Villanova senior Katie Ryan was the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, while St. John’s sophomore Lauren Ferris was the BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week.
Schuveiller was tabbed BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Irish to a 2-0-0 showing. The senior anchored the Notre Dame defense that had two shutouts over the weekend, a 3-0 victory over UConn and a 3-0 victory over Providence. Schuveiller helped limit opponents to just six shots on-goal in the two wins. She also had five points last week, including a goal and an assist against UConn.

Ryan earned BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week honors after totaling nine points in a 2-0-0 week. The senior scored three points, including a goal, in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh to snap a six-game Villanova losing streak. Ryan also played a part in all four scores in a 4-1 win over then-No. 22/21 West Virginia. She had two goals and two assists totaling six points. The six points were the most by a Villanova player in a conference game since Quinn Sellers had six points in a 3-1 win over Georgetown on October 7, 1999.
