NEW YORK - Columbia volleyball first-year Caitlin Brenton was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week, it was announced by the Ivy League office Tuesday. Sophomores Savannah Fletcher and Madeline Rumer were both named to the weekly Honor Roll for their contributions last weekend. 

Brenton (San Jose, Calif.) had one of her best weekends wearing a Lion uniform thus far, hitting a stellar .487 and compiling nine total blocks in leading the Lions to a home sweep of Princeton and Penn.

The first-year outside hitter started the weekend tying her collegiate career high with eight kills and hitting .571 in Columbia's win over Princeton. The next night against Penn, she set a new high with 12 kills, hitting .440 in the five-set win over the Quakers. She also had five blocks, her second highest total of the season.

Brenton becomes the second Lion in school history to be named Ivy League Rookie of the Week. Junior Megan Gaughn was the first player to earn the honor in 2009.

Fletcher made the honor roll after hitting .462 in two matches, including five total blocks and a 2.40 kills per set average. Rumer hit .396 in the two wins, with a 4.17 kills per set average, including a service ace and two total blocks. 

The Lions had a 3-0 win over Princeton Friday, and beat Penn at home, 3-2 on Saturday. The win over the Quakers was the first for Columbia since 2005, and the first ever under head coach Jon Wilson. With the sweep, the Lions are off to a 4-1 start to the Ivy League season, the best start in program history.
