Hoos With Trophies
Congratulations to Heidi Long who became the first female to sweep the events at the prestigious Henley Royal Regatta, a race in which boats head-to-head down the River Thames for over 2000-meters. This is a unique layout compared to the usual six-lane across 2,000-meter race seen at World Rowing regattas including the Olympics. Check out this article that contextualizes the achievement as well as gives a brief bio of the alumna.
