Reynolds Named to First Team, Robb Second as Shorewomen Have Multiple All-Americans for First Time in 16 Years
CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Washington College rower Erika Reynolds (Finksburg, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and coxswain Olivia Robb (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville) have been named 2019 College Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Division III All-Americans. Reynolds was named to the first team while Robb, now a two-time All-American, was named to the second team. Both were juniors this past academic year. This is the first time in 16 years that the Washington College women's rowing team has had multiple All-America selections in the same season.
Robb, who was named a first-team All-American in 2018, and Reynolds were key members of the Shorewomen's first varsity eight this season, helping lead the Shorewomen to their seventh consecutive Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference (MARC) Championship and seventh consecutive NCAA Division III Championship appearance. As a team, the Shorewomen placed eighth overall at the NCAA Championship; the first varsity eight took seventh after winning their petite final in dramatic fashion. Reynolds and Robb were both named to the 2019 All-MARC Varsity Team, marking the second All-MARC honor for both student-athletes.
This is the fourth time in team history the Shorewomen have had multiple All-Americans in the same season; the Shorewomen had two All-America selections three years in a row from 2001 through 2003. Robb becomes the program's fifth multiple-time All-American, joining Sara Beegle '04 (2001 second team, 2003 first team, 2004 first team), Mickey Fili '15 (2013 first team, 2014 first team, 2015 first team), Anna Germain '03 (2002 second team, 2003 first team), and Amy Uebel '06 (2005 second team, 2006 second team). Reynolds is the seventh student-athlete in the program's history to be named to the first team, joining Beegle, Jackie Crietz '17 (2016), Fili, Germain, Caroline Perry '11 (2008), and Robb.
This is the seventh consecutive season that the Shorewomen have had at least one All-America selection, breaking the previous program best of six straight seasons (2001-06).
