Cambridge, Mass. (July 23) -- MIT women's lightweight crew senior Annika Rollock (Lafayette, N.J.) has been named as a Pocock/CRCA All-American for her performance in the 2017-18 season. To be eligible, student-athletes must have rowed in at least 75 percent of the season's races in the varsity boat, been nominated by her institution and the head coach of the institution must be a member in good standing of the CRCA.
At the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championship in West Windsor, N.J., Rollock rowed in the No. 5 seat in the Varsity 8 Grand Final. In that Grand Final, the Engineers finished in sixth place at 7:39.733 as MIT was just under a second and a half in front of the crew from Wisconsin.
All-American athletes are selected from those athletes already named First-Team All-Region. Criteria considered for selection include: boat performance, nomination rank, coach's comments, individual achievements, and 2k erg score. One coxswain is named to each team.
Rollock is also a three-time member of the IRA All-Academic Team and a two-time honoree as a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) National Scholar-Athlete.
