MAKING A SPLASH: Princeton University men’s heavyweight rower Blake Parsons, center, helps the Tiger first varsity 8 to a win in a regatta this spring. Parsons, a native of Toronto, Ontario, has gone from an unheralded walk-on as a freshman in 2007 to a mainstay of the Princeton program. He completed his senior campaign last weekend by helping the Princeton first varsity take sixth at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) national championship regatta. Parsons has also competed for Canada’s U-23 national program the last two summers.
