Nov. 20, 2007

Providence, RI - Brown senior Katie Lapinski (Niles, IL) and junior Natalie Meyers (Seal Beach, CA) received Honorable Mention All-Ivy honors on Tuesday. This is the third All-Ivy nod for Lapinski, while Meyers was named to the team for the first time.

Lapinski finished second in the Ivy League with 5.71 digs per game on the season, a career high that ranks second all-time in the Brown record book. Her 525 digs on the year were good for third all-time as well. She set a season high with 29 digs in three games for a 9.67 per game average against Princeton on Nov. 9, the fourth-highest single-match average in Brown history. She also topped 30 digs in a match three times. A First Team All-Ivy honoree as a junior and an Honorable Mention recipient as a sophomore, Lapinski set a new Brown record for career digs-per-game average at 4.79, completely shattering the old mark of 3.85 set by Tomo Nakanishi '00. She also sits second all-time in career digs at 1,728, just 34 behind Nakanishi's mark. Her 82 career aces are also good for fifth all-time at Brown.

Meyers was third in the Ivy League in assists both overall (11.66 per game) and in League play (12.30). Meyers was also second on the Bears with 3.47 digs per game, and recorded double-doubles in 19 of Brown's 24 matches. Entering her final season, Meyers ranks fourth in Brown's record books with 2,118 career assists and fifth with a 9.33 career assists-per-game average.
