May 28, 2014

WASHINGTON – The Georgetown University women’s rowing program had 14 student-athletes recognized as a 2014 Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Scholar Athlete, as announced by the organization on Monday.

The 14 Hoyas named to the list were Sarah Arcos (Long Beach, Calif./Long Beach Polytech)Jen Bisgaier (Afton, Va./Western Albemarle), Emily Buongiorno (Newton Square, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy), Laura Collins (Caribou, Maine/Caribou), Jocelyn Hlawaty (Glen Ridge, N.J./Glen Ridge), Savannah Kochinke (San Francisco, Calif./The Lawrenceville School [N.J.]), Alex Livesay (Memphis, Tenn./Saint Agnes Academy), Katie McGowan (Potomac, Md./Walt Whitman), Mikaela Medeiros (Reno, Nev./Reno), Devon O’Brien (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City ), Margaret Rush (Fort Washington, Pa./Mount St. Joseph), Keara Schmeiser (Leonardtown, Md./St. Mary's Ryken), Clare Southern (Los Gatos, Calif./Presentation) and Ruth Speidel (Manlius, N.Y./Christian Brothers Academy).

Just last week, Collins was also named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team.

"I am very proud of these 14 student-athletes and their academic accomplishments,” Head Coach Miranda Paris said. “I am also proud of our entire team and the environment we have created that supports academic and athletic success at a place as challenging as Georgetown. We believe academic and athletic success are mutually supportive endeavors, rather than mutually exclusive. Achievement in one area breeds achievement in others because they both come from hard work and determination."

To be named a CRCA Scholar Athlete, a student-athlete must meet five requirements. The student-athlete must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher for her career, must have met all qualifications as defined by her institution, be in her second, third or fourth year of eligibility, rowed in her institution's NCAA- or IRA-eligible boat(s) for a minimum of 75 percent of the current spring races or races in a regional conference event. Additionally, the head coach must be a member in good standing of the CRCA as of May 1, 2014.
