Four Hamilton College athletes were honored by the Liberty League on Dec. 7 when the league selected its weekly award winners.
Madie Harlem '13 (Oneonta, N.Y./Oneonta HS) was named women's basketball rookie of the week for the second straight week. In women's indoor track and field, Liz Wahl '10 (Pocatello, Idaho/Century HS) earned track performer of the week honors, Agne Jakubauskaite '13 (Panevezys, Lithuania) was the field performer of the week pick, and Muriel Schwinn '13 (Auburn, Maine/Edward Little HS) was selected rookie of the week.
Harlem averaged 16.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.3 steals in three Hamilton wins last week. She scored a season-high 29 points and tied a team record with seven made three-pointers in a 75-49 win against Lehman College at Salisbury University's Optimist Classic on Dec. 5. She ranks seventh in the league with 12.7 points per game, is tied for seventh with 3.17 assists per game, third with 3.17 steals per game and leads the league with a three-point field goal percentage of .500.
