SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Getting set for the final race of the season, Santa Clara women's rowing had five players honored by the West Coast Conference for their work in the classroom. Megan Alferness was named to the All-Academic Team while Brenda Arellano, Sadhana Bharadwaj, Ana Maria Burgos-Solis, and Blair Mitchell were Honorable Mention.

"Megan is a hard worker and a leader on our team," said Santa Clara head coach John Wojtkiewicz. "Being an engineer as Santa Clara presents that much more of a challenge for her and we are all very proud. Having five players named to the team is a testament to the hard work that the team is putting in in the classroom. They are building a culture of success off the water as well as on."
