Providence, R.I. ? Senior midfielder Michi Ellers (Swarthmore, Pa./Strath Haven) and junior attacker Sarah Oliphant (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) earned BIG EAST Player of the Week accolades for their outstanding performances in Georgetown?s 16-7 league win over Virginia Tech on Sunday, March 7.  Ellers shares the BIG EAST Co-Defender of the Week with Rutgers? Lyndsey Feldman, while Oliphant garnered the Co-Offensive Player of the Week, along with Notre Dame?s Meredith Simon. 

Ellers, the 2004 BIG EAST Pre-Season Defender of the Year, was sensational on both sides of the field.  She posted eight caused turnovers, six ground balls and three draw controls.  The tri-captain also netted two goals against the Hokies.

Oliphant paced the Georgetown offense in the Conference victory.  She tallied a game-high six points on the strength of four goals and two assists.  Oliphant was also credited with two ground balls and one draw control.
