Sloan Women Finish Season Undefeated

By Emily Craparo


The Sloan Crew women’s eight rowed their way to another first place finish in their final race of the season on Saturday, May 17.

The victory came after a season-long winning streak in races that included the World Graduate Rowing Championships, in which Sloan finished several boatlengths ahead of its nearest competitor.

The women finished their 1000m race in a time of 3:50.0 on May 17. Their season-long lineup consisted of coxswain Michelle L. Miilu G, Julie E. Zeskind G, Becky Hopkinson, Emily M. Craparo G, Danielle S. Smith ’02, Katherine S. Ryan G, Alicia J. Hardy G, Anita I. Horn and Katherine C. Martin G.

The Sloan men made vast late-season improvements in their rowing technique, but were unable to race on May 17 due to technical difficulties. They also competed in the World Graduate Rowing Championships but were eliminated in their heat by a boat from Cornell containing two U.S. national team rowers. Related stories:
