By @MichaelCaples –

Elle Hartje made her NCAA debut over the weekend, and she wasted no time filling up the scoresheet.

The Detroit native recorded a hat trick in her first game with the Yale Bulldogs, leading them to a 9-2 win over Long Island University.

The next night, Hartje posted a goal and an assist to finish her opening weekend with six points (four goals, two assists) and a +8 rating.

The Belle Tire alum was named the ECAC rookie of the week for her efforts, and now, she has been named the NCAA’s third star of the week.
