Donation of the "Perseverance"

Purchased through the generosity of Alumni, Parents & Friends, with the naming gift from the Lubowe family in the spring of 2017. The family's daughter and current team coxswain, Carly, did the honors of christening the shell at the alumni regatta. The shell is a 2006 Pocock Midweight 8+ purchased from Evans Rowing Club.

Two other boats, the Class of 2007 and Grandma Liz, were also christened at the spring alumni regatta. To see information for the other two shells donated click these links: Class of 2007 and Grandma Liz
