Hannah Heideveld proving to be key piece for Rutgers women’s rowing

Over the last few weeks, Hannah Heideveld has given Rutgers plenty of reasons to celebrate. On Sunday, the Netherlands native was named to the Pocock All-America Team for the 2023 season. This season, she was also named an All-American for the second time in her collegiate career.

The talented junior is part of the Rutgers Varsity 8, which placed 14th in the nation at the 2023 NCAA Championships. They also finished second in the C final on the final day of the national regatta. Due to her performance, Heideveld earned her second consecutive All-Big Ten First Team honor this spring.

Additionally, Heideveld is the twelfth Rutgers athlete to earn the Pocock All-America honor under head coach Justin Price. Eleven of those have come in the past four years. However, for Heideveld, her success does not stop there.

She was also awarded the 2023 Competitive Excellence Award at the Rutgers Chancellor-Provost’s Student Leadership Awards Gala. Her focus now shifts to the global stage as Heideveld will represent Team USA at the U23 World Rowing Championships from July 19-23.
