Cory Bosworth serves as Harvard-Radcliffe's heavyweight assistant varsity coach and recruiting coordinator, a position she has held since the fall of 2002.
Harvard-Radcliffe has reached the NCAA Championships in 11 of Bosworth's previous 12 seasons, and in her first season, she helped coach the 2003 squad to win the national championship title.
Bosworth earned an undergraduate degree in English at the University of California, Berkeley, where she was a four-year member of the rowing team after beginning the program as a walk-on. She served as captain as a senior in 1999 when the Golden Bears took a bronze at the NCAA Championships. Bosworth was a Chancellor's Scholar at California and upon graduation was given the Anna Espenschade Award as the best female student-athlete at Cal.
Bosworth first came to Harvard-Radcliffe as a coaching intern and spent two fall seasons working with the novices, both heavy and light. In the spring, she coached the 2000 varsity four to a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championships and the 2001 four to an undefeated dual season and 10th-place NCAA showing.
In the fall of 2001, Bosworth returned to California, where she earned a master's in education in the Athletes and Academic Achievement Program. She worked as a volunteer coach with California's novice program over that year.
Bosworth returned to Harvard-Radcliffe to take the reins of recruiting efforts and assist in coaching the varsity squad. Her crews consistently finish at the top of both the Head of the Charles Regatta, setting a course record in the Club 8+ event in 2013, and Foot of the Charles Regatta, winning the Novice 8+ event in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. In the spring, her crews consistently finish in the grand finals of the Ivy League Championships, most recently winning the varsity 4+ in 2012, and go on to compete at the NCAA Championship regattas. She accompanied the team to the Women’s and Royal Henley Regattas in 2003, 2007, and 2012. In 2006 and in 2011, Bosworth was recognized by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association as the New England Regional Assistant Coach of the Year.
In addition to coaching with Harvard-Radcliffe, Bosworth has worked as a coach and counselor at a number of summer camps for high school rowers, including the Charles River Rowing Camp, for the past 12 years. She served as head coach of the USRowing U23 Sculling Development Camps in Boston in the summers of 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010, taking pre-elite level college athletes to medal at Club Nationals and the Canadian Henley Regatta.
