In Saturday’s season opener against No. 19 Georgetown in the nation’s capital, senior attacker Gabby Rosenzweig had three goals and five assists in the women’s lacrosse team’s 17-6 win.

Defensively, junior midfielder Abby Bosco of Suffern, New York, had a game-high six ground balls and caused a career-high six turnovers, while helping the Quakers hold the Hoyas without a goal for the first 28:18 of the game.

The duo’s dynamic play has earned them, in turn, Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week and Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week.

Rosenzweig was recently named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list, which is given annually to the most outstanding college lacrosse player. She was also on the list during her sophomore and junior seasons. The Somers, New York, native is currently only four points and seven assists from both school records. She was a unanimous First-Team All-Ivy selection last year and an Inside Lacrosse Third-Team All-American.

Bosco played and started all 18 games last season and was a Second-Team All-Ivy awardee.
