Patrick Lapage enters his fourth season with the Harvard men's heavyweight crew team in 2016-17. Lapage helps in all aspects of the program, focusing on the third and fourth varsity eight boats.
In 2016, the third varsity eight took home a silver medal, posting a top-three finish for the second-straight year at the IRA National Championships. The 3V also earned a second-place finish at the Eastern Sprints.
A 2012 Harvard graduate, Lapage joined the heavyweight staff for the 2013-14 season. Lapage, a first team All-Ivy selection in 2010 and 2011, helped the Crimson varsity eight to a bronze medal at the 2012 IRA National Championships, locking up Harvard's second-straight top-three national finish.
With Lapage in the stroke seat, Harvard completed a perfect dual season for the varsity eight, including the squad's fifth-straight sweep of Yale. At EARC Sprints, the Crimson V8 took second by less than a half second and contributed to the Rowe Cup win.
A native of Shrewsbury, England, Lapage has also seen international success. Lapage won a bronze medal racing with Great Britain's eight at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Amsterdam and also took home bronze with the men's coxed four at the 2010 World Rowing U23 Championships in Brest, Belarus.
