PRINCETON, N.J. – Three members of the Dartmouth field hockey team earned 2013 All-Ivy League honors, the conference office announced Wednesday afternoon.

Junior Ali Savage was a unanimous All-Ivy First Team selection for the second year in a row, while sophomore Eliza Becker earned Second Team honors and senior Olivia Quaglia received Honorable Mention distinction.

Savage has now claimed a spot on the all-conference team in each of her three seasons in Hanover with her second-straight appearance on the first team this fall. For the second consecutive year, Savage was just one of four players to make the team unanimously as voted on by the league’s head coaches.

The Australian native finished the season tied for the league lead in both points (39) and assists (9), while second in goals (15). Her 39 points were three-shy of tying Dartmouth’s single-season record of 42 and rank tied for fourth. The 15 goals was the sixth-best output by any Big Green player in four decades of play with 12 coming via four hat tricks, helping Savage tie both the program’s single-season mark (4) as well as the career record (6).

Savage posted nine goals and three assists for 21 points in Dartmouth’s seven league games.

In addition to this yearly accolade, Savage was recognized three times this fall as the Ivy League’s Player of the Week. In her career, the junior was been honored as the league’s top player during a week’s time on five occasions and was three times tabbed as the conference’s top rookie in 2011, earning All-Ivy Second Team honors that fall.

Becker makes her first appearance on an All-Ivy squad in 2013 with her selection to the second team.

The second-year midfielder from Lawrenceville, N.J., stepped up her game in 2013, finishing fourth on the team with 16 points. Her seven goals were third on the Big Green with four coming against Ivy League competition, including two against Harvard in a 4-2 win in Cambridge on Nov. 2.

Nine of Becker’s points this season came in Ivy contests, the second-best figure of any Big Green player. In addition to goals at Harvard (2) and Brown and home against Columbia, she also picked up Dartmouth’s lone assist against Princeton.

Quaglia earns All-Ivy honors for the second year in a row as she was named to the Honorable Mention Team. Last season, the Los Altos, Calif., native was a member of the first team.

This fall, Quaglia was once again the anchor of the Dartmouth defense, playing in the middle of the backfield. However, despite her increased responsibilities in the defensive end, she was not shy in helping to contribute on offense either. Playing and starting in all 17 games for the fourth straight season, Quaglia shattered her career highs in all statistical categories as she scored six goals and dished out six assists for 18 points. The senior also led the team with five defensive saves, another career high.

Dartmouth concluded the season 7-10 overall and 3-4 in conference tilts.

Princeton claimed at least a share of all three major awards as Michelle Cesan was tabbed as the Offensive Player of the Year, Julie Reinprecht was named the Defensive Player of the Year and Annabeth Donovan shared Rookie of the Year honors with Penn’s Jasmine Cole.
