June 11, 2002

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson rower Emily Kuivila was named a 2002 Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association National Scholar-Athlete, the Tigers third such honoree. In 2001, Katherine Sloan and Lauren Henne became the first Tigers to ever receive the academic award.

The Tigers’ varsity eight coxswain, Kuivila has a 3.70 GPA in Sports Management. The junior from Dublin, OH, is Clemson rowing’s third CRCA National Scholar-Athlete, and she is a member of the Clemson and the Atlantic Coast Conference Honor Rolls. Kuivila coxed the second varsity eight in 2000 and 2001, including the 2001 South Region second varsity eight champion. She garners this academic honor to go along with her 2002 All-South Region award.

The National Scholar-Athlete award is designed to recognize the outstanding academic accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains during the current season. The criteria include meeting eligibility rules as defined by her institution, participating in their second, third or fourth year of eligibility, participating in at least 75% of the season’s races in the varsity boat, the student-athlete’s head coach must be a member in good standing in the CRCA and the student-athlete must have a 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA through the fall semester of the current season.

For the 2002 season, 93 Division I student-athletes received the National Scholar-Athlete Award, while 67 Division II and III student-athletes received the award.
