NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Nine members of the Yale women's crew were recently honored by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association. Seniors Stephanie Madner and Caroline Nash were selected first team All-New England, while junior Catherine McDermott earned second team recognition. In addition, Madner, Margaret Ayers, Dara Dickson, Alexandra Fields, Nikki Grigg, Elizabeth Kalina and Lauren Ross were named Scholar Athletes.

The all-region selections were evaluated on the strength of their team's regional finish, coaches recommendations and 2,000-meter erg score.

The scholar athletes all had a 3.5 or better grade point average and rowed in NCAA eligible boats for a minimum of 75 percent of the spring races.
