PRINCETON, N.J. - Havard senior Ali Farag (Cairo, Egypt) was named the Ivy League's Men's Squash Player of the Year for the third time in his career on Wednesday when the League announced its annual awards. 

Farag, who previously won the award in 2010, 2012 and shared in with Princeton's Todd Harrity in 2013, joins Mauricio Sanchez of Princeton (2007-09), Yasser El-Halaby of Princeton (2003-05) and Kenton Jernigan of Harvard (1984-86) as three-time winners of the award. 

Earlier this month, Farag won his second CSA Individual National Championship in three years to cap off a stellar collegiate career. Farag finished the 2013-14 season with a perfect 20-0 mark as an individual, helping the Crimson to their 31st national title. He was also the recipient of the 2014 Skillman Award, the highest individual honor in men's college squash. For his three-year collegiate career, Farag finished 52-2.

Farag's teammate Dylan Murray (Bronxville, N.Y.) was named the League's Rookie of the Year. Murray finished his freshman campaign 13-2 overall in helping the Crimson to their Potter Cup crown. Playing from mostly the No. 3 position, he went 6-1 in Ivy League action during the season with the lone setback coming due to an injury withdrawl. 

Eight of the ten All-Ivy selections were unanimous selections by the coaches. Harvard had three selections to the 10-person squad, while Princeton and Cornell each had two. Farag and Murray were joined on the squad by Harvard's Brandon McLaughlin, Brown's Blake Reinson, Ramit Tandon of Columbia, Nick Sachvie and Aditya Jagtap of Cornell, Princeton's Samuel Kang and Tyler Osborne, and Yale's Neil Martin
