DANBURY, Conn. --The University of Pennsylvania's heavyweight and lightweight rowing teams were honored by the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (EARC) this week with the Rusty Callow Award.

The Rusty Callow Award is presented by the EARC each year to the crew that, in the previous year, best personified the virtues of "spirit, courage and unity." The Callow Award has been presented since 1963, and the winner is determined by a vote of the EARC coaches. The Callow Award is named after Rusty Callow, who coached the Quakers heavyweights from 1927-50.

The EARC honored the Yale Varsity Eight as its Heavyweight Crew of the Year and the Cornell Varsity Eight as its Lightweight Crew of the Year. Greg Myhr, former Penn head coach, was named the Heavyweight Coach of the Year, while Chris Kerber (Cornell) was named Lightweight Coach of the Year.
