Brown's Corre Myer Earns Volleyball Ivy League Player of the Year Honors, Cooper and Schneider earn All-Ivy

Nov. 27, 2001

Myer finished the season, with a League leading 13.33 assists per game, recording 60 or more assists on five occasions this season. Myer's efforts helped the Bears lead the League in assists, with 14.53apg, and kills, 15.81.

Myer returned to the Bears lineup this season, after missing much of last season, due to a season ending knee injury suffered early in 2000. She ranks first on Brown's all-time career assists list. In her freshman season, Myer was a unanimous selection for Ivy League Rookie of the Year, and has earned Second Team All-Ivy honors, twice.

Other Bears honored in the post-season were junior Jessie Cooper (Tustin, CA), earning a spot on the second-team. Cooper recorded 372 kills on the season, which ranked 5th in the league. She also led the team in hitting percentage, with .254. She earned Player of the Week Honors on October 15.

Sophomore Diane Schneider (Saratoga, CA), was named an Honorable Mention. She ranked second on the team in kills this season, with 361. Schneider was instrumental in Brown's victories over Penn and Princeton in the final weekend of regular season play, posting two double-double performances.

Brown finished the season, 16-10 overall and 11-3 in the Ivy League.
