Sami Jurofsky: Westport’s Newest NCAA Champ

Yesterday, “06880” proudly trumpeted Cameron Wilson’s NCAA golf championship.

Today we honor Sami Jurofsky. In Indianapolis on Sunday the 2011 Staples grad helped Ohio State win the NCAA Division I women’s rowing title. This is the 2nd straight national crown for the Buckeyes.

It was a busy day. Sami also coxed the 3rd-seeded 2nd varsity eights to a 1st-place victory.

Victory was sweeter because her sister Carleigh Jade — a 2008 Staples grad — flew in to surprise Sami.

A junior at OSU, she started as a coxswain at the Saugatuck Rowing Club — for the boys eights.

Congratulations, Sami! You definitely know how to rock and row.

    Congratulations, Sami. Enjoy all your wonderful athletic achievements.
    And garner more along the way. Have you thought any of becoming an international rower and travel/row in other countries. A lotta world to see out there.
