The Gary W. Kilpatrick Cup (Kilpatrick Cup)


From the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges:

The Gary W. Kilpatrick Cup was awarded annually to the crew that won the men’s freshmen lightweight eight (MFL8) in the Eastern Sprints. Beginning in 2015, the cup is awarded to the M3VL8 winner.

Coach Kilpatrick was a long time varsity lightweight coach at Princeton and coached the crews that won the Eastern Sprints MVL8 in 1981, 1983, 1985, and 1986. He is recognized by his peers as possibly the preeminent lightweight crew coach of the 1980s. The award was first presented in 2002 to Yale.

Please send any additions and/or corrections to the NavyLights Staff Historian.
