Penn State field hockey: Grzywacz earns honor for defense

Penn State’s Brittany Grzywacz was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday.

The senior back scored the first goal, and anchored the defense, in a pair of shutouts last week as the Nittany Lions beat No. 16 Delaware and Lafayette. Grzywacz helped the defense surrender a total of four shots over the two games.

Penn State faces Miami, Ohio, and Indiana in Bloomington, Ind., this weekend.
