BALTIMORE - Senior starboard rower Elizabeth Staub has been named a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Scholar-Athlete, the organization announced this week. This is the third-straight year Staub received the recognition from the CRCA.
"Liz is the perfect example of what can be achieved when student-athletes don't put limitations on themselves in either athletics or the classroom," said head coach Al Ramirez. "She has trained so hard to be in the top eight all four of her years at Loyola and she will be greatly missed next season."
To be eligible for the honor, the student-athlete must have rowed in 75 percent of their team's races this spring and have at least a 3.5 cumulative grade-point-average entering the Spring 2010 semester.
Earlier this spring, Staub was a nominee for Loyola's Ernest Lagna Award, which is given annually to a senior female who has achieved a strong academic standing, holds at least a 3.0 GPA, as well as significant athletic accomplishments.
At the 2010 MAAC Championships, the biochemistry major was a triple gold medalist for the Greyhounds who won their second straight conference title.
Staub will represent Loyola at the IRA National Championships in the Lightweight 4 June 3-5 on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J.
