LOS ANGELES - UCLA rowers Meaghan Volker and Alice White have earned NCAA Division I All-Region honors as announced by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) this week.

Volker captured CRCA first-team All-West Region acclaim after having been named a second-team selection in 2013. White secured CRCA second-team accolades for the first time in her collegiate career.

Volker has been a major contributor in UCLA’s varsity eight crew the last two seasons, having joined the Bruins’ rowing program as a junior in the fall of 2012 after two years at the University of Tasmania in her home country of Australia. In 2013, Volker earned second-team CRCA All-America honors and second-team All-West Region acclaim.

White, a sophomore from Hamilton, New Zealand, has been a mainstay in the Bruins’ varsity eight crew this season. As a freshman, she primarily rowed four or five seat in the V8+ boat. Both Volker and White have played instrumental roles in helping lead UCLA to back-to-back NCAA Championship appearances.

In addition, seven UCLA rowers have captured CRCA National Scholar-Athlete honors. Seniors Carolina Paini, Meaghan Volker and Deanna Wong, juniors Chloe Kojima, Kendal Mitchell and Victoria Vander Poel and sophomore Alice White have earned the national scholar-athlete award.

Student-athletes who row in their institution’s NCAA eligible boats and compete in a minimum of 75 percent of that season’s races are eligible for scholar-athlete honors. Likewise, these student-athletes must maintain a minimum 3.5 cumulative grade point average (first-year students are unable to qualify).

Paini has secured CRCA National Scholar-Athlete acclaim for the third consecutive season, while Kojima and Mitchell have earned the national award for the second straight year.
