Aug. 9, 2001
Former Cal Women's Crew standouts Megan Dirkmaat ('00) and Caroline Ingham ('00) have been named to the U.S. National team roster and are scheduled to compete in the women's eight event at the 2001 FISA World Rowing Championships August 19-26 in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Both athletes were key contributors in the Cal women's varsity eight that won bronze and finished fourth at the 1999 and 2000 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships, respectively.
'Both Caroline and Dirks are terrific athletes and wonderful people,' said Cal head coach Dave O'Neilll. 'I am very happy for them as is everyone at Cal. I am glad they have pursued their national team ambitions, and they will have great success this year and the years ahead.'
