CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Washington College senior student-athletes Jackie Creitz (Schnecksville, Pa./Parkland) and Anna Inserra (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollows Hills West) have been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Division III Academic All-District II Women's At-Large Team. The team, voted on by CoSIDA District II members, is comprised of 14 Division III student-athletes with outstanding academic and athletic credentials chosen from 14 eligible "at-large" sports from institutions in Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.
Creitz is a two-sport student-athlete, competing in rowing and swimming. A 2016 first-team All-American in rowing, she has rowed for four consecutive Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference (MARC) Championship teams and will row in her fourth straight NCAA Division III Championship regatta later this month. Also a 2016 All-MARC selection, she is the third-fastest rower in team history based on ergometer scores. She is a three-time Academic All-MARC qualifier in rowing and a three-time Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll qualifier in swimming, a sport where she was one of her team's top backstrokers. A Math and Computer Science major, she carried a 3.74 grade-point average into this semester.
Inserra, a lacrosse player, had her senior season limited to six games due to injury, but was named the 2016 Centennial Conference Women's Scholar-Athlete of the Year for all sports and the Centennial Conference Women's Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She was a 2016 All-Centennial Conference second-team selection and is a two-time Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll qualifier. She is the 2017 recipient of the College's Doris T. Bell '50 Award, recognizing the school's graduating senior female student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average. A Chemistry major, she carried a 4.0 grade-point average into this semester.
The CoSIDA Women's At-Large Academic All-America/All-District program recognizes female student-athletes from the 14 women's NCAA-sponsored sports who do not have their own CoSIDA Academic All-America programs - beach volleyball, bowling, rowing, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, and water polo.
Creitz and Inserra advance to the ballot for the CoSIDA Women's At-Large Academic All-America team, which will be voted on by the CoSIDA Academic All-America committee.
