NEW YORK - Three Columbia women's soccer players were named to the All-Ivy League teams, the league office announced Thursday afternoon.

Senior Liz Wicks was a second team selection while classmates Lillian Klein and Ashlin Yahr gained honorable mention.

Wicks, an honorable mention All-Ivy honoree a year ago, had a strong season in the midfield for Columbia. A dynamic two-player, Wicks scored two goals late in regulation to help knock off Dartmouth on October 22. The equalizing goal came with less than eight minutes to play and then Wicks found the back of the net with 17 seconds left to lift the Lions to a dramatic 2-1 win.

Klein had an outstanding season in goal for Columbia, earning her second straight All-Ivy League honorable mention. Klein started 14 times and registered a 1.26 goals against average. Having made a number of highlight-reel saves during her career, Klein has also garnered NSCAA Scholar All-East and CoSIDA Academic All-District awards during her tenure.

Yahr concludes a stellar career with her fourth straight All-Ivy League selection. Named Ivy League Player of the Week four times during her career, Yahr is Columbia's second leading goal scorer in a career. This season, she finished with four goals and two assists and put home a pair of goals during a three-minute span in a 2-2 draw against Yale late in the Ivy League season.
