PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Bryn Mawr field hockey freshman Sara Rilatt is already making quite a name for herself around the region. Having already been named Defender of the Week by the Centennial Conference on Tuesday, today Rilatt picked up Defender of the Week honors from Philafieldhockey.com as well, likely the first time ever that an Owls player has achieved such a feat.
Rilatt was a crucial part of both of Bryn Mawr's victories last week. As a central defender, she was largely responsible for the Owls posting back-to-back shutout victories, a feat that the Owls haven't pulled off since 1995. In the Owls' first game against Cedar Crest, Rilatt helped on both sides of the ball, not only helping the team keep a clean sheet, but also contributing to the Bryn Mawr's attacking efforts with five shots, mainly as a part of the team's penalty corner unit. Rilatt was perhaps even more impressive in the second game of the week for Bryn Mawr. Not only did she help the team post a shutout, but she and the rest of the Owls kept Ramapo from even registering a single shot in the game, a feat not accomplished at Bryn Mawr since the season-opener of 2006.
The York, Pa. native and the rest of the Owls will be back in action tonight for their first road game of the season. Bryn Mawr travels to Immaculata to take on the Mighty Macs at 7:00 PM. Be sure to follow along with the action with live video and stats links right here at GoBrynMawr.com!
