In addition, the conference announced Cowburn, Constanze Duell, Molly Frear, Susanne Grainger, Chandler Lally, Sarah McGovern and Catherine Multari have been recognized on the All-ACC Academic Rowing Team.
“Sarah has been an exemplary student-athlete for us the past two seasons and this honor is representative of the hard work she has done in and out of the water at UVa,” Virginia head coach Kevin Sauer said. “In addition, we are very proud of these young women who not only compete at a very high level, but do so well in the classroom.”
Cowburn, a native of Worcestershire, England, is the third consecutive Cavalier rower to be named the ACC Rowing Scholar-Athlete of the Year, joining Jennifer Cromwell (2010) and Sarah Borchelt (2011, 2012).
