YORK, PA – York College is proud to announce that senior field hockey defender Jennifer Morrissette has been named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 9.
Senior Jenny Morrissette returned to the Spartan lineup after missing the season opener due to injury. She was the anchor of the Spartan defense in a 1-1 week that included a shutout in a 2-0 win at Dickinson College despite facing 13 shots. The defense allowed only two goals in the two games.
Morrissette set two school records on Saturday in a contest at Shenandoah University. Morrissette compiled four defensive saves breaking a single-game record held by seven previous Spartans in a tight 2-1 loss. In the same game, Morrissette reached 21 career defensive saves, which passes former Spartan defensive standout Kari Moyer (1996-99) for the school record.
