Five Members of the Brown Women's Crew Team Selected to USRowing National Team Camps; Markowitz to Compete in the Maccabiah Games

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND – Five members of the nationally-ranked Brown women's crew team earned themselves invitations to USRowing's National Team Camps this summer, allowing them to use the warmer months to hone their skills and prove their mettle against some of the most elite collegiate rowers in the country. Additionally, rising sophomore Sigal Markowitz (Long Beach, NY) earned a spot on the US team that will compete in the Maccabiah Games in Israel from July 17 to 30.

Rising junior Coco Schoeller (West Palm Beach, FL) was selected to the Women's U23 National Team Selection Camp as a sweep rower, joining 25 other elite collegiate student-athletes. The selection camp, which began in Princeton, New Jersey on June 5, will select the women's eight and quad that will compete at the 2013 World Rowing Under 23 Championships from July 24-28 in Linz, Austria. Boat selection may continue until July 10, but it could be finalized prior to that date. 

Sage Green (Buffalo, NY), a rising senior, will be one of eight student-athletes to participate in the Women's Pre-Elite National Team Camp from July 8 to August 11 at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York. The Pre-Elite Camp is focused on developing athletes for the Under 23 and Senior National Teams, and the goal is to teach the skills necessary to compete at the elite level. Additionally, campers will compete in the Canadian Henley Regatta in St. Catharines, Ontario in August.

Three Bears partipated in the Women's National Team Freshman Camp, as rising sophomores Logan Harris (Stinson Beach, CA), Signe Henderson (Berkeley, CA) and Ellie Place (Bellevue, WA) were amongst the 18 student-athletes who were selected to the camp, held from June 10-16 at the University of Washington in Seattle. The Freshman Camp is for athletes with elite level potential and aspiration, but who have only one or two years of collegiate rowing experience, and seeks to expose them to the National Team experience.
