Six women's rowers named Scholar-Athletes by CRCA

TACOMA, Washington – Six Puget Sound women's rowers were recently named Scholar Athletes by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association.

Kyra Farr, Jill La Fetra, Leslie Machabee, Monica Schweitz, Katie Snodgrass, and Lauren Wright each received the academic honor.

In order to qualify, student-athletes must have rowed in at least 75 percent of WV8 or W2V8 competitions, be in at least their second year of eligibility, and hold a 3.50 cumulative GPA through the Fall 2018 semester.

The six aforementioned Loggers helped lead Puget Sound to a dominant showing in the Logger Invitational (March 16). The WV8 beat Pacific and Lewis & Clark in separate duals. Against the Boxers, the Loggers timed in at 7:14.5, more than one minute ahead of Pacific. The second time around, Loggers improved their time by one second against Lewis & Clark, beating the Pioneers by 45 seconds.

Puget Sound placed second in both the Lamberth Cup (April 7) and the Northwest Conference Championship (April 20). During the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) Championships (April 27-28), Puget Sound's W2V8 qualified for the grand finale where it finished sixth overall.
