CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Sophomore midfielder Carly Dickson has earned selection to the All-Ivy League second team, leading three all-league selections from the Harvard field hockey team. Junior Chloe Keating and freshman Cynthia Tassopoulos garnered All-Ivy honorable mention.

Dickson was honored for the league for the second straight season. She was a first-team honoree as a freshman. Dickson anchored the Crimson midfield and led the team with seven assists. The Victoria, B.C., native added five goals for 10 points and led the team with nine points on three goals and three assists. She finished the year strong, recording a goal and an assist in two of Harvard’s final three games.

Keating led Harvard with 25 points and 10 goals. She contributed at both the midfield and forward positions and recorded the team’s highest single-season point total since 2004. A native of Bryn Mawr, Pa., Keating was the central figure in Harvard’s early-season, non-conference success. She had five goals and four assists in the first three games of the season, all wins, and was named Ivy League Player of the Week Sept. 15.

Tassopoulos had an outstanding rookie season in the Harvard goal. She ranks seventh in the nation with 8.82 saves per game and posted a .701 save percentage. She won the first three starts of her career and made eight saves Oct. 17 at Cornell to record her first shutout. She was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week Oct. 13, after posting double-digit saves against Massachusetts and Michigan and holding the Minutewomen scoreless from the field. The Dallas native recorded a season-high 23 saves against No. 6 Connecticut.
