Women's hockey co-captain Jillian Dempsey may have earned the spot as The Crimson's Athlete of the Week this time around, but two Crimson standouts from this past weekend have also secured bragging rights.

CHRISTINE CLARK, WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Clark has consistently been an offensive threat in each of the Harvard's contests this season and is currently averaging 19 points per game. The junior guard from Tuscan, Ariz. dominated the court this weekend against Michigan and Eastern Michigan, scoring 23 and 16 points, respectively. Clark leads the offense, registering 114 points in the last six games. The guard also has totaled 17 assists and 12 steals.

EMERANCE MASCHMEYER, WOMEN’S ICE HOCKEY

After snagging the title of Athlete of the Week on Nov. 6, Maschmeyer makes her first appearance on the Runners Up list after an impressive performance that helped secure the Harvard women's hockey team's win against Cornell, 3-1, this past Saturday. The freshman goalie registered 21 saves against the Big Red, adding to her career total of 49 saves over the span of her three starts this season. Maschmeyer has only allowed two goals against and has a staggering save percentage of .961.
