May 28, 2013
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Several student-athletes on the Boston College women's rowing team and assistant coach Amy Weatherby earned awards from the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association, the CRCA announced on Tuesday.
Sophomore Ellen Burr captured New England All-Region Second Team honors and stood as one of six BC rowers to gain Scholar Athlete status. Burr also gained All-ACC honors this spring.
In addition to Burr, senior Lauren Beebe, senior captain Sarah Loiselle, sophomore Alicia McKean, senior Stephanie Ragland, and sophomore Kaitlyn Votta garnered Scholar Athlete recognition. In order to qualify as a Scholar Athlete, a student-athlete must be in at least her second year of eligibility, maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA, and have raced in 75 percent of the team's events.
Weatherby earned New England Assistant Coach of the Year laurels after helping the Eagles take first place at the Green Monster Regatta, the Jesuit Invitational, and the BC-MIT Cup in 2012-13. Criteria for selection as an assistant coach of the year include displaying outstanding commitment to the program, making a significant impact on the success of the program, and demonstrating a high level of integrity.
"Amy is an outstanding leader, coach, and mentor, and this is an appropriate recognition for the impact she has had here at BC," head coach Steve Fiske said. "She is extremely passionate about the development and success of each individual on the team, and she sets a commendable example of hard work and commitment for our student-athletes."
