Three Pios named CRCA Scholar Athletes

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Three Lewis & Clark women's rowers were selected as National Scholar-Athletes by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association, the organization announced last week.

Sophomores Natalie Stroud, Megan Glavin and Elly McClane earned the distinction, which requires honorees to hold a 3.5 cumulative grade-point average for their career and participate in 75 percent of the team's spring races or a regional conference event.

The award is the second this season for Stroud, who along with teammate Ryan LaVigne was named All-Northwest Conference at April's NWC Championships.

The Pioneers women's varsity eight finished second in their heat at the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships the following week, eventually finishing sixth in the grand final.

In addition to their contributions as student-athletes, Glavin is an editor for The Meridian, an annual undergraduate publication from Lewis & Clark's International Affairs department, and McClane serves as a tour guide for the Office of Admissions.
