BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Harvard University Melissa Balding (Fr., Costa Mesa, Calif./Edison) notched five goals and two steals at home during the Harvard Invitational to claim the March 10 Southern Division Rookie of the Week award.

She propelled the Crimson to a 9-8 win over Marist College by scoring twice in the third period to pull even with the Red Foxes before burying the game-winner with 2:05 left in the game.

In addition, she factored in a trio of games against nationally-ranked foes as Harvard faced No. 20 University of Michigan (16-10 L), No. 18 Santa Clara University (9-7 L) and No. 16 San Diego State University (12-8 L).
