In the flurry of activities leading up to June 9th’s commencement, we failed to note an extraordinary accomplishment that took place on the previous Saturday, June 2.
The Washington Husky crew went an unprecedented 5 for 5 in the Grand Finals of the 110th IRA Championships, winning their fourth national championship in six years – with CSE senior Tom Lehmann rowing 3-seat in the Varsity 8. Read about this amazing performance here.
The Husky crew represents UW’s longest tradition of excellence in any field, academic or athletic. UW CSE is proud of our students’ participation in this superb program. One of Tom’s predecessors, 2005 CSE alum Brett Newlin, will again row for the United States in the Olympics this summer.
