ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – The St. Mary’s College of Maryland rowing team has 11 rowers being honored with Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference All-Conference honors.

Lindgren-Streicher says, “With all the ups and downs of hybrid learning, the team stayed dedicated to their academic achievement, which shows in the number student-athletes receiving Academic All-Conference honors this spring. We also appreciate the support and dedication of all of their professors this past year, who were equally committed to making sure they were set up for success.”
