Eli Block ’12 Earns IRA All-Academic Honors as Member of Yale Crew

Eli Block ’12 was one of six Yale Bulldogs to receive IRA All-Academic Honors. According to the Intercollegiate Rowing Association, recognized athletes must have “completed one full year at his or her respective institution; maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.35 or higher; earn an institutional letter; [and] compete at the 2014 Intercollegiate Rowing Association Regatta.” 

Andy Card, the Head Coach of Yale Lightweight Crew, outlined the importance of academics to the culture of his team.  “This is what is great about Yale and Y150: you can hold yourself to high standards both individually in academics and in a team setting on the water,” said Card. “Not everyone makes the list, but those who do are special.”

Congratulations to Eli!
