Volker has helped lead UCLA to its fourth team appearance in the NCAA Championships in the last five seasons as an integral member of the Bruins’ varsity eight crew. This marks Volker’s first-ever selection to the All-Pac-12 team.
Earlier this week, Volker captured CRCA first-team All-West Region acclaim after having been named a second-team selection in 2013. A senior from Berriedale, Australia, Volker joined UCLA’s rowing program in the fall of 2012 after two seasons at the University of Tasmania in Australia.
In 2013, Volker earned second-team CRCA All-America honors and second-team All-West Region acclaim.
No. 9-ranked UCLA rowing team will open its competition at the 2014 NCAA Championships on Friday in Indianapolis, Ind. UCLA’s varsity eight race will begin at 9:30 a.m. (ET).
