Three Earn All-Ivy in Women's Golf

PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League announced its postseason honors for women's golf, and Penn was represented by three women who earned All-Ivy recognition. The All-Ivy teams are based on a player's finish at the Ivy League Championships, which was played this past weekend on the famed Baltusrol course in Springfield, N.J.

Freshman Isabel Han and sophomore Tiffany Cheung both earned first-team All-Ivy recognition. Playing in her first Ivy League Championships, Han shot 79-74-75--228 and finished as individual runner-up to Yale's Alyssa Roland. Cheung, meanwhile, carded a 77-76-77--230 and finished third overall.

Senior Lisette Vitter was a second-team All-Ivy honoree. Player her final Championships, Vitter shot 77-78-77--232 which placed her sixth overall.

This marked the first time Penn had three women earn All-Ivy in the same year; in fact, prior to this season only four women had gained All-Ivy since the program began competing at the Ivy Championships in 2000. Han, Cheung and Vitter are the first Quaker women to earn All-Ivy recognition since Meg Bender and Kim Thompson in 2006.

In a vote of the Ivy League head coaches, Harvard sophomoreChristine Cho was named the Ivy League Player of the Year while her freshman teammate, Katie Sylvan, was a unanimous selection as the Ivy League Rookie of the Year.
