STANFORD, Calif. - Eleven Stanford women's rowers were honored by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Wednesday. Stanford landed five rowers on the CRCA All-West Region Teams while seven were named CRCA National Scholar-Athletes.
Stanford begins competition at the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Friday morning at Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif. The championships run from May 27-29.
Dawson, Logan, Luczak, Roddy and Weinrich are all part of Stanford's I Eight which will attempt to win its second individual national title this weekend. The quintet came with a half-second of capturing the Pac-10 gold medal two weeks ago at the Pac-10 Championships.
For Logan it was her fourth All-West Region selection. Luczak and Roddy earned their third All-Region selections, while Dawson and Weinrich each earned their first selection.
Criteria for the CRCA scholar-athlete award include maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or higher for a student-athlete's career.
Bolmer (3.71), Bryukhanov (3.53), Dao (3.51), Grover (3.90), Higgins (3.68), Roddy (3.83) and Vezie (3.86) all qualified for the honor. For Roddy, it is her third straight CRCA scholar-athlete honor, and Wednesday's announcement also marked the second consecutive honor for Higgins.
