    Lawrenceville lost its races against Connecticut’s Kent School earlier that morning, but you’d never know it from the demeanor of the boys’ and girls’ crews. Having changed into blazers and ties for the boys and classic black dresses for the girls, the Big Red rowers clearly regarded this as a formal and festive occasion. Indeed, Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16, Athletic Director Tripp Welborne, School Chaplain Sue Anne Steffey Morrow H’12, and two former Olympic gold medalists were on hand to help dedicate two new crew shells – Vespoli eights – generously funded by two anonymous Lawrenceville donors.
