June 24, 2014
IRA All-Academic Team | @GW_MensRowing
A total of 253 student-athletes from 28 institutions were honored for maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 3.35 or higher. The honorees also must be a sophomore in academic standing and have competed at this year's IRA National Championships.
The honor marks the second straight season that the trio has been recognized by the IRA after the inaugural All-Academic team was announced last June.
Colander, a member of GW's Varsity 8 boat the past two seasons, recently graduated with a degree in business administration.
Krinker, a rising senior majoring in business administration, served as coxswain of the JV8 this past season. Freyberg, who rowed in the No. 6 seat of the JV8, is a rising junior majoring in international affairs.
The trio helped the Colonials to one of the most successful seasons in program history with victories at the George Washington Invitational and Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association (SIRA) Championships and combining for GW's best-ever performance at the IRA National Championships.
