Capistran named a Rowing All-American

After helping Rhode Island earn its first bid to the NCAA Rowing Championship, sophomore Kate Capistran was one of 42 rowers nationally to earn a spot on the 2013 Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Pocock All-American squad.

Capistran—who rowed in the second seat on Rhode Island’s Varsity 8+ boat—earned Second-Team All-American honors and was one of 13 rowers named to the CRCA Division I New England All-Region First Team.

Her teammates—junior Chelsea Paulin and sophomore Hannah Milam—were named to the 2013 Atlantic 10 Rowing All-Academic Team. Paulin (Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey) was the cox for the Second Varsity 8 that helped Rhode Island win its second straight A-10 title this spring. She is a wildlife and conservation biology major with a cumulative 3.85 grade-point average. Milam (Woolwich, Maine) rowed the bow seat for the 2013 A-10 champion Varsity 4+ boat. The victory by the Varsity 4+ boat clinched the 2013 A-10 team title for Rhode Island, as well as a spot in the NCAA Championship.
