WASHINGTON – Georgetown University women’s rowing junior Laura Collins (Caribou, Maine/Caribou) has been named to the Academic All-Patriot League Women’s Rowing Team, as announced by the league on Thursday. The 11-member academic team is voted on by the Patriot League’s nine women’s rowing sports information directors.
Collins, who has a cumulative 3.855 GPA through the 2013 semester, rowed in the 7th seat of the Hoyas’ varsity eight boat this year. The junior helped Georgetown’s V8 to a 6-1 record in dual meets as well as grand final appearances in both the Eastern Association of Women’s Rowing Colleges (EAWRC) Sprints and the Patriot League Championship.
At the Patriot League Championship, held this past weekend on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, Mass., the V8 won its morning heat in a time of 7:29.918, the second-fastest time overall in the heats, to advance to the afternoon’s grand final. The Blue & Gray won a tight race with the crew from Bucknell, defeating the Bison by a margin of just over one second (7:30.980). In the grand final, the Hoyas bested their morning time by more than two seconds, crossing the finish line in 7:27.287. However, the Blue & Gray placed fifth in the event, behind the boats from Boston University (7:14.580), Bucknell (7:18.467), MIT (7:19.612) and Navy (7:21.845).
"Laura is a top performer and leader on our team,” Georgetown Head Coach Miranda Paris said. “As a former competitive skier and walk-on three years ago, Laura immediately made an impact our team, making the varsity eight in her first year of rowing in college. She is a highly-intelligent person and athlete and has played a big role in helping our team develop over the past three years."
