CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Washington College rising senior Jackie Creitz (Schnecksville, Pa./Parkland) has been named to the College Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Pocock All-America first team. Creitz is the fifth Shorewoman in the team's history to earn All-America first-team honors.
Creitz rowed in the six seat of the Shorewomen's first varsity eight, which finished first at the Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference (MARC) Championships, propelling the team to its fourth consecutive MARC Championship and fourth consecutive NCAA Division III Championship appearance. The first varsity eight won its petite final at the NCAA Division III Championships, boosting the team to a fifth-place finish overall.
Creitz, who also competes on the Washington College women's swim team, was named All-MARC Varsity in April and is a two-time CRCA National Scholar-Athlete and two-time Academic All-MARC selection. She joins Anna Germain, Sara Beegle, Caroline Perry, and Mickey Fili as the only first-team All-Americans in the Shorewomen's history. Beegle was twice named to the first team, while Fili received the honor three years in a row. She was also the only MARC rower named to this year's first team; Teresa Chappell of Franklin & Marshall and Isabella Hildenbrandt of Marietta were named to the second team.
