Women's varsity 8 coxswain Donoho named to All-American team

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College graduate Susannah Donoho (Wilmington, Del./St. Andrew's School) was named to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Division III All-America Second Team on Wednesday.

Donoho was the coxswain for the Colby women's varsity 8 during her senior season. She had the same spot in the boat for the Colby men's varsity 8 in her junior year.

The Mules finished the season ranked 11th in the country in Division III after taking 11th place at the National Invitational Rowing Championships (NIRC). The varsity 8 also was 10th at the New England Championships. After starting the spring with a regatta victory in Georgia, the Mules had big dual wins against William Smith, UMass-Lowell, Coast Guard, and Bowdoin.

Donoho was named to the NIRC All-Stewards Team, the NIRC All-Academic Team, and the New England Small College Athletic Conference Spring All-Academic Team.

Strength of schedule, regular season record, end of the season results, nomination rank, comments from the head coach, and 2,000-meter erg score were some of the selection criteria for the All-America teams.
