June 9, 2017

The University of Iowa women's rowing staff was named Region 4 Staff of the Year, announced the College Rowing Coaches Association.

The Regional Staff of the Year Award recognizes a staff that had outstanding success during the current season, demonstrated great team improvement from the prior season, fulfilled the team's potential, and demonstrated a high level of professionalism and integrity as a coach.

This year, the coaching staff led the Hawkeyes to their second NCAA Championship berth in program history, ending a 16-year drought dating back to 2001. The team broke its national poll record four times throughout the season, peaking at No. 11 in the country in the April 25 CRCA/USRowing Poll. Iowa also broke the team point record at the Big Ten Championships on May 14, scoring 116 points to tie for fourth place.
