UW Grad Kris Sanford Steps Down At Syracuse

| No Comments

Washington graduate Kris Sanford stepped down as the Syracuse women's rowing coach last week, and plans to pursue a career in nursing.

Sanford graduated from the UW in 1988 is widely considered one of the best rowers in the program's history, if not the Pac-10 Conference. She rowed in a boat that won four Pac-10 titles during her career on Montlake, and stroked the varsity eight to two National Collegiate Championships (which predated the NCAA's involvement) in 1987-88.

In 14 years at Syracuse, Sanford's teams achieved considerable success. In 2000 she stewarded the program when it achieved a milestone - an at-large bid for the varsity eight to the NCAA Championships. In 2002, the program earned its first team bid. Sanford has also coached three Olympic oarswomen at SU.
