlmuth led all Bears' scorers with three goals, including the game-winner, as Brown handed Hartwick its first loss in Northern Division competition.
