Eight members of the Harvard women’s swimming and diving team received All-Ivy recognition, the league announced following the Ivy Championships. The Crimson claimed second place at the meet, compiling 1,438 points and finishing a close second to Princeton with 1,465 points.

Senior Alexandra Clarke was the lone representative on the All-Ivy first team as she captured the title in the 1,000-yard freestyle. Clarke also received second-team recognition for runner-up finishes in the 500 free, 1,650 free and the 800 free relay. Junior Kate Mills received All-Ivy League second-team nods in the 200 free, 200 butterfly and 200 individual medley and was also part of the second-place 800 free relay squad.

Junior Christine Kaufman earned second-team status in the 1,000 free and classmate Katherine Pickard achieved second-team All-Ivy in the 400 IM and as a part of the 200 and 800 free relay teams. Freshman Kelly Robinson and junior Katy Hinkle and Ali Slack were the other members of the 200 free relay squad and sophomore Catherine Zagroba was named to the second team as part of the 800 free relay.
