The GTCA would like to congratulate Head Coach Rob Canavan for becoming the Regional Coach of the Year for the South. ACRA consists of six regions of the United States (ours being the South) and this will be the second year for these awards. Each region's constituency elects the winners from among their peers. Coach Rob will be recognized at the ACRA national championship on May 23rd in Oak Ridge, TN and will also be considered for ACRA Coach of the Year honors after the regatta concludes. Congratulations Rob!

In addition, the American Collegiate Rowing Association has also announced the second annual All-Region teams. Coaches of each team could submit up to five candidates from their teams, and selections were made by the elected regional representative. The student-athlete must row in the team’s top boat. Other criteria used were: 2,000 meter erg scores, career racing results, accomplishments within the team, and the coaches recommendation. Again, these honorees will be recognized at the ACRA national championship on May 23rd in Oak Ridge, TN. They will also be considered for ACRA All-American honors after the regatta concludes.

Georgia Tech Crew had FOUR rowers selected to be on the regional team:
Amie Martel
Thomas Evans
Ben Loeffler
Drew Mason

Congratulations and good luck this weekend racing at ACRA!
