Stanford duo brings home rowing title from Henley


The Stanford women's rowing team started its run through the Henley Women's Regatta on Friday with a victory in the pair in England.

Recent international relations graduate Courtney Carrabino and sophomore Reilly Hayes teamed up in the pair event to go up against the Norwich Rowing Club from Eastern England.

The Cardinal duo looked strong throughout the race and opened up a big lead on Norwich. Stanford crossed the finish line in 5:40 to win by 3.5 lengths.

The victory advances Carrabino and Hayes to the next round where they will face Nottingham/Queens Belfast from Ireland. The Irish squad had the fastest time on Friday with a 5.33 in its win.

The eight and the 4x will also get to race for the first time on Saturday. The eight drew a first round showdown with NCAA foe Brown. The quad will also face Brown in its opening contest.

At the World Cup II in Italy, Olympic gold medalist and Stanford grad Eleanor Logan and Felice Mueller, in the women's pair, advanced to Sunday's finals.

The men's four crew of USTC – Mnlo-Atherton grad Seth Weil , Henrik Rummel, Charlie Cole and Glenn Ochal race for medals against Australia, Germany, Canada, Great Britain and Italy.

The women's eight crew from USTC, which includes Stanford grad Grace Luczak, will race for medals and face Great Britain, Australia, China, New Zealand and Canada.

Field hockey

Stanford's Kelsey Harbin was selected as the Cardinal's representative for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award, which recognizes the nation's top collegiate female with outstanding achievements in academic endeavors, athletics excellence, community service and leadership.

Harbin, a human biology major, wrapped up her career on The Farm (2011-15) as one of the most accomplished field hockey players in school history. She is a three-time All-American -- a feat accomplished by only one other player in program history -- and co-captained Stanford to its first NCAA Tournament victory in school history in 2015.

Harbin had an outstanding senior season and was a Longstreth/NFHCA First Team All-American, All-Region first team selection, Norpac Player of the Year and NorPac All-Conference First Team. She was one of four finalists for the 2014-15 Honda Broderick Field Hockey Sports Award, given to the top player in the country. She also accumulated four NorPac Defensive Player of the Week honors, starting all 22 games during the season.

Harbin's success in her senior campaign was a continuation of the hard work and successes accumulated earlier in her collegiate career. She earned Longstreth/NFHCA First Team All-America in 2013 and a third-team All-American in 2014, and claimed first-team All-Region honors in both seasons.

Along with her on-field accomplishments, Harbin excelled in the classroom and in the community. She is a two-time NFHCA All-Academic honoree and volunteered with multiple community service groups.
