Rowing Trio Earns CRCA All-America Honors Following Ivy Championship Season
The trio was part of the Princeton varsity eight that won the program's third Ivy League title in the last four seasons. The Tigers went 8-2 during the season, but it was edged out of the NCAA grand final by less than a quarter of a second during the championship semifinals. Undaunted, the Tigers knocked off fourth-ranked Virginia to win the petite final and help Princeton to a sixth-place team finish.
Both Gould and Reelick earned First-Team All-America honors. Gould, who was also a member of the 2013 Ivy champion varsity eight, rowed the majority of the season in the 2-seat. Reelick, who spent most of the season in the stroke seat, was part of both the 2013 Ivy League champion and the 2011 Ivy League and NCAA champion varsity eight.
Richardson, a member of the 2V last season, earned Second-Team All-America honors. She sat in the bow from the second week of the season through the NCAA Championships, and she will be one of four members of the V8 who will return for the 2015 season.
That trio also earned First-Team All-New England Region honors. The senior duo of Annie Prasad and Susannah Shipton earned Second-Team honors after helping Princeton to an Ivy title. Prasad served as coxswain for each of the last two Ivy championship boats, while Shipton — a co-captain this season — rowed in the 3-seat.
