Sarah Finnemore - Field Hockey

CAMBRDIGE, Mass. – Freshman field hockey player Sarah Finnemore has been named the COOP Athlete of the Week for Sept. 16.

The freshman tallied a pair of goals to help Harvard earn its first win of the 2013 campaign as the team downed Holy Cross, 4-0, Friday night. The Norridgewock, Maine, native opened the scoring in the 51st minute before finding the back of the net eight minutes later to give Harvard the 3-0 advantage. Finnemore, who scored her first goal of the year against Bryant, now has three goals this season, the most by a freshman scored in a season since Noel Painter’s eight in 2011.

Harvard returns to action this Saturday as the squad heads to New Haven, Conn., to take on Yale.

The last time field hockey won the award was Sept. 6, 2011 when Bridget McGillivray took home the honor.
