Lord Tabbed as Rookie of the Year, Camhi Earns Second Team All-Ivy Honors

PRINCETON, N.J. – Freshman Dayna Lord (Bloomfield, Conn.) was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year while earning unanimous First Team All-Ivy singles honors and sophomore Hannah Camhi (Woodbury, N.Y.) garnered Second Team singles accolades in an announcement made by the Ivy League on Wednesday.

The duo also teamed up to earn Second Team honors in doubles play after recording a 24-9 overall and 4-3 Ivy records in 2013-14.  Camhi was recognized for the second consecutive season in doubles play after earning First Team honors alongside teammate, Misia Krasowski, in 2012-13.

Lord edged out Tina Jiang (Columbia), Taylor Ng (Dartmouth), Alanna Wolff (Princeton), and Dorothy Tang (Princeton) for the Rookie of the Year award after recording a 29-7 mark in the No. 1 singles slot.  Lord is Brown's first Rookie of the Year winner since current assistant coach Bianca Aboubakare claimed the award in 2008.  Her 29 victories rank second on the single-season wins list and are the most wins in a season by a Brown player since Trishna Patel recorded 36 in 1997.

Camhi tallied a 25-9 overall record this season in the No. 2 slot for the Bears, including a 17-5 record during the spring dual match season.
