Solomon, also a team captain, started in 11 games on the season, despite missing time with injury. A staple in the Dartmouth backline, Solomon helped the Big Green to three shutouts and a team .679 saves percentage. For her efforts, Solomon earned All-Ivy League honorable mention accolades, marking the second consecutive season she has earned All-Ivy League accolades.
Lozier, a junior midfielder, made 16 appearances with 14 starts during her sophomore campaign. She earned three points on the season with one goal and one assist. Showcasing her offensive skills, Lozier tallied 15 shots, third best for the Big Green in 2011.
