Portions courtesy of the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association

PRINCETON, N.J. -- A total of 28 Ivy League women's rowers earned spots on the 2012 Division I All-Region teams as announced by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA).

The League received 13 selections in the Mid-Atlantic region, including nine first-team nods, and 15 selections in the New England Region, including nine first-team recognitions.

Nominated student-athletes were evaluated on the strength of their team's regional finish, coaches recommendations and 2,000-meter erg score. Nominees must be eligible student-athletes who have competed in their teams' varsity boat in 75 percent of races this season.

These athletes are eligible for All-America honors to be announced following the 2012 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships, which are May 25-27 on Lake Mercer in West Windor, N.J.
