PRINCETON, N.J. - The Dartmouth women's soccer team had three players earn All-Ivy League honors it was announced by the Ivy League office on Thursday (Nov. 10). Junior midfielder Emma Brush (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) and sophomore midfielder Chrissy Lozier (Fairfield, Conn.) earned second team honors while junior defender Aurelia Solomon (Washington, D.C.) was an honorable mention selection. Lozier and Solomon are receiving All-Ivy honors for the second consecutive season while Brush is earning the honor for the first time in her career.

"It's an honor to have individuals recognized within the conference by the other coaches." said head coach Theresa Wagner Romagnolo.

Lozier, an All-Ivy second team selection last year, was a staple for the Big Green this season seeing action in 16 games with 14 starts. Lozier was third on the team in shots with 15 and registered one goal and one assist this season. Her goal against Vermont was the game-winner and was one of Dartmouth's nine goals this season. Lozier was named to the Ivy League honor roll for her efforts against Vermont.

"Chrissy spent much of the year battling injuries, said Wagner.  "But was still able to be an offensive threat on the field for us."

Brush had an outstanding junior campaign, seeing action in 16 games this season with 15 starts, in her first year as a starter. Brush tallied her first collegiate goal this season against Yale and was second on the team with seven shots on goal. For her career, Brush has seen action in 20 career games. Brush also showcased her defensive penchant, helping the Dartmouth backline to three shutouts on the season.

"Emma Brush had a fantastic year for us, getting better and better with each game she played and only beginning to tap into her potential."

Solomon has been a key piece of the Dartmouth defense this season despite missing several games with injury. Solomon, an All-Ivy second team selection last year, saw action in 11 games and scored her first collegiate goal against Harvard. Solomon was one of three players on the Dartmouth team to start each game they played this season. She helped lead a Dartmouth defense that recorded three shutouts on the season and only allowed 1.56 goals per game.

"Aurelia missed a segment of our season as well with an injury and was still able to be a leader on our back line. She has great speed and defensive instincts and brings a great mentality to the field every day." 

The Big Green concluded its first season under the direction of head coach Theresa Wagner with a 4-12-0, 2-5-0 Ivy League record with non-conference wins over Vermont and Maine and Ivy League wins over Princeton and Cornell.
