PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League swept the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association's 2011 Division I National Coach of the Year Awards as Princeton's Lori Dauphiny was named Coach of the Year and Brown's Phoebe Murphy was honored as Assistant Coach of the Year.

Voted on by the CRCA membership, these awards are intended to recognize head coaches whose teams have had outstanding success throughout the current season and who have demonstrated a high level of professionalism and integrity as a coach.
