After helping the Seattle University women’s rowing V4+(A) boat race to a Grand Finals win at the Cascade Sprints on American Lake in Lakewood, Wash., Keara Collins (Seattle, Wash.) has been named Featured Student-Athlete of the Week on GoSeattleU.com.

“Keara is a hard worker,” said interim head coach Jennifer Park. “It shows through her performances on the water and in the classroom. She has excelled in her rowing this year, and continues to make improvements. She is a great athlete.”

Also racing in the V4+(A) boat for Seattle U were Jolie Kawasaki (Honolulu, Hawai'i), Hana Wilder (Portland, Ore.), Kaitlyn Hammond (Billings, Mont.), and Darian Borst (Milwaukee, Wisc.). They beat UCSD, Humboldt State (A), Western Washington (A), and Seattle Pacific in their first race on the day to move to the afternoon’s finals race. In the Women’s 4+ Grand Final, they earned the win, topping Western Washington (B), UCSD, Humboldt State (A), Western Washington (A), and Humboldt State (B).

In their first year as an NCAA Division I varsity program, Seattle U boats also earned wins in the Women’s 4+ Petite Finals and the W2V/N8 Grand Final in their first official race of the spring season.

Collins, a senior who was a member of the SU rowing team at the club level, also excels in the classroom with a 3.735 overall GPA as an environmental studies major.

The Seattle University athletics department names a Featured Student-Athlete each Tuesday based on performances both in the classroom and in competition.
