Senior Kelly Kennedy (Bloomington, Minn.) took home the Julia H. Greer award. The award, voted on by all members of the crew team, is given to the “oarswoman who has made the most valuable contribution to women's rowing at Dartmouth." Kennedy also took home the Season of ’79 award for service and dedication.
Classmate and 2012-13 captain senior Sarah Rutter (North Andover, Mass.) was awarded the Warren C. Nagle award.
