PRINCETON, N.J. Four Golden Bears – Agatha Nowinski, Kendall Chase, Lindsay Meltz and Katarina Floyd – were named to the United States Under 23 National Team for the 2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships, the United States Rowing Association announced on Friday.

There is now a total of nine Golden Bears representing four nations at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships later this month. 

Nowinski completed her senior season with the Golden Bears this past spring. Meltz will be a senior, Chase will be a junior and Floyd is entering her freshman season for Cal in 2015.

The World Rowing Under 23 Championships will take place in Varese, Italy from July 23-27. The five-day competition will feature U.S. crews in 20 events including the women’s single sculls, lightweight women’s single sculls, women’s double sculls, lightweight women’s double sculls, women’s quadruple sculls, lightweight women’s quadruple sculls, women’s pair, women’s four, and women’s eight.

Nowinski has been named to the seven seat in the U.S. Under 23 Women’s Eight (W8+) and the bow seat in the Women’s Pair (W2-). A two-time All-American, Nowinski stroked Cal’s varsity eight the past two seasons.

Chase has been named to the four seat in the U.S. Under 23 Women’s Eight (W8+) and was selected to the bow seat in the Women’s Four (W4-). She rowed the seven-seat in Cal’s varsity eight that placed third at the NCAA Championships in June.

Meltz, who served as the coxswain for the Golden Bears varsity eight that finished third in the NCAA Championships in June, was selected as the coxswain for the U.S. Under 23 Women’s Eight.

Floyd, who won the women’s lightweight singles, was selected to compete for the United States Under 23 National Team in the Lightweight Women’s Single Sculls (LW1x).

David O’Neill, who served as Cal’s head coach for 16 successful seasons before resigning his position in June, will coach the United States Under 23 Women’s Eight, Women’s Four and Women’s Pair.

Nowinski, Chase and Meltz helped guide Cal’s varsity eight to a third-place finish at the NCAA Championships in 2014, leading the Bears to a second-place team finish at the NCAAs. It was the 12th top-four finish at the NCAA Championships for O’Neill in his 16 years at the helm of the California program.

Several current Golden Bears are competing for a spot on their nation’s Under 23 National Team for the World Rowing Under 23 Championships.

Two members of Cal's varsity eight this past season, senior Ingvild Roenningen and sophomore Inger Kavlie, have been selected to represent Norway at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships. Roenningen will compete in the W1x, and Kavlie will row in the W2x. 

For Germany, Charlotte Siering (rowed for Cal in the 2V8+ in 2014) and Dorothee Beckendorff (stroke for 2014 NCAA Champion V4+) will row together in the W2-.

Junior Jacinta Admunds, who served in the second varsity at Cal this past season, will row in the W8+ for Australia
