SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- Creighton women's crew member Christine Koehler has again earned West Coast Conference All-Academic Team honors, as announced by the league office on Thursday. Koehler joins San Diego's Hannah Patrick and Haley Adams from Saint Mary's as repeat members from the 2011 squad.
Koehler, a senior from Monument, Colo., holds a 3.94 cumulative grade point average in Nursing. Creighton placed five members on the honorable mention squad: Katie Dougherty (3.745 gpa), Kayla Heimerman (3.683 gpa), Hayley Pilcher (3.602 gpa), Laura Jo Washle (3.591 gpa) and Shawna Watanabe (3.862 gpa).
The Bluejays compete in the WCC Championships this weekend in Sacramento, Calif.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to her team.
