A 2012 Harvard graduate, Patrick Lapage joins the heavyweight staff for the 2013-14 season. Lapage, a first team All-Ivy selection in 2010 and 2011, helped the Crimson varsity eight to a bronze medal at the 2012 IRA National Championships, locking up Harvard's second-straight top-three national finish.
With Lapage in the stroke seat, Harvard completed a perfect dual season for the varsity eight, including the squad's fifth-straight sweep of Yale. At EARC Sprints, the Crimson V8 took second by less than a half second and contributed to the Rowe Cup win.
A native of Shrewsbury, England, Lapage has also seen international success. Lapage won a bronze medal racing with Great Britain's eight at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Amsterdam and also took home bronze with the men's coxed four at the 2010 World Rowing U23 Championships in Brest, Belarus.
