Three Women's Rowers Honored By Coaches Association

May 24, 2004

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - -

The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association has named Oregon State's Julia White-Hoppe to the All-West Region First Team; Natasha Nemyre and Andrea Pleven received CRCA National Scholar-Athlete awards.

White-Hoppe (Medford, Ore.), a CRCA first-team All-American last year as a junior, rowed the fifth seat in OSU's varsity eight, which finished seventh at the Pacific-10 Championships and received votes in the CRCA poll throughout the year.

Nemyre (Canby, Ore.), who rowed in the varsity eight seventh seat, is a junior in International Business and History.

Pleven (Victoria, British Columbia), a sophomore, is a Food Science and Technology major who rowed in the varsity eight third seat. In 2003, Pleven became the first freshman in OSU history to row in the first varsity eight.

Selections for the all-region teams were based on the following criteria: varsity eight boats ranked in the regional top six by the NCAA had athletes automatically placed on the all-region teams. At-large selections for rowers whose teams were not ranked among the top six were chosen by the Division I Awards committee based on boat performance, 2000-kilometer ergometer score, and coaches' comments.

Rowers had to meet their respective institution's eligibility requirements and participated in at least 75 percent of their team's races.

The same criteria apply for the sixth-annual scholar-athlete awards, with the additional requirement of a 3.5 grade-point average through the fall semester of the current season.
