PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League highlighted the 2011 Division I Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) All-Region Honors with three women's coaches honored and 28 women's rowers named All-Region.

Princeton head coach Lori Dauphiny was Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year while Dartmouth head coach Wendy Levash earned New England Coach of the Year honors. Radcliffe's Cory Bosworth was named Assistant Coach of the Year in the Mid-Atlantic region.

The League tallied 18 first-team and 10 second-team All-Region selections over two of the five regions that recognized outstanding performances of rowers and coxswains in Division I. Brown and Princeton led the Ivies each with a total of five student-athletes recognized (four on the first team and one of the second team).

Nominated student-athletes are evaluated on the strength of their team's regional finish, coaches recommendations and 2,000-meter erg score. Nominees must be eligible student-athletes who have competed in their teams' varsity boat in 75 percent of races this season.

These athletes will be eligible for All-America selection following the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships May 27-29 on Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif.
