Womens crew rowed to three gold medals at the Henley Regatta at Henley-on-Thames, England, in June. The varsity squad, competing in open eights, defeated the University of London by four lengths in the semifinals before thrashing Texas by sixteen seconds in the finals. The second varsity eight struck gold by winning six races over three days, culminating with a thirty-two-and-one-half-length victory over City of Oxford in the final. An alumni four team also captured a gold medal, with a crew consisting of Maria Raymond 02 at stroke, Jessica Lanning 02 in the number-three seat, Jill Filipek 03 at two, Rosie Branson-Gill 03 in bow, and Misha Joukowsky 87 at coxswain. The varsitys gold-medal triumph earned it an automatic berth in the Remenham Cup event at the Royal Henley Regatta in early July, where the women defeated University of London-Tideway Scullers in the quarterfinals before being overpowered by the Australian national team in the semifinals. Holly Robertson 05 was chosen for the Canadian junior national womens basketball team. Former mens soccer star Cory Gibbs 02 played his first game for the U.S. national team in June.
