Fox and Doolittle Named Rowing All-Americas

July 31, 2002

Clemson, SC – The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) has announced the fourth annual All-America first and second teams. Clemson rowing’s Aimee Fox and Lucy Doolittle were named to the first and second teams, respectively.

This is the first All-America honor for Fox, a senior from Westbrook, ME. Earlier this year, she earned her second consecutive All-South Region honors. She was also a member of the 2002 All-ACC team, and was named to the 2001 All-South Region first team.

This is the second consecutive year that Doolittle, a native of Mauldin, SC, has earned All-America accolades. In 2001, Doolittle became Clemson rowing’s first All-American after being 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. 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 in 2000. She is also a four-time member of the ACC Academic Honor Roll.

The All-America award is designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of female rowers and coxswains during the current season. The criteria include meeting eligibility rules as defined by the athlete’s institution, participating in at least 75 percent of the season’s races in the varsity boat, and the student-athlete’s Head Coach must be a member in good standing of the CRCA.

The All-America first and second teams were selected by the regional chairpersons following the NCAA Championships from the rowers who had received All-Region first team honors. For each of the five regions, 12 rowers and, if nominated, a coxswain received first team honors and were eligible for national recognition.
