History: Seven Sister Championship play began in November 1980, when Barnard hosted Bryn Mawr, New Rochelle and Vassar in a four team basketball tournament, won by New Rochelle. Following the tournament, the original Seven Sisters institutions - Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar and Wellesley - joined to conduct championships in common sports. Radcliffe (now Harvard in the athletic arena) was invited but opted not to join, and Barnard (now competing as Columbia) was unable participate in all championships. Currently, Seven Sisters Championships are held in crew, cross country, squash, swimming & diving and tennis.
The Founders Trophy was first presented in 1987 and has been awarded to the winning team in each regatta throughout the history of the Seven Sisters Championship. Wellesley claimed the trophy during last year's Championship. The Blue earned victories in both of the Novice races and the Junior Varsity race, and finished second in the Varsity race to finish 11 points ahead of second place Smith. The win was the ninth consecutive title for the Blue.
