Righi Earns All-Ivy Honors

March 6, 2006

Alex Righi was awarded All-Ivy honors in three events Sunday for his outstanding performance at the weekend's EISL Championships.

Righi was named to the first team for his victories in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle. He was also named to the second team for his second place finish in the 100-yard backstroke.

As well as winning two events and coming second in a third event, Righi also set Yale records in all three of his individual events. He is the first Yale representative on the All-Ivy League first team since diver Josh Gallant in 2002.
