Five Oarswomen Earn All-Region Honors

May 23, 2005

The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) announced its 2005 All-Region selections and five members of the Brown women's crew were honored. Senior Catherine Starr and junior Meg Anderson were named First Team All-Region while Deborah Dryer, Gillian Almy and Mira Mehta earned Second Team All-Region honors.

The awards, presented by Pocock, recognize the outstanding accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains this season. Thirty-nine schools are represented on the first and second-team All-Region, led by eight institutions, including Brown, that placed five rowers each.

All five were a part of the Bears' varsity eight boat, which placed first at the NCAA Championships last season. The five will look to lead Brown to its second straight NCAA crown this weekend in Sacramento, CA.
