PRINCETON, N.J. – Dartmouth volleyball senior Emily Astarita was named to the All-Ivy League Honorable Mention Team, as announced by the conference office on Thursday.

The Big Green concluded their season over the weekend by going 1-1, coming back from a two-set deficit to defeat Brown, 3-2, on Friday before falling to Yale by the same score on Senior Day on Saturday. Led by first-year head coach Gilad Doron, Dartmouth had an overall record of 9-16 and 2-12 in Ivy League play in 2016. 

Astarita has received postseason honors from the conference each of the last three years. As a junior, she was named to the first team, while she was an honorable mention selection the year before.

A neuroscience major from Setauket, New York, Astarita appeared in and started all 25 of the team’s matches. The co-captain led the team with 257 kills and 2.79 kills per set and was second with 232 digs and 58 total blocks. She ended her final season at Dartmouth with 306 points. Among Ancient Eight opponents, she was fourth in kills and seventh in kills per set.

Last month, Astarita earned her 1,000th career kill in the 3-2 victory over Cornell at home, becoming just the sixth player in program history to do so. She is currently fourth in Dartmouth’s all-time record book with 1,107.

Three weeks after reaching that milestone, she was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team for the first time in her career. She was the only Ivy League player to appear on either of the three teams.
