SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference is pleased to announce the 2015-16 West Coast Conference Women's Rowing All-Academic Team. A record-setting six senior student-athletes make their third straight and final appearances on the first team. 

Creighton’s Sarah Birnbaum and Anna Cheek, Loyola Marymount’s Monica Weaser and Portland’s Maggie Keller, Kelsey Kincaid and Molly Templin capped successful careers with a third first team nod. Loyola Marymount’s Ashley Brown, Saint Mary’s Julie Greco and San Diego’s Meredith Hoggatt all were recognized as first team recipients for the second time. 

All told, six West Coast Conference women’s rowers own a cumulative GPA of 3.80 or better and 41 posted a GPA of 3.50 or better. 

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to her team. No fewer than 76 WCC student-athletes met the academic criteria for women’s rowing.
