    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 22, 2012) – Rutgers senior rower Katherine Geithman (Falls Church, Va.) was named to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) All-Mid-Atlantic Region First Team, the organization announced on Tuesday.

    Geithman, a psychology and political science major, was also named to the All-BIG EAST First Team. The senior – a three-year captain – was named to the all-conference second team last season.

    Nominated student-athletes are evaluated on the strength of their team's regional finish, coaches’ recommendations and 2,000-meter erg score. Nominees must be eligible student-athletes who have competed in their teams' varsity boat in 75 percent of races this season.

    These athletes will be eligible for All-America awards selection following the NCAA Rowing Championships.

    In addition, six Scarlet Knights were named CRCA Scholar-Athletes for the 2012 season. Julia Dawidowicz (accounting), Geithman (political science/psychology), Emily Nowlin (nutritional sciences), Katie Quinn (criminal justie/sociology), Brittany Somers (psychology), Kara Trivolis (criminal justice) were all honored for their work in the classroom.

    All student-athletes achieved the criteria described below to be named a CRCA National Scholar-Athlete.

    The student-athlete has met all eligibility rules as defined by her institution. The student-athlete was in her second, third, or fourth year of eligibility. The student-athlete rowed in her institution's NCAA or IRA eligible boat(s) for a minimum of 75 percent of the current spring races or racing in a regional conference event. The head coach of the student-athletes’ institution was a member in good standing of the CRCA as of May 1, 2012.
