Katie Dick Named to CRCA All-America Second Team

June 8, 2010

PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University sophomore rower Katie Dick has been named to the 2010 Pocock All-America Second Team, the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) announced this week.

A sophomore from Victoria, British Columbia, Dick is in her first season with the varsity eight, which finished 14th at the 2010 NCAA Rowing Championships in Gold River, Calif. May 30. As a team the Cougars have been ranked as high as 10th in the country and finished 13th overall at the championships.

Dick was named to the CRCA All-West Region First Team in May, making her eligible to receive All-America accolades. She also picked up All-Pacific-10 Conference honors last month.

Dick becomes the sixth Cougar rower to earn second team All-America honors. The last time a Cougar earned first or second team honors came in 2008 when Irena Neffeova was named to the first team and Karin Brevick picked up second team accolades.

In order to earn the honors, a student-athlete must have competed in 75 percent of the spring races and been nominated by her institution. The selections are based on the strength of finish of the institution's varsity eight within the country, coaches' comments and the student-athlete's 2k erg score.

Six rowers from Pacific-10 schools were named to the 22-member first team, while eight made the 20-person second team.
