Tregunno, Jane '81 - Rowing

Other schools questioned if Jane Tregunno was even eligible to compete in the CISAA, a question you usually get from those who are being beaten soundly. Female Athlete of the year in her one and only year at Ridley in 1980-81 more than made a name for herself on campus and ultimately made a name for herself in the world of rowing. Though a record setting swimmer at McMaster University, her speed in shell on top of the water earned her Commonwealth Games Gold and World Championship bronze in 1984 while making three consecutive Canadian Olympic teams in 1980, 1984, and 1988 earning an Olympic silver medal at the ’84 games in Los Angeles. A Rowing Canada Award of Merit winner and Subaru Triathlon series winner, Jane still counts among her great sport memories the reverberating ‘Row Blacks Row’ from her schoolmates in the grandstand in Port Dalhousie.
