Teff Selected To CRCA Pocock All-America Second Team

May 31, 2006

The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) announced its All-America teams for the 2006 season on Wednesday. The awards, presented by Pocock, recognize the outstanding accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains for the spring season. UCLA freshman Vanessa Teff (Middleton, WI/Edgewood HS) was one of 42 student-athletes honored, being named to the second team.

Teff, who was also named to the CRCA All-West Region and the Pac-10 All-Conference teams, was a member of UCLA's varsity eight that finished in 12th place at the NCAA Championships last weekend. Teff was the only freshman on the All-Pac-10 team and one of just three freshmen on the All-America team, joining Cal coxswain Krista Ellis and Tennessee's Erin-Monique Shelton. Teff is also the second All-American in UCLA's history, following in the footsteps of Kristin Bixel, who was honored in 2005.
