Bertasjus Becomes USC's First Three-Time All-American

June 8, 2010

Senior Liene Bertasjus earned Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association 2010 Pocock All-American first team honors - becoming USC's first-ever three-time All-American -- while sophomores Ivana Filipovic and Anna Wierzbowska both earned CRCA All-American second team honors, the CRCA announced on Monday.

Bertasjus also earned All-American first team notice in 2008 and 2009 while Filipovic and Wierzbowska earned their first All-American honors. The only other year USC had three All-Americans was in 2007.
