ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – Twelve members of the UCF rowing team were named Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) scholar-athletes for the 2019 season.


For the third straight year, Grace Lindberg, Edvina Nesukaityte and Rachel Rabinowitz were tabbed for the accolade, while Mia Cleary and Julie Poulsen earned their second straight distinction.


Luci Derrick, Rusne Dziugyte, Ciera Jarrett, Nicole Mayer, Marija Medelinskaite, Shannon Perry and Maria Yim were all first-time honorees.
