CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After leading Harvard to a 3-1 record at the Princeton Invitational last weekend with an outstanding performance on each end of the pool, Aisha Price was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division Player of the Week Feb. 14.

The junior found the back of the cage 13 times, scoring at least two goals in each contest, and added four assists and 10 steals during the tournament.

On the first day of the invite, Price led the Crimson to an easy 14-5 win over Bucknell with a hat trick, her third straight three-goal game to open the year. Later, the Honolulu, Hawaii native kept Harvard close in a 9-6 loss to No. 20 Princeton by scoring twice and registering two steals.

Price's big day came Feb. 12, when she scored four goals against Villanova in a 14-3 win and four more in a victory over Colorado State, 12-7. She also contributed two helpers in each game and made five steals against the Wildcats.

Price, who won her first career CWPA award, is the second Harvard player to take home player of the week honors. Devan Kennifer was named CWPA Southern Division Player of the Week Feb. 4 after scoring nine goals in two games.

Harvard returns to Princeton, N.J., for the MAAC/East Challenge Feb. 25-26.
