Lucy Doolittle Honored As Clemson’s First All-America Rower

June 13, 2001

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson rower Lucy Doolittle was named to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Division I All-America First Team announced today.

“It is exciting for Lucy Doolittle to be Clemson’s first All-American in rowing,” said Head Coach Susie Lueck. “She is once again making history. I am pleased that her hard work and dedication have been recognized nationally.”

Doolittle, a junior from Mauldin, SC, is Clemson’s first rowing All-American. The honored student-athletes were chosen based on the following criteria: Varsity Eight Record (requiring at least 75% participation in varsity eight races), strength of schedule, nomination rank (the rank order of nominees as chosen by the nominating coach), coaches recommendation, 2K ergometer score, and a member of the all-region first team.

Earlier this season, Doolittle was selected to the 2001 South Region First Team as well as the All-ACC team. She rowed in Clemson’s varsity eight boat, which was selected as the ACC Crew of the Year after the Tigers finished second at the conference Championships. She is also a three-time member of the ACC Academic Honor Roll.

Doolittle was a second-team all-region selection in 2000, Clemson rowing’s first all-region honoree. She also received Clemson’s Most Improved Varsity Rower Award last year.

Clemson completed the year ranked 21st as a team after earning its first Top 20 ranking earlier this season.
