CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Radcliffe heavyweight crew assistant coach Cory Bosworth has been named New England Assistant Coach of the Year, the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association has announced.
Bosworth, who coaches the Radcliffe varsity fours, completed her ninth season with the Black and White this spring. The varsity four A showed great improvement during the season, won its event at the Beanpot and reached the Eastern Association of Women’s Rowing Colleges Sprints grand final. The boat finished the season by placing second in the third-level final, good for 14th place nationally, at the NCAA Championships.
“Cory has been an outstanding recruiter, teacher, coach and mentor throughout her time here at Radcliffe,” head coach Liz O’Leary said. “Her remarkably positive energy has helped each athlete both on and off the water. Her understanding and wisdom give us all perspective and confidence that become the foundation for training and competition.”
In addition to working with the current Radcliffe squad, Bosworth plays key roles in recruiting future student-athletes and working with alumnae. The freshmen she helped bring to Cambridge for this season made an impact in all of the Black and White’s boats, helping the team reach the NCAA Championships, where Radcliffe finished 14th as a team.
