The Ivy League has announced the women’s tennis All-Ivy teams and Dartmouth freshman Katherine Yau was the lone member of the Big Green recognized. After an impressive first year on campus, the Manhasset, N.Y., native Yau earned second team honors. Yau was named second team All-Ivy in singles after finishing the conference slate with a record of 4-3, while competing at the number one position for six of those seven matches. Yau notched three straight wins in league action down the stretch, topping two unanimous first team honorees, Princeton’s Lindsay Graff and Yale’s Elizabeth Epstein, along the way.
Yau ended her first season of collegiate competition with 18 wins in singles action, including a team-best six match winning streak in the middle of the season. She also becomes the first freshman to garner league recognition since teammate Sarah Leonard was named to the second team in 2009. Dartmouth finished the year 8-10 overall and 1-6 in the Ivy League.
