Three Shorewomen Named CRCA National Scholar-Athletes

CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Three members of the Washington College women's rowing team, which placed eighth in the squad's sixth consecutive NCAA Division III Championship last month, have been named National Scholar-Athletes by the College Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA). 

To be named a National Scholar-Athlete, a student-athlete must be competing in at least her second year of eligibility, must have rowed in one of her team's NCAA Championship-eligible boats in at least 75% of spring races, and must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 through the fall 2016 semester. 

Juniors Emily Booth (Camden, Del./Caesar Rodney) and Kelin McCloskey (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville) were named National Scholar-Athletes for the second year in a row, while sophomore Olivia Robb (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville) was a first-time honoree.

Robb (coxswain) and McCloskey (four seat) competed in the Shorewomen's first varsity eight this spring. Booth was the coxswain of the Shorewomen's second varsity eight.
