Lisa Boyce won the trophies that go with being the High Point Swimmer of the Meet and Career High Point Award winner. Unfortunately for the Tigers, the big team trophy headed a little up I-95 when the Ivy League women's swimming and diving championships ended.

Boyce won the 100 freestyle and was part of the winning 400 freestyle relay to give her 92 points this weekend, 371 points for her career and nine individual Ivy League championships. Harvard, though, took home the team championship, edging Princeton 1,409-1,384.

For the Tigers, it was a rare year leaving without the championship. Princeton, even with its second-place finish, has still won 11 of the last 15 Ivy titles.

"As reigning Ivy champion, I have to constantly remind myself and the team that when you win as many Ivy championships as we have — 11 in just the last 15 years alone — there is a permanent target on your back,” head coach Susan Teeter said. "You have to wear that target with pride and keep your eye on the prize. I love how this team has performed all year with class and integrity, representing Princeton and the program at a level that exceeds expectation. Win, lose or draw, I'll always be proud to coach this team."

Harvard began the day 28 points ahead of the Tigers and then stretched that lead to the point where the Crimson had clinched the title before the 400 free relay - the final event of the night at Brown.

"Harvard had the talent to win this meet on paper all year and we congratulate them on their title,” Teeter added. "We knew that the only way to win was to swim fast and dive as well as possible. Our team swam and dove very well and the numbers didn't fall our way. We are so proud of this team and the amazing continued success we have had with this program.”

Boyce won her ninth individual title by taking the 100 freestyle in 48.92, which was one half-second better than runner-up Shelby Fortin of Penn, but even with that win, Harvard's lead was 108 points after the event.

After Nikki Larson and Beverly Nguyen went 2-4 in the 200 butterfly, Princeton's Caitlin Chambers put up the sixth-best score in Ivy history to win the three-meter diving. Still, Harvard went 3-4-5 to  clinch it.

Boyce shared the High Point Swimmer Award with Yale's Eva Fabian.
