For the second-straight year, seniors Linzi Hauldren and Grace Riekenberg were honored for their achievements in the classroom. Hauldren carried a 3.616 grade-point average in elementary education and Riekenberg an impressive 3.752 GPA in English literature. Both were named CRCA National Scholar Athletes in 2004.
Junior Stephanie Black and sophomore Amy Wagner were also honored on the scholar athlete list. Black compiled a 3.685 GPA in psychology and Wagner a 3.607 GPA in kinesiology. All four rowers earned varsity letters this past season, having competed in K-State’s First Varsity Eight boat.
