EDISON, N.J. - Loyola University Maryland women's crew senior Catriona Miller has been named Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Student-Athlete of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.
Miller has helped the women's varsity four to a great start to the season, including two first-place finishes and a second-place finish in their first three races. Miller was a part of the varsity four-boat that won the Jesuit Invitational on the Cooper River in Cherry Hill, N.J., finishing the course in 8:33.0 and beating out the field by more than 16 seconds.
The senior also helped the crew take home a gold medal as the stroke at the Occoquan Sprints, as the boat beat out teams from Navy, Old Dominion, West Virginia and North Carolina with a time of 7:43.4. Miller coxed the second-place boat the Murphy Cup Regatta that had the second-fastest qualifying time of the 20-boat field.
Out of the water, Miller has a 3.83 GPA while majoring in history.
The Greyhounds next take part in the Knecht Cup on April 14-15 in Cherry Hill, N.J.
