• All-time Remington Scholars List
MADISON, Wis. -- Men’s rower Charles Clapp IV and women’s distance runner Rebecca Stoebe were named the 2013-14 Remington Scholars, the University of Wisconsin Athletic Board announced today.
The Remington Scholarships are presented to the male and female student-athletes who complete their eligibility with the highest cumulative grade point averages and will graduate this season. Named in honor of former UW professor Frank Remington, who was a faculty athletics representative to the NCAA, Big Ten and WCHA, recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship providing they enter a post-graduate program within one year of graduation.
Clapp, a Hingham, Massachusetts, native, was a double major in finance, investment and banking as well as risk management and insurance.
Clapp stroked the varsity lightweight four to a bronze medal at the 2014 Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championships in West Windsor, New Jersey, helping extend UW’s streak to 10 consecutive national championships with at least one boat earning a medal.
In the classroom, he is a 2014 IRA All-Academic, 2014 Academic All-Big Ten selection, and 2013 and 2014 Big Ten Distinguished Scholar. He was also the team’s 2012 Athletic Board Scholar recognizing him as the student-athlete with the highest grade point average in men’s rowing.
Last season, Clapp took third place with the third varsity eight at the 2013 Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges Conference Championships.
Stoebe, who majored in Spanish and biomedical engineering, hails from Kenosha, Wis. She proved to be an invaluable asset to the distance crew during her four years with the Badgers. On the track, she placed 10th or higher in each of the five races she competed in during the 2012 season, including a win in the 3000 meters at the Wisconsin NCAA Qualifier on March 3. One of her best races for UW came on Jan. 12, 2013 at the Panther Open, when she ran a personal best 10:27.55 in the 3000 meters.
On the cross country course, the Kenosha, Wisconsin, native lettered four years. Her best showing came at the 2012 Warhawk Invitational, where she finished third with a time of 22:49 in the 6,000-meter race. She also placed fifth that season at the Oshkosh Open, finishing the 6K course in 22:48.8.
Stoebe was honored as a 2014 Big Ten Distinguished Scholar with a grade point average of 3.7 or higher. She also earned Academic All-Big Ten honors for cross country and track and field in 2013-14.
