Bridget Schirripa Earns All-Patriot League Honors

WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross senior captain Bridget Schirripa (Lexington, Mass.) has earned second team All-Patriot League women's rowing honors. This is the first time that Schirripa has received this honor.

This season, Schirripa rowed on the varsity eight boat in eight regattas. She was also a member of the varsity four that placed fifth at the Patriot League Championship. Last year, she was a member of the second varsity eight that placed second at the Patriot League Championship, which was the best ever result for a Holy Cross second varsity eight boat at the Patriot League Championship. Schirripa earned Crusader of the Week accolades as a sophomore. She has been named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll three times and was also a three-year member of the Holy Cross Leadership Academy.
