2014 ACRA All-American - Jenn Varallo
The American Collegiate Rowing Association (ACRA) has announced the All-American boats for 2014. Selections for the All-American boats are based on 2k test scores, career racing results, accomplishments within the team, individual performance and the coach's recommendation. Varsity Woman, Jenn Varallo '16, was selected for the ACRA All-American Third Team. This is the first time that a Marquette rower has been chosen for one of these boats. Congratulations to Jenn on receiving this great honor! A complete listing of all honorees can be found here.
ACRA National Championship Recap
This May, Marquette attended the American Collegiate Rowing Association (ACRA) National Championship Regatta in Gainesville, Georgia for the first time in the team's history. Held at the Lake Lanier Rowing venue (home of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games), this regatta is the National Championship for club rowing teams, and draws in the best club teams in the country. Seniors Jacob Dahleen and Dan Otterson represented Marquette Crew in the Men's 2x event. After fighting their way and rowing twice on Saturday in heats and a repechage (6th in the heat, 5th in the repechage), the double made it into the Petite Final on Sunday. The Petite Final consisted of crews from University of Alabama - Huntsville, Seattle, Denver, University of California - Santa Barbara, UCLA, Georgia Tech, and William and Mary. The double rowed a time of 7:50, their fastest time of the weekend, and finished 7th in the Petite Final and 15th overall. Read more about the trip to ACRA at the athlete blog. Also, a very special thanks to the fine folks at Grand Valley State University Rowing and the University of Michigan Men's Rowing for their generosity and hospitality this past weekend. Overall, Marquette's first trip to ACRA was a great success, and we hope to send even more boats to this prestigious regatta next year!
