PRINCETON -- Alex Peyton and Cara Worden were named honorable mention All-Ivy League by the league's coaches, the Ivy office announced Thursday.

It is the second straight honorable mention all-league honor for the junior Peyton, while Worden earns the honor in her freshman season.

While playing in all 46 games, Peyton led the team with seven home runs, hitting .286 on the season with her 42 hits ranking third on the team. When not playing first base, Peyton was one of Princeton's two primary pitchers, accruing a 6-14 record with a 3.24 ERA.

Worden played in 39 games before suffering a season-ending injury in the season's second-to-last weekend at Columbia. The catcher hit .266 with five doubles and a home run among her 25 hits.
