Hideko Tachibana, Amy He Earn All-Ivy Honors

Hideko Tachibana became just the second player in Harvard history to be named to the Ivy League first team three times (OAC). 

PRINCETON, N.J. – After finishing the season on a four-match win streak, the Harvard Crimson had a pair of All-Ivy selections, the conference office announced Thursday.

Senior Hideko Tachibana was named to the singles first team for the third time in her career, becoming just the 12th player in league history to earn a trio of first-team selections, while freshman Amy He was named to the singles second team after a stellar inaugural campaign.

Tachibana, who played exclusively at No. 1 during the dual season, finished the year with a 10-8 overall mark, including a two-match win streak to end the season. She joins Ivy Wang '99 as the only other player in Harvard history to earn three All-Ivy first-team selections.

He split time at positions two and three during the dual season to compile a 12-4 mark, including a 9-4 mark at second singles. The freshman closed the year on a high note, winning three of her final four matches to go 4-3 in Ivy League play.

The Crimson finished the season 13-6 overall and 5-2 in conference to end up third in the Ivy League standings.
