All-star honored for academics at WWU [Rowing]

May 19, 2013

Christine Henie

Christine Henie of Chugiak was named to the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference academic all-star team for the third consecutive year.

The senior rower at Western Washington University is an Art major with a 3.62 grade point average.

She’s just as good on the water.

She plays the stroke position and has helped Western Washington maintain its stranglehold as the premier rowing team in the league.

Last year, Henie was named a second-team all-star as the Vikings placed second at nationals. She was part of the team’s national championship in 2011.
