Newly Minted Alumna Featured in Case Magazine

May 2006: Graduating senior, Katherine Allen, featured prominently in the Spring 2006 Case Magazine section featuring 2006 graduates. She's receiving her B.S. in geological sciences and plans to head to England and Cambridge for a master's. She cites as her favorite place off campus as being rowing on the Cuyahoga! I think we can all relate to the peaceful early morning rows with the fog, city lights and bridges reminding us how great a sport this is.

Case Women Finish Season Strong at Dad Vails

May 12-13, 2006: Case sent a Varsity Openweight Women's 4+ to this year's Dad Vail Regatta. After winning their heat on Friday by 4 seconds, they progressed to the semi-final on Saturday. In their semi this boat full of seniors were sitting in 5th by the 1250m mark. The crew dug deep and rowed through both Barry and Buffalo to finish 3rd and just missed the finals by 5 seconds. The winner of their semi, Penn State, went on to win in the final. This was the final race for these ladies in Case gear, but we wish them luck and appreciate the fantastic precedent for the juniors and sophomores next year.


This year's line up was:
Lauren Boucher '09 - cox
Carolyn Sayre '06 - stroke
Jenna Copeland '06 - 3
Katherine Allen '06 - 2
Erin Brandt '06 - bow

Tim Aligning Boats

The weather turned out to be beautiful allowing people to enjoy the racing and reconnect after years of being away from the team. Alumni showed their support by donating over $4,000 to SARA for the purchase of some Nielsen-Kellerman rowing electronics and a new regatta tent. The team directly raised nearly $500 on the day from a raffle for naming rights to an oar and for some Case Crew gear. The festivities continued on into the evening at the Great Lakes Brewery.

Photos and commentary from the day can be found HERE.

Case Crew Successful at UAA Championships!

April 2, 2006: Case Crew took on its UAA rivals at the annual University Rowing Association Championship Regatta held at Lake Arthur just north of Pittsburgh. Crews from Wash U, U Rochester, Carnegie-Mellon, Brandeis, NYU, and U Chicago were in attendance.

Case Crew's women could not even field boats for last year's race due to attrition and injury. They came storming back this year with a silver medals in the women's open & novice fours. They also took bronze in the open eight, which took them to fourth overall in the team standings. After a strong showing last year, the men's team is currently re-building this year. The men bested Brandeis in the men's open four in the first year that Brandeis attended the regatta.

Wash U took home both point trophies for men & women. The silver Case Alumni Cup for men's team points was generously donated by SARA three years ago in support of the race. Full results can be found HERE.

The race is meant to be a spring tune up, and the format, distance, and points are decided each year between the head coaches of each program. This year's racing awarded one point to each winning crew, and races were two abreast over 1500m.

Case walked away with the overall cup (now sponsored by the Cleveland Rowing Foundation) by winning 5 out of ten races. The Case women's team was perfect winning 4 out of 4 races. The Case men's squad picked up a win in the varsity 8+. Full results can be found HERE.
