Tori Dozier Named All-Ivy Honorable Mention

Thu Nov 16, 2017

PRINCETON, N.J. – Dartmouth volleyball sophomore Tori Dozier was named to the All-Ivy League Honorable Mention Team, as announced by the conference office on Thursday. 

The Raleigh, North Carolina, native appeared in all 23 matches throughout her first season in Hanover, starting all but one of them. She was first on the team in assists (664), second in digs (218) and total blocks (65) and fourth in kills (94). In the all-time record book, she is 11th in most assists in a season and a career. 

Dozier had 13 double-doubles, had 30 or more assists in 13 matches and ended the season with a career-high 44 assists against Princeton.

"I am very glad to see Tori get recognized," head coach Gilad Doron said. "She has grown as a player and a person this season. We asked a lot of her and she, more times than not, delivered. I know she could not have done it without her teammates, and I am sure she will be even more motivated to prove herself in the years to come."

The Big Green concluded the 2017 season over the weekend with two huge wins over Penn and Princeton. This was the first time that Dartmouth had swept both teams in a single weekend since 2006. The Big Green took down the Quakers in three quick sets on Friday, but it took five to defeat the Tigers in the season finale the next day. Dartmouth ended the year with an overall record of 10-13 and was 6-8 in Ivy play.
