WORCESTER, Mass. – The National Invitational Rowing Championships (NIRC) has announced the recipients of the regatta’s postseason awards. Bates College Head Coach, Peter Steenstra, was named NIRC Women’s Coach of the Year while Hobart College’s Paul Bugenhagen was recognized as NIRC Men’s Coach of the Year. In addition, 270 student-athletes were honored with NIRC All-Academic accolades.

For a student-athlete to be recognized to the NIRC All-Academic Team they must have completed one full-year at their institution (freshmen and first-year transfers are not eligible), maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.35 and be recognized as a varsity letter winner.  A full list of winners can be found below.

Steenstra earned the Women’s Coach of the Year nod after guiding Bates to gold medals in the varsity eight, second varsity eight and open four at the regatta. Additionally, their third varsity eight earned silver. Further, the first-place finishes by the varsity and second varsity eight marked the third straight gold medal performances by those boats at the championship. After earning the NCAA automatic-qualifier, the Bobcats went on to win their third straight NCAA Championship.

Bugenhagen was recognized as Men’s Coach of the Year by his peers after guiding the Hobart men to three gold medals at the regatta as his varsity eight, second varsity eight and third varsity eight each finished first. The Statesmen also punched their ticket to California for the 117th Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championship by way of automatic-qualifier after winning the varsity eight event.
