CAMBRIDGE, Mass. –
Three members of the Harvard women’s volleyball team received All-Ivy League accolades, the league announced Friday. Junior middle hitter Sandra Lynne Fryhofer earned a second-team selection while classmates Anne Carroll Ingersoll and Christine Wu received honorable mention. In addition to the league accolades, Wu earned ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors as a result of her academic and athletic achievements.

Fryhofer was one of three Harvard athletes to see action in all 26 matches this season. She ended the year ranked second on the team in hitting percentage (.272) and was fourth with 186 kills on the season. Fryhofer also contributed seven aces, 75 digs and was second on the Crimson with 70 total blocks, including 11 solo efforts. The All-Ivy nod marks her second conference season award, as she received honorable mention accolades last season.

Ingersoll, a co-captain of the Crimson in 2010, led the team with a 2.35 kills-per-set average and finished third on the squad with 190 total kills. Ingersoll also tallied 13 aces, 102 digs and 55 total blocks, helping the Crimson to a 9-17 overall record and a 6-8 mark in conference play. The junior middle blocker/outside hitter earned second-team honors as a sophomore and league Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman, making this her third Ivy League accolade in the past three seasons.

Wu was once again a defensive force for the Crimson, earning her third league honor in her three years with the team. The junior libero played in every match this season and led the Crimson with 449 digs on the year and a 4.40 digs-per-set average. Her 449 digs were the third-highest total in a season in program history and Wu now ranks third on the all-time list with 1318 career digs. Wu also represented Harvard on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District squad, earning second-team honors as a human evolutionary biology concentrator.
