S-E Grad Wagner Helps William Smith Win Rowing Gold
Published: May 7th, 2013

GENEVA – Karly Wagner (Sherburne-Earlville, 2012), a first-year member of the William Smith Herons’ crew team, helped her team win gold in the Women’s Novice 8 division at the New York State Collegiate Rowing Championship last week.

After an easy victory Saturday, Sunday’s final was a nail-biter with just 0.66 seconds separating the top three finishers. Ithaca led for most of the race, but held just a slim advantage as the teams began their final sprint. RIT and William Smith poured it on down the stretch. The Bombers were able to hold off the Tigers, with just 0.18 seconds to spare, however, the Herons were able push their bow ahead of Ithaca.
