Tolson Named First Team All-Region Selection

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association has announced several of its post season awards, and several members of the Yale women's crew have been honored. Senior Claire Tolson earned first-team All-New England recognition, while eight Bulldogs – Martha Cosgrove, Christine Devlin, Amina Edwards, Kara Freeman, Laura Grimbergen, Kristjana Gudmundsson, Maddie Lips and Colleen Maher were selected as Scholar Athletes.

Tolson, who helped Yale's varsity eight post a 9-2 record during the regular season, was honored for the second straight year. She earned second team All-New England honors last spring.

The rowers were selected on their team's regional finish, coaches' recommendations and 2,000-meter erg score.

The eight scholar athletes all had a 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA and rowed as part of one of the three NCAA eligible crews.
