Nominated by coaches and sports information directors, Harrow Sports player of the week honorees should have a significant impact on his or her team's performance during the prior week and demonstrate sportsmanship.
Nightingale accounted for the match-clinching point last Saturday as the Fords opened the season with a 5-4 victory over host New York University. Playing in her customary spot at the top of the ladder, Nightingale faced NYU's Michelle Yhantovsky with the match deadlocked at 4-4. Six of the first eight team matches of the day had taken four or more games to complete but Nightingale wasted little time as she claimed a 3-0 victory (11-5, 11-0, 11-3).
Freshman Harrison Finkelstein of Johns Hopkins University earned the men's player of the week award.
