CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – End of the year academic awards were handed out this week by the Patriot League, with 16 of those awards going to members of its 2012-13 women's openweight crew team as the conference announced its 2013 Women's Rowing Academic Honor Roll. A total of 113 student-athletes earned the distinction, with MIT's total was fifth among the league schools, trailing Colgate and Holy Cross by just one and Navy by two. Bucknell led the league with 34 on the honor roll.
Both of MIT's All-Patriot League rowers were among the list of honorees, with senior Jean Sack (Eureka, Calif.) and junior Erin Meyer (Austin, Texas) among the 16 Engineers on the list. Both were also on the honor roll last season as well, joining juniors Carmen Castanos (Gurnee, Ill.), Samantha Hartzell (Hudson, Wis.), Amy Taylor (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Michelle Victora (New Brighton, Minn.) and Katelyn Wolfenberger (Oneida, Wis.) and sophomore Rebecca Fuhlbrigge (Brookline, Mass.) as repeat selections from a year ago.
To be eligible for the spring Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 (4.0 scale) grade-point average in the spring semester and participate in one of the Patriot League's winter or spring championship sports.
