Madeline Burke, who graduated Verona High School with the class of 2015, was a member of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) women’s rowing team that won the Division III silver medal in this past weekend’s NCAA championship in Indianapolis.

WPI improved its 2018 bronze medal team finish to take second place finishes in the women’s first varsity eight, second varsity eight and team overall. Burke was a senior coxswain of the second varsity eight boat. This was the best performance of any varsity team in WPI’s 125-years history of varsity athletics.

Burke graduated WPI on May 18 with a bachelor of science in computer science with high distinction. She will be starting a job with Liberty Mutual in Boston in the fall.
