Spartans Earn CRCA, Big Ten Honors

May 30, 2013

East Lansing, Mich. -- - The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) has announced its 2013 DI All-Region Selections, as well as its scholar athlete selections for the 2013 season. In addition, the Big Ten announced its Academic All-Big Ten selections for spring sports, and MSU was represented on all three prestigious lists.

Freshman Katie Cromie (County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland) is a First Team All-Central Region pick. She recently earned First Team All-Big Ten honors, and shared the Big Ten Freshman of the Year award. She was also voted the team's Most Valuable Rower by her teammates, the first time in program history that the award was given to a first-year rower.

Cromie rowed every race this year in the varsity eight. She helped that boat to a fourth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships on May 19, as well as a fourth-place team finish. After starting the season in the four seat, she moved into the stroke seat for the final three races of the year, and helped a young varsity eight rapidly improve over the final weeks of the season. She was one of six freshman or novice rowers in MSU's varsity eight boat at the Big Ten Championships. Cromie is now eligible for All-America honors, which will be decided after the upcoming NCAA Championships.

From Michigan State's rowing program, 23 athletes earned Academic honors from either the Big Ten, CRCA, or both. The CRCA Scholar-Athlete honorees own a 3.5 cumulative GPA with at least sophomore academic standing, and rowed in the NCAA-eligible boats (varsity eight, second varsity eight, or varsity four) for at least 75% of the season. The Academic All-Big Ten selections are those athletes with a 3.0 and sophomore standing.
