North graduate earns All-American honors

The honors keep piling up for Rebecca Brougher.

The Columbus North graduate and recent Indiana University grad has been named to the 2016 Pocock All-American second team by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association. She led the Hoosiers to a 15th-place finish in this year’s NCAA Championships.

To be nominated for CRCA postseason honors, a rower must meet all eligibility rules at her institution, must have rowed in at least 75 percent of the spring season races in the varsity boat, must be nominated by her institution and their head coach must me a CRCA member in good standing. Selections are based on strength of national finish with the school’s varsity eight boat, coach’s comments and 2K erg score.

Brougher also was named this year’s Big Ten Rowing Co-Athlete of the Year, CRCA first team All-Region and first-team All-Big Ten. She also won IU’s Spirit of Indiana Director’s Award, which is given to a student-athlete that best demonstrates the athletics department’s mantra of “24 sports, 1 team.”
