UCONN Women Alumni Day

Celebrating Women Athletes

"Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you."
– Ruth Bader Ginsberg

This year at UConn there was an extra celebration noting women in sports. This is an extra-special moment for CLCR as we rely on our "big sisters" next door and they have made history once again. In the gallery to the right, we have some photos of UConn Women rowers back before it was a D1 varsity sport. In the mid-90s, it was elevated to a varsity sport. During the pandemic, the team was to be cut. Proudly they fought, and were invited back staking a claim in women sports for UConn and everywhere. Today, they celebrated their history, then and now, inviting Alumni from all years to partake in the Christening of their new boat the "IX". It think the name speaks for itself.
