STANFORD, Calif. – ROWING magazine named the Stanford Lightweight Rowing team the 2013 Women’s Collegiate Crew of the Year in its recent issue.
The Cardinal won the IRA National Championship for the fourth straight year in the spring of 2013 as they finished ahead of Radcliffe in the finals.
It was a season that also saw a win in the Lightweight Four at the WIRA Championships as well as a first place finish at the Pacific Coast Rowing Championships.
Despite missing six upperclassmen who were studying abroad this fall, the Cardinal got off to a good start to the 2013-14 season as they finished first at the Head of the Lagoon and fifth at the Head of the Charles.
The first race of the 2014 spring season for Stanford will be Saturday, March 29 against Saint Mary’s and Wisconsin in Redwood Shores, Calif.
