Freshman goalie Casey Murphy picked up two Big Ten weekly honors as she was named Freshman of the Week as well as Co-Defensive Player of the Week. This was the second week in a row that Murphy earned the honor. Murphy shut out a Lions team that was averaging almost three goals per game. It was her fourth shutout in a row.
On the offensive side of the ball, sophomore Madison Tiernan was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week. Tiernan scored the sole goal in a 1-0 win over No. 6 Penn State. It was Tiernan's fourth goal of the season.
