Success for Exonians in the 2015 Boat Races
Oxford celebrated a double triumph over Cambridge at this year’s Boat Races, with comfortable victories for both the men’s and women’s crews.
For the first time in its 88-year history, the women’s race took place on the tideway in London. Lauren Kedar (2013, Earth Sciences) was among the women who competed in this historic race, rowing at four for Oxford. The dark blues enjoyed a comfortable victory, beating Cambridge by six and a half lengths.
The men’s boat also cruised to victory, winning by six lengths. Rowing in the stroke seat was Constantine Louloudis (Trinity), son of Exonian Leonard Louloudis (1974, Modern History). It was Constantine’s fourth win for Oxford’s Blue Boat, and his first as president of the University’s boat club.
Exeter was also represented by Morgan Gerlak (2014, Economic and Social History), who rowed to victory in the men’s reserve boat, and by Jowita Mieszkowska (2013, Jurisprudence), who was one of the spare pair in the women’s lightweight Blue Boat.
We would like to congratulate both teams for their impressive victories on the Thames this weekend.
