Bartz earns ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors
AUSTIN, Texas -- The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) have named Texas senior rower Danielle Bartz to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District 6 women’s at-large team. Bartz’ selection to the second team marks the first time a Texas rower has been honored by CoSIDA since 2004.
Bartz helped the Texas Rowing team to a stellar season in 2008, knocking off nationally ranked Wisconsin and beating 2007 NCAA qualifier Central Florida. The Longhorns concluded their season with a fifth-place finish in the south region and a 12th-place finish overall at the 2008 Aramark South/Central Region sprints.
The senior government and Spanish honors major graduated with a 3.7 GPA and was a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association National Scholar-Athlete. In April 2008, she was selected from the entire student body by the Texas Exes Association as its Edward S. Guleke Student Excellence Award recipient. The award honors top academics, community service and leadership.
Bartz also received the Rotary National Scholarship in 2007, valued at $27,000 for future study in a Spanish-speaking country. In addition to her double major, Bartz finished her degree with a minor in French and is fluent in three languages.
