Kelly McCarthy, Marissa Reichel Tabbed Lightweight All-Americans

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Seniors Kelly McCarthy and Marissa Reichel of the Radcliffe lightweight crew have been named to the 2012 Pocock Lightweight All-America team, the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association has announced.

McCarthy, a Los Gatos, Calif., native, and Reichel, from Weston, Mass., are among the eight rowers selected to the team, along with one coxswain. The duo helped the Radcliffe varsity eight place third at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships to earn its first IRA medal since 2006. McCarthy and Reichel also aided in the Black and White’s bronze-medal finish at Eastern Sprints and 3-0 record in dual competition this season.

Nominated student-athletes are evaluated on the strength of their team's national finish and coaches’ recommendations. Nominees must be eligible student-athletes who have competed in their teams' varsity boat in 75 percent of races this season.
