College Roundup: Giovanniello Honored for Final Game
Princeton, n.j. — Senior Kristen Giovanniello capped her Dartmouth goalkeeping career on Monday when she was named the Ivy League’s defensive player of the week.
Giovanniello made 16 saves in her final game, Friday’s 9-8 win at Harvard. The save tally was the second-highest of the Old Brookville, N.Y., native’s four seasons in the Dartmouth net. Giovaniello recorded 13 of her saves in the first half and earned weekly defensive honors for the eighth time.
Her win was also the 40th of her career, making her just the third Dartmouth netminder to reach that plateau. She played every minute of the Big Green’s schedule this year.
