IOWA CITY, Iowa — A current member of the University of Iowa rowing team and two alums have represented the Hawkeyes on a national stage over the summer. Annemarie Bernhard (2010-12) will compete at the Under-23 World Championships for the Netherlands, while 2013 graduate Katy Kroll and rising sophomore Lauren Subler attended US Rowing National Team camps.

Bernhard, a Voorburg, Netherlands native, will compete in the women’s 8+ and women’s 4- boats at the 2013 Under-23 World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria, July 24-28. The competition will take place at the Linz-Ottensheim regatta course, home of the 1998 World Rowing Junior Championship, 2007 World Rowing Cup, 2008 World Rowing Junior Championship and non-Olympic Senior Championship and the National Cup in 1990 and 2001. While at Iowa, Bernhard earned first team All-Big Ten recognition in 2012. She is currently attending medical school in the Netherlands.

Kroll, a 2012 second team All-Big Ten selection, attended the US Under-23 Selection Camp during the month of June. The purpose of the camp was to select athletes to compete on the women’s 8+ and women’s 4+ boats at the 2013 World Rowing Under 23 Championships, as well as the women’s pair, four and double boats that would compete at the Under 23 Trials in West Windsor, N.J.

Subler, a novice in the 2012-13 year, was one of only 18 student-athletes from around the country to be invited to the US Rowing National Team Freshmen Camp this summer held at the University of Washington, June 10-16, in Seattle, Wash. The camp was designed for athletes with elite level potential who have one or two years of college rowing experience. During her freshman campaign, Subler raced in the Hawkeye Varsity 1V8 and 2V8.
