Dartmouth head coach Danielle Spencer and Princeton head coach Chris Sailer (Haverford High) were dubbed Co-Coaches of the Year for the second-straight season. Spencer led the Big Green to their first Ivy League women’s lacrosse championship since 2011, while Sailer coached the Tigers to their sixth-straight.

In her third season at the helm, Spencer led Dartmouth to its first Ivy League title since 2011 and its 12th all-time. The Big Green will be appearing in back-to-back Ivy League Women’s Lacrosse Tournaments for the first time since a four-year run from 2010-13.
In her 33rd season leading the Princeton program, Sailer coached the Tigers to their sixth-straight Ivy League championship and League-leading 15th overall—all coming during her storied tenure. The Tigers are also the No. 1 seed in the Ivy League Women’s Lacrosse Tournament for the fourth time in the event’s 10-year history.
