Rotatori, Stollar Earn Scholar All-Region Honors

Both players were first team All-Ivy selections in 2016 (Gil Talbot).

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Finding as much success in the classroom as on the field, senior Carly Rotatori and junior Dani Stollar have been named to the NSCAA Scholar All-East Region second team, as announced by the organization on Thursday.

A two-time captain, Rotatori earns the honor on the heels of earning first team All-Ivy recognition in November. A catalyst for the Crimson on both sides of the pitch, Rotatori consistently controlled pace of play and possession from her central midfield position. She helped the Crimson to seven shutouts on the season, including four in Ivy play.

Stollar was also a first team All-Ivy selection, after a strong season on the back line. Also a threat to carry the ball forward, Stollar tallied one assist this season. The 2014 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, Stollar was instrumental in pushing the Crimson to seven shutouts as the conference's top defense.

Nominated players had to hold a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 while starting at least half of all games and serving as a significant contributor. Only juniors and senior players were eligible to be selected.

Harvard women's soccer posted a 10-4-3 record on the season, including a 5-0-2 mark in conference play to win its third Ivy title in four years. Buoyed by an 11-game unbeaten streak from Sept. 11-Nov. 5, Harvard advanced to its 16th NCAA Tournament in program history.
