Washington and Lee first-year guard Meghan Ingram (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) garnered the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Week for women's basketball for the week ending January 4.
Ingram's weekly ODAC selection is the first for a W&L women's basketball player since the 2006-07 season. Center Jessica Hunsigner '07 was the last to receive the accolade on Feb. 5, 2007.
Ingram led the Generals to a 1-1 week. On Tuesday, W&L fell to Newport News Apprentice, 74-59, but rebounded with an impressive 67-66 victory over ODAC-foe Randolph-Macon on Sunday. The win snapped a 15-game losing streak to the Yellow Jackets, dating back to the 2001 season.
In the loss to NNA, Ingram recorded a career-high 31 points and shot .462 from behind the arc on 6-of-13 shooting. Her six three-pointers tied the school record for three-pointers made in a game.
In the win over Randolph-Macon, Ingram tallied 21 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the charity stripe and 4-of-7 shooting from distance. She also dished out a career-high seven assists.
On the season, Ingram is leading the team in minutes per game (35.1), points per contest (15.4) and assists per outing (4.0). Additionally, she is collecting 4.0 rebounds per game.
Washington and Lee returns to action on Tuesday as it travels to Virginia Wesleyan for a 7:00 pm game.
