Stanford Women's Crew is pleased to announce six athletes have been recognized by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association for the 2004 All-Region and Scholar Athlete awards.
For the All-Region award junior Missy Fiesler was named to the First Team and senior Melissa Haury was named Second Team. The All-Region awards are designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains during the current season. The nomination criteria include meeting eligibility rules as defined by her institution, participating in at least 75% of the season's races in the varsity boat, and the student-athlete's Head Coach must be a member in good standing of the CRCA. A maximum of four athletes plus one coxswain per institution may be nominated.
The All-Region teams were selected as follows: Teams with Varsity 8 boats that were ranked in the top 6 regionally as of the final NCAA Regional Ranking had athletes automatically distributed to the All-Region teams. At-large selections (for rowers from teams that have Varsity 8 boats which finished outside the top 6 regionally) were chosen by the Division I Awards committee based on boat performance, 2K erg score and coaches comments.
Stanford's Scholar Athlete receipts were: Melissa Haury (3.66, Human Biology), Molly Loeb (3.59, Political Science), Ashley Maloney (3.52, Earth Systems), and Margit Zwemer (3.64, Math). The National Scholar-Athlete award is designed to recognize the outstanding academic accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains during the current season.
