WASHINGTON – Thirty four student-athletes from the Georgetown women’s rowing team were named to the Patriot League Women’s Rowing Academic Honor Roll on Thursday. A total of 202 student-athletes from the nine members of the Patriot League earned spots on the honor roll, with Georgetown placing the second most.
To be eligible for the spring Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average (GPA) in the spring semester and participate in one of the Patriot League’s winter or spring championship sports.
Highlighting the list for the Hoyas were freshmen Christina Johnson (Redding, Conn./Joel Barlow), a human science major, and junior Katie McGowan (Potomac, Md./Walt Whitman), a biology major. The duo were two of just 17 women’s rowing student-athletes to achieve a 4.0 GPA in the spring semester.
"I could not be more proud of our team and our commitment to the true student-athlete model,” said Head Coach Miranda Paris. “Over 90 percent of our team made the academic honor roll, which is an incredible accomplishment. Coaches, captains and teammates alike work hard to balance the pursuit of excellence in both academics and athletics. It speaks to our culture and the values that drive it.
The 34 student-athletes on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll come after 14 Hoyas were recognized as 2014 Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Scholar Athletes last month. To be named a CRCA Scholar Athlete, a student-athlete must meet five requirements, including maintaining a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher for her career.
Laura Collins (Caribou, Maine/Caribou) was also named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team in May. The 11-member academic team is voted on by the Patriot League’s nine women’s rowing sports information directors.
