Stonington Rower Wins At Henley

Although, I know it is very late to write about the Henley Women’s Regatta of 2010 (held 18-20 June 2010), the local newspaper The Day, which covers the south-east corner of Connecticut, had a very nice article today about a local rower, Candice Webb of Stonington. A couple of years back, being a freshman at Stonington High School she did not know a lot about rowing, but now a senior at Drexel University, she and her crew mates in the eight took a prestigious cup at the Henley Women’s. In The Day Alex Teixeira writes

“Drexel’s varsity eight won the Elite 8 championship and the Sports Council Cup on June 20 at the prestigious Henley Women’s Regatta on England’s Thames River. The Dragons were recently honored for that achievement in a celebration attended by Drexel president John Fry and U.S. congressman Patrick Kennedy. Drexel became just one of four American schools to win the regatta, joining Yale, Brown and Radcliffe.”
