PRINCETON, N.J. – Peter Brand, head coach of the Harvard fencing teams, has been named the 2015 Ivy League Coach of the Year for his efforts in guiding the men's team. Brand earns the honor in the award's first year.

The recognition comes at the heels of the program's third-consecutive Ivy League championship, where the men's team went 4-1 to share the title with Columbia. Eli Dershwitz, Jerry Chang, and Alexander Eldeib were named to the All-Ivy League first team after strong performances, while Duncan O'Brien was placed on the second team.

Brand owns a 176-76 overall record on the men's side, and has guided the 2015 squad to a 14-3 mark, and 14th-straight season with a record at .500 or better.

The Crimson continues its 2015 season at the NCAA Northeast Regional on March 8, where Harvard's student-athletes will have the opportunity to qualify for the NCAA Championships.
