PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The 2011 Women's Crew NCAA Division I Championship team was honored at halftime of Saturday's "Governor's Cup" Game between Brown and URI. Over 20 members of the team were at midfield along with head coach John Murphy, associate head coach Phoebe Murphy, Athletic Director Michael Goldberger and University President Ruth J. Simmons.

Over 8,000 fans in attendance cheered the squad as they brought the Division I NCAA trophy on to the field. The Brown football team went on to win the Governor's Cup 35-21 in the second-ever "night game" played at Brown Stadium.

The 2011 title was the seventh for the Brown Women's Crew program in the 15-year history of the NCAA Championship. Bruno has never gone more than two years without a first-place finish and has never finished lower than fifth.
