Women’s hockey forward SARAH FILLIER ’22 scored goals in four consecutive games — all Princeton wins — and was named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week in back-to-back weeks. Fillier, the nation’s leading scorer last season, netted both Princeton goals in her team’s 2–1 win over then-No. 5 Clarkson at Baker Rink Nov. 22. She also assisted on five goals — a career high — and scored one in Princeton’s 7-5 win over Colgate Dec. 7.
