NEW YORK -- After scoring three goals on the week, including the game-winner against Penn on Saturday, sophomore Ashlin Yahr was named the Ivy League Women's Soccer Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday. It is the second time this season that Yahr has earned the award, and the fourth time in her career she has won weekly honors from the conference. On Tuesday, Yahr was also named ECAC Player of the Week.

Yahr scored a late goal in the 82nd minute to salvage a tie against Lehigh on Monday evening, then came back with a pair of markers against the Quakers. She found the back of the net in the 39th minute to give the Lions a 2-1 lead going into halftime, and after Penn had tied the match at 2-2 in the 53rd minute, wasted no time in putting Columbia back on top to stay with her goal in the 55th minute.

For the season, Yahr has a team-high eight goals which ranks third in the league. She has totaled 18 in her brief career, which stands ninth all-time at Columbia.

The Lions, who are tied for first place in the Ivy League with six points (2-1 record), return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 13 as they travel to Marist for their last non-conference tilt of the year. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
