Three days after leading the volleyball team to the Yale Invitational title, Shannon Farrell ’07 won a title of her own — Ivy League Player of the Week.
The veteran outside hitter had 42 kills in the Bulldogs’ three tournament wins over Quinnipiac, St. Francis and Holy Cross. Her best performance of the weekend came against the Bobcats Friday night, when she collected a season-high 17 kills.
Farrell has had an outstanding start to 2005. Averaging a team-high 3.34 kills per game, she has notched three double-doubles already this fall, not including a 17-kill, eight-dig performance in the Bulldogs’ 3-0 win over the University of Connecticut — the first against the Huskies since 1987.
In 2004, Farrell played a key role in the Elis’ magical run to the Ivy League Championship and second round of the NCAA Championship, appearing in all 100 games and posting 388 kills.
Farrell and the Bulldogs (5-1) return to action this weekend when they host Delaware, Iona and Binghamton at the Yale Classic.
