CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Chris Satterthwaite was awarded seven All-Ivy honors and freshman Chuck Katis picked up six as the Harvard men’s swimming and diving team totaled 28 All-Ivy selections for its performance at the 2012 Ivy League Championships.

Satterthwaite, who shared the Phil Moriarty Award as the Swimmer of the Meet, earned four first team selections and three second team selections to become the first Crimson since Geoff Rathgeber ’08 in 2008 to tally seven All-Ivy accolades. Satterthwaite set new program records en route to wins in the 50 free (19.84) and 100 free (43.18), and also captured the 200 free (1:34.05) title and was a member of the school record setting 400 free relay (2:53.22) team.
