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?
