The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association released its 2012 postseason honors Tuesday, and a number of SSC student-athletes were recognized.
Nova Southeastern placed three rowers on the Division II Pocock All-America Team. The Sharks’ Lauren Boudreau was a First-Team All-America selection. Also being honored by the CRCA were Heather Clayton and Amanda Craig, who were Second-Team All-America selections.
Boudreau, Stephanie Hauck, and Mallorie Reinecke were named 2012 CRCA Scholar Athletes.
For a rower to receive Scholar Athlete consideration, they must post a 3.5 cumulative grade point average or higher for their career and be in their second, third or fourth year of eligibility.
Also named as Scholar Athletes were Barry's Jennifer Feriozzi, Renee Forcier, and Courtney Greene; Florida Tech's Kathleen OrRico and Jenna Philipp; and Rollins' Michelle Assaly, Seonag Doherty, Kimberly Gossard, Kathryn Hoyer, and Andrea Micci.
Boudreau has been a staple in the Sharks’ varsity eight boat this season, contributing to four victories this spring, including the FIRA Championships and SSC Championships. She was the seven seat for the varsity eight at the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta in which NSU finished as the silver medalist. Boudreau is a biology/pre-med major.
Clayton and Craig have each held down positions in the Sharks’ varsity four boat, as coxswain and rower, respectively. Beginning with NSU’s win at the SIRA Championships, where the Sharks topped a field of 25, the varsity four with Clayton and Craig has won has three straight races. The Sharks’ varsity four helped NSU secure its fifth SSC Championship with a win and then went on to a gold medal finish at the Dad Vail Regatta.
