NEW YORK – Columbia sophomore Gabby Kozlowski was unanimously selected to the 2010 All-Ivy League first team in a vote of the league's eight head coaches, the league office announced on Wednesday.  Senior Julia Garrison was named to the second team, marking the fourth straight year that Garrison has earned All-Ivy accolades.

"We are proud of Gabby and Julia's recognition on the All-Ivy League teams based on their outstanding seasons," head coach Marybeth Freeman said. "Having only two honorees this season does not adequately depict the contributions that other members of our team made this season, since they were a huge reason for our successes this year."

Kozlowski exploded on the offensive side of the field as a sophomore. Kozlowski quadrupled her goal output from a season ago on her way to setting Columbia’s single season program record for goals in a season with 16. She added two assists for a total of 34 points.

Kozlowski netted seven goals and 16 points in Ivy League play, both of which were third best in the league. She is the first Lion to be a unanimous selection to the All-Ivy first team since Megan Davison '09CC and Gena Miller '09CC accomplished the feat in 2007.

Garrison started all 17 games in the midfield for the Lions, racking up 11 goals and four assists for 26 points.  In Ivy League, the co-captain scored six goals in seven games, which tied for fourth within the league. 

Garrison finished her fantastic four-year career second all-time in goals (29), fifth all-time in assists (13) and second all-time in points (71).

Columbia finished the 2010 season at 10-7 and with a 3-4 mark in Ivy League play under the direction of first-year head coach Marybeth Freeman.  It marked the fourth consecutive winning season for Columbia.
