The Crimson seizes nine individual and four relay All-Ivy honors (Gavin Baker).
PRINCETON, N.J. – Coming off its 13th Ivy League championship and third in five years, Harvard women's swimming and diving was recognized Wednesday afternoon with nine individual All-Ivy honors, as well as four all-conference relay awards. Stephanie Wriede Morawski '92, The Costin Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Swimming and Diving, was named the Ivy League Coach of the Year.
"This was a full team effort," says Wriede Morawski. "For the individuals who are first or second All-Ivy, it is due to the support and encouragement of their teammates.
"While I'm honored to be recognized as Coach of the Year, this award is not mine alone. It takes a coaching, strength and support staff working together to bring about success. I'd like to thank Amanda Kulik, Tracey Bird, Beth Zeitlin, Donna Ognibene, Craig Fafara, Jon Castaldo, Sean O'Brien, Heidi and Raffi Kaivalya, Rob Kum, Kevin Madigan, and Andrea LaPointe. This recognition belongs to all of them as well."
Sophomore Miki Dahlke and senior captain Jing Leung highlighted the Crimson's accolades. Dahlke was named this year's High Point Swimmer of the Meet, while Leung earned the Ron Keenhold Career High Point Diver honor.
Dahlke was the most dominant swimmer at last week's championship, winning three individual events (100 free, 200 free, 100 fly), as well as swimming on two of Harvard's victorious relay squads (200 free, 800 free) to earn five first team honors.
Senior Geordie Enoch, who capped off her career at the league championship with bookend titles in the 200 IM, earned first team honors in the 200 IM, and second team accolades in the 400 IM. Enoch also earned first team honors swimming on the Crimson's first-place 800 free relay team.
Freshman Kennidy Quist was a member of three Crimson relay squads (800 free, 400 free, 400 IM) that earned All-Ivy recognition, in addition to claiming second team honors in the 200 free. Junior Meagan Popp swam the anchor leg of the 800 free relay squad to earn first team honors, while garnering second team accolades in the 200 IM.
Freshman Ingrid Wall was a member of three Harvard relay squads (200 free, 400 free, 400 IM) that earned all-conference honors, while Mei Lynn Colby was a member of two (200 free, 400 free). Sophomore Jerrica Li earned first team honors swimming the third leg of the 800 free, while junior Sonia Wang earned second team accolades as a member of the 400 IM relay.
