Women's crew team competes in England, travels to Greece

The Holy Cross women's crew team finished its best season ever by traveling to England to compete at the Women's Henley Regatta this past June. The team ended its regular season, finishing second overall at the Champion International Regatta, garnering gold, silver and bronze medals in the varsity events. In addition, Patrick Diggins was voted Women's Coach of the Year by the New England Rowing Coaches. 

Following the Henley Regatta, the women traveled to Mykonos and Athens, Greece, to recuperate from their yearlong effort. Nicolas and Barbara Vernicos, the parents of Alexia '01, hosted the team at their home for an evening reception. Among the guests were Holy Cross students living in Greece, recently accepted students, members of the Athens academic community, and friends. The group was treated to a private tour at the Ancient Agora at the Acropolis in Athens by director of excavations, Professor John Camp of the American School of Classical Studies. Following its visit to the Agora, the team met privately with United States Ambassador to Greece, Nicholas Burns, at the U.S. Embassy. 

Participants included: Yazmin Esteve '01, Christine Henwood '99, Amanda Lawler '99, Patrick Diggins '86, Nicolas Vernicos P '01, Thomas Flynn '85, Rosemary Shea '87, Andrea Sicuso '01, Madeline Champou '02, Sarah Tyler '01, Erin Boyd '99, Kristen Diggins '90, Julie Murphy '99, Kate Moloney '00, Eileen Donnelly '01.
