ACRA All-Region and Academic All-American Athletes Announced

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

The American Collegiate Rowing Association proudly announces the sixth annual All-Region teams. ACRA consists of six regions of the United States. Coaches of each team could submit up to five candidates from their teams, and selections were made by the elected regional representative. The student-athlete must row in the team’s top boat. Other criteria used were: 2,000 meter erg scores, career racing results, accomplishments within the team, and the coach’s recommendation. These honorees will be recognized at the ACRA national championship on May 24 in Gainesville, GA. They will also be considered for ACRA All-American honors after the regatta concludes. Congratulations to all those who received this honor.
