More postseason awards for Hamilton rowers
The Hamilton College men's and women's rowing teams recently received athletic and academic honors from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).
2015 ECAC NIRC All-Stars | 2015 NIRC Stewards All-Academic Team
Caroline Walton '15 (Skaneateles, N.Y./Skaneateles HS) and Parker Lewis '16 (Lawrenceville, N.J./The Hun School of Princeton) were selected for the 2015 Men's and Women's All-ECAC National Invitational Rowing Championship (NIRC) teams. A total of 39 student-athletes were chosen from 24 institutions. Coaches from each member institution selected a deserving member from their respective crews to be honored.
Walton rowed in the 6-seat for Hamilton's nationally ranked No. 3 women's varsity 8. The ECAC all-star team honor is the third of her career. Walton and the Continentals earned the bronze medal in the varsity 8 grand final at the NCAA Division III Women’s Rowing Championships on May 30. Hamilton was making its first appearance at nationals and took fourth place in the team standings.
Lewis is the stroke for the men's varsity 8. He was placed on the NESCAC all-conference team earlier this spring.
Lewis was one of 20 Continentals who earned a spot on the 2015 NIRC Stewards All-Academic Team. To receive all-academic honors, a student-athlete must have reached sophomore academic standing and be a varsity letter winner with a cumulative grade point average of 3.35 or better.
