Warner Selected A First Team All-American
TACOMA, Wash. – Senior Mandy Warner wrapped up her Logger rowing career on Saturday on the water. However, she didn't leave without honors as she was selected to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association's Division III Pocock All-American First Team.
Warner, a senior from Silverdale, Wash., earned her first career All-American honors and became the first Logger since Sarah Moody in 2010 to earn the honor.
"Mandy's commitment to the team and competitive energy has inspired all those around her," said head coach Marsa Daniel. "This season, Mandy set challenging goals for herself and worked determinedly to make them a reality."
All-Americans are selected based on a number of criteria. The strength of schedule, regular season record, end of season regatta results, nomination rank, coach's comments and the student-athlete's 2,000-meter erg score are all taken into account.
A senior and team captain, Warner sat in the stroke seat of the women's varsity eight boat this season. She was one of nine student-athletes selected as a First Team All-American.
The Logger wrapped up the 2012 season with a tenth consecutive trip to the NCAA Championships this weekend.
"On the water, she has continually demonstrated her commitment to work hard everyday," concluded Daniel. "Her maturity and drive have made her a joy to coach and she has left a lasting impression on the program."
