August 27, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Senior Cori Conley has been named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending Aug. 26. The honor for the Nittany Lion back comes after the first week of action for the 2018 campaign. 

Conley anchored a smothering Penn State defense that held a high-powered Virginia offense scoreless and to only nine total shots. Conley's prowess in the middle of Penn State's defense kept the Cavaliers from pressing the Lion cage and lead Penn State to a 1-0 shutout win in the season opener over No. 7 Virginia. Conley played nearly the entire game for a Penn State defense that kept the Cavs scoreless in a national field hockey showdown to start the 2018 season.  The victory has Penn State off to a 1-0 start to begin the campaign.
