The announcement of the ACRA All-American awards for rowing is eagerly anticipated at this time of year and the College of Charleston’s club team scored two on these coveted teams.
The American Collegiate Rowing Association is a national association of member schools that stretches from coast to coast and includes many of the bigger schools.
Liza Romanova, the current captain of the club, placed on the first team of the Academic All-American Team. A GPA of 3.85 or higher is required for consideration. Only 60 rowers achieved this distinction.
Ally Lesher, a senior and former captain of the squad, earned a spot on the All-American Team based on rowing performances, career results, and coach recommendations. Only 17 rowers made this year’s women’s team.
Both rowers deserve a rousing round of applause for this latest recognition and their long-standing efforts on behalf of our club team.
