Smiley named to CRCA All-Region team

By The Mercury

The Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association announced its all-region awards and teams this week, and Kansas State’s Traci Smiley was recognized for the second year in a row.

Smiley was named to the CRCA Central All-Region Second Team.

Last season, Smiley was honored with the same award by the coaches association, and this year’s award marks the sixth time in K-State history a rower has been named to the CRCA All-Region Team.

Smiley helped K-State’s 1st Varsity 8 to a sixth-place finish at the Conference USA Rowing Championship and third at this year’s Big 12 Championship.

Smiley is a three-time letterwinner for the Wildcats and has garnered multiple academic awards during her career as well. She also earned All-Conference USA honors for the second time this season for her efforts at the conference championship regatta.

Smiley is the first Wildcat to receive All-Central Region honors twice.
