PRINCETON, N.J. – For a stellar junior season, Dartmouth women’s basketball’s Kate Letkewicz was selected as an All-Ivy Honorable Mention in the postseason awards list announced by the league office on Thursday.

Letkewicz earned her second consecutive Honorable Mention from the Ancient Eight after she led the Big Green in scoring with 11.2 points per game. The Waterloo, Iowa native also grabbed a team-high 6.7 rebounds and started 23 of 27 games played.

Letkewicz was a constant scoring threat in 2016-17, especially from beyond the arc where the 6-foot guard led the team shooting .411 percent from three. She also finished the season 7th all-time in program history with 120 made three-pointers.

In her final game of the season, Letkewicz played a huge role in helping Dartmouth to an upset victory over Princeton, when she scored 14 points and grabbed eight boards in a 58-56 win against the Tigers.
