PHILADELPHIA – The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) has announced its Scholar Athlete and All-Region teams for women’s rowing at the NCAA Division I level, and the University of Pennsylvania had four women honored.
In order to be named a CRCA Scholar Athlete, student-athletes must achieve the criteria described below:
*The student-athlete has met all eligibility rules as defined by her institution
*The student-athlete is in her second, third or fourth year of eligibility
*The student-athlete rowed in her institution's NCAA or IRA eligible boat(s) for a minimum of 75% of the current spring races or racing in a regional conference event.
*The student-athlete has had a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher for her career (through the fall semester/quarter for the current competition year)
To attain All-Region status, nominated student-athletes are evaluated on the strength of their team's regional finish, coaches’ recommendations, and their 2,000-meter erg score. Nominees must be eligible student-athletes who have competed in their team’s varsity boat in 75 percent of races this season.
Sophomore Jenna Hebert was a double honoree. She was named first-team all-region (New England) as well as one of the Quakers’ four Scholar Athletes. Hebert has been an all-region selection each of the last two years. As a first-team all-region selection, Hebert is eligible for All-America honors, which will be announced following the NCAA Rowing Championships later this week.
