    PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Former University of Connecticut women’s rowing student-athlete Julia Roth was recognized as a 2013-14 American Athletic Conference Scholar-Athlete Sports Excellence Award Winner, as announced by the conference on Tuesday.  

    The Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Awards are given to one student-athlete in each American Athletic Conference-sponsored sport based on academic credentials, athletic accolades or performances and volunteer service to the community. Student-athletes who have attained junior academic standing and a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 are eligible.

    In total, 21 student-athletes throughout the league were recognized with 2013-14 Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Awards. The selections are made by the conference's Academic Affairs Committee

    Roth, a 2013 All-BIG EAST First Team member, helped propel UConn to a third-place finish at The American Championship in Mercer County, N.J. in May. She was named to the 2013 New England All-Region Second team by Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) following an impressive 2013 campaign.

    The Weston, Conn. native has been named to the conference's All-Academic team on three occasions and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Roth serves as a volunteer at the VA Medical Center in West Haven, Conn. and also volunteers at the Gillespie Homeless Shelter in Westport, Conn.
