CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Navy rowers Katie Quinn and Katherine Ashton both garnered All-Patriot League honors on Tuesday. Announced by the conference office, Quinn was selected to the All-Patriot League First Team, while Ashton earned a spot on the second team. The All-Patriot League teams were selected by the conference’s head coaches.
Both Quinn (Jr., Lighthouse Point, Fla.) and Ashton (Sr., Austin, Texas) were part of Navy’s varsity eight crew that took fourth place at this past weekend’s Patriot League Championships. Quinn has now been named to the All-Patriot League First Team in each of the last two years. Ashton was a first team honoree in 2013 before this year’s second team nod.
As a team, the Mids placed second behind Boston University at the Patriot League Championships. Navy finished with 45 points in the nine-team conference competition on the strength of victories in the second varsity eight and varsity four events.
The Mids’ varsity eight crew went 5-0 this spring and also claimed titles at the EAWRC Sprints, Murphy Cup Regatta and Occoquan Sprints.
