Five members of the Brown swimming and diving team earned First Team All-Ivy honors for their performances at the Ivy Championships, held at Harvard.

She was also the only Ivy swimmer to achieve an automatic ("A") qualifying time for NCAA's in the 50 freestyle, earning Swimmer of the Meet honors for her performance. Daniels was also a Second Team selection in the 100-yard backstroke.

Senior Emily McCoy (Anchorage, AK), and sophomores Lauren Hinkson (Perrysburg, Ohio) and Eileen Robinson (Harbour Grace, NF) earned First Team honors as part of both the 200 and 400 free relay teams. McCoy also earned Second Team honors for her performance in the 100 and 200-yard freestyle.

Also earning First Team All-Ivy recognition was senior Lindsay Hoban (Duxbury, MA) for her performance in the 100-yard backstroke. Hoban, sophomore Elizabeth Wong (Santa Monica, CA) and freshman Karly Kopra (Kamuela, HI) earned second-team recognition for the 200-yard medley relay as well.
