More Or Less A Total Ass-Kicking

CSD congratulates Yale Women's Crew on winning the Ivy League and Eastern Association titles and the Willing Trophy for most overall points at the Eastern Sprints this past weekend.

Yale's varsity eight of Christina Person, Berkley Adrio, Taylor Ritzel, Cara Dermody, Tess Gerrand, Maren McCrea, Caroline Nash, Alice Henly and Christine Glandorf edged out Radcliffe by 0.9 seconds and Princeton by 1.5.

Yale's second varsity four and novice eight both won gold medals, and all six Yale entries finished either first or second in their respective divisions.

Special congratulations to head coach (and West Side Rowing Club alum) Will Porter, who over the past ten years has taken Yale from perrenial Ivy League dormat to a two-time defending national champion, and to assistant coach Jamie Snider - one of CSD's favorite people.
