Four Named to IRA All-Academic Team

CENTERVILLE, Mass.—Four members of the Jacksonville men’s rowing team were named to the Intercollegiate Rowing Association’s 2013 All-Academic Team by the Eastern College Athletic Conference. 

Scott Del Vecchio, Joshua Holt, Stephen Marra, and Preston Weinard received the prestigious national honor for the Dolphins.  JU was one of just 25 schools across the country to have a representative on the team.  To qualify, a student-athlete must maintain a cumulative grade point average of a 3.35 or better, be at least a sophomore at their respective institution, and be a varsity letter winner.

Del Vecchio and Weinard were members of the JU Varsity 4 that competed and won a final at the 2013 IRA National Championship.  They were just the fourth boat in program history to qualify and compete at the event.
