Wu, Docter Named to All-Ivy League Second Team

Wu earned her fourth All-Ivy selection while Docter garnered her first (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Christine Wu and junior Taylor Docter have been named to the All-Ivy League second team, as announced Thursday by the league office. Wu is a four-time All-Ivy honoree, having also been named to the second team in 2009 and honorable mention in 2008 and 2010, while Docter has earned her first all-conference accolade.

Wu capped her career off ranked first in Harvard history and second in Ivy annals with 1,841 career digs. Her 523 digs in 2011 set a new single-season Crimson record and is the fourth-most digs in Ivy League history. The senior co-captain averaged 5.56 dps, which ranks 16th in the NCAA, while as a team the Crimson ranked 15th with an average of 18.15 dps. Wu was also proficient at the service line, recording 24 aces for an average of 0.26 per set, the tenth best mark in the Ancient Eight.

Wu is just the fourth student-athlete in program history to be a four-time All-Ivy selection, joining Elissa Hart '98, Maia Forman '89 and Erin Denniston '02.

Docter posted a team-best 3.05 kps this season which ranks eighth in the conference. She also led the team in aces per set at 0.27, good for seventh in the Ivy League, and was seventh in the Ivy rankings with an average of 3.52 points per set. Docter tallied three double-doubles over the course of the year to finish with 1.72 dps.

Harvard has had at least one student-athlete named All-Ivy in each of the last 18 seasons dating back to 1994. This is the third straight year the Crimson has had at least one student-athlete earn a spot on the second team.
