Roman Named to CRCA All-America Second Team
June 5, 2012
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Washington State University senior rower Lisa Roman has been named to the 2012 Pocock All-America Second Team, the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) announced this week.
Roman (Langley, British Columbia) completed her third season with the Cougar rowing team, having rowed in the varsity eight boat all three years. Last season she was named to the Pacific-10 All-Conference team and represented Canada at the Under-23 World Rowing Championships.
Washington State placed sixth at this year's Pac-12 Championships and recorded team victories over Oregon State and Gonzaga during the spring season.
Roman becomes the eighth Cougar to pick up second team honors, as Sarah Wolff earned the accolades last year and Katie Dick the season before. Last season WSU had two honorees, as Corinna Sharick was named first team All-America, marking the third time the Cougars had multiple honorees in a single season.
Roman was named to the CRCA All-West Region First Team in May, which made her eligible to receive All-America 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 Pac-12 schools were named to the 23-member first team, while four made the 21-person second team.
