Tomlinson Named Ivy Rookie of the Year; Three Bulldogs Selected to All-Ivy Squad
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale women's squash team continued to bring in honors Thursday, as the Ivy League head coaches voted for freshman Millie Tomlinson as the Ivy League Rookie of the Year, and voted Tomlinson, senior captain Logan Greer, and senior Sarah Toomey to the All-Ivy team.
The voting was close this year, as a tie in voting led the team to be composed of twelve student-athletes rather the usual nine, and only five players were unanimously selected, including Greer. The All-Ivy list also included Harvard's Laura Gemmell, who was handed the only loss of her career by Tomlinson in the finals of the national individual championships, three players from Penn, and two players each from Dartmouth and Princeton as well as one Cornell representative.
The awards added the icing to the cake of a near-perfect season for the Bulldogs. First, the team went undefeated in claiming the Ivy League and National Championships. Greer was then awarded the prestigious Richey award for "the women's college squash player who best exemplifies the ideals of squash in her love and devotion to the game her strong sense of fairness, and her excellence of play and leadership". Finally, Tomlinson breezed through the national individual championship, capturing the title without losing a single game.
