Women’s Crew’s Madden, Mundelius Garner CRCA All-America Honors

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Brown University women's crew juniors Cicely Madden and Jennifer Mundelius have earned CRCA First Team All-America and CRCA Second Team All-America honors respectively, the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association announced on Thursday night.

Both earned All-America accolades for the first time after the duo raced in the Bears' first varsity eight, placing second at the Ivy League Championship and eighth at the NCAA Championships. The pair led the program to a first-place team finish at the Ivy Championship and an eighth-place team finish at the NCAA Championships.

A native of Weston, Mass., Madden has rowed with the Bears' first varsity eight in each of her first three seasons, earning All-Ivy honors three times, including First Team All-Ivy accolades in 2015. She also gained CRCA First Team All-Region 1 plaudits this spring and has helped the first varsity eight post an 89-28 overall record over the past three seasons.

A native of Danville, Calif., Mundelius took home All-America accolades after earning First Team CRCA All-Region 1 and Second Team All-Ivy accolades this spring. As a freshman and sophomore, she won a pair of Ivy League titles with the second varsity eight and captured an NCAA championship with the second varsity eight in 2015.

General requirements for nominating a student-athlete for CRCA post-season honors include: the student-athlete must meet all eligibility rules as defined by her institution, the student-athlete must have rowed at least 75 percent of the current spring season's races in the varsity boat (before and including May 19, 2017), the student-athlete must be nominated by her institution, and the head coach of the student-athlete's institution must be a member in good standing of the CRCA.

The nominated student-athletes are then selected to first and second teams based on the following criteria: strength of finish of the institution's varsity eight within the country, coach comments, and 2k erg score.
