Priest named All-Academic

Sarah Priest of Chapel Hill is among three Tar Heel rowers who have earned spots on the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Crew, announced Tuesday. Priest is a rising University of North Carolina senior who is majoring in exercise and sport science.

She was joined on the 2014 All-Academic rowing team by UNC teammates Allie Davis and Maria Santoyo, who both graduated in May. Santoyo earned the recognition for the second year in a row.

All three Tar Heels also earned CRCA Scholar-Athlete honors this season. Davis was the coxswain for the varsity eight, UNCs top boat, and Priest and Santoyo both were part of the V8 lineup throughout the season.
