June 6, 2012
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -
Seven Oregon State men's rowers received recognition for their work in the classroom when the Pac-12 Conference's All-Academic teams were announced Wednesday by Commissioner Larry Scott.
Mike Hann (Honolulu, Hawai'i) and Etienne Mullin (Portland, Ore.) received first team honors while Morgan Boman (Newport Beach, Calif.), Chase Hooper (Pleasanton, Calif.), Chris Nofziger (Lebanon, Ore.), Daniel Werner (Tillamook, Ore.) and Wyatt Worrel (Austin, Texas) earned second team.
To be eligible for selection to the academic team, student-athletes must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor and have attended their institution for a year or more.
Hann, a senior with a 3.45 grade point average studying geography, was the coxswain in the Beavers' Junior Varsity 8 all season while Mullin, a junior with a 3.41 GPA in nuclear engineering, rowed in the 5-seat of Hann's JV8. It is the first all-academic award for each.
Worrel, a senior studying exercise and sport science, along with juniors Boman, a biology major, and Nofziger, a civil engineering student, as well as sophomores Hooper and Werner, both studying biology earned second team all-academic status. It is the second consecutive year Nofziger and Worrel have earned second team honors.
Nofziger, Werner and Worrel rowed in OSU's Varsity 8 all season while Hooper spent most of the year in the JV boat. Boman bounced between the Beavers' second eight-man crew and the four-man boats in 2012.
