Mount Si High School graduate Katie Woolsey helped make history rowing for Western Washington University, which won an unprecedented fifth consecutive NCAA Division II title.
Woolsely, a freshman, rowed on WWU’s women’s varsity eight, which defended its national title (6:52.60) on the Cooper River Park in Cherry Hill, N.J., Sunday, May 31. Half of the boat is freshmen.
Woolsey and teammates beat Mercyhurst College (6:57.22), Seattle Pacific University (7:00.22) and Philadelphia University (7:05.70), ending a perfect, 10-0 season.
Woolsey was also a track and soccer standout during her career at Mount Si.
