CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State rower Anna Taylor has been named to the 2014 Pocock All-America Second Team as announced by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) on Monday.

These awards recognize the outstanding performances of rowers and coxswains on the national level in women's collegiate rowing.

Taylor (Taupo, New Zealand/St. Peter's School) wrapped up her senior campaign with the Beavers this season, rowing in the Varsity 8 for Oregon State in one of the strongest V8 boats that head coach Emily Ford has had at OSU. Rowing in the 6-seat for the majority of the season, Taylor helped power the Beavers to victories over Duke, Gonzaga, San Diego and No. 14 Washington State.
