Injured Holy Cross Rower Released From Hospital

A member of the Holy Cross women's rowing team injured in a crash in Florida that claimed the life of a teammate has been released from the hospital, the college announced Friday.

Maegan Moriarty, a senior from Old Lyme, Connecticut, was released Thursday, the school posted on its website.

Five other members of the team and a coach remained hospitalized as of midday Friday.

Grace Rett, a sophomore from Uxbridge, Massachusetts, died in Wednesday's crash in Vero Beach, Florida, a day after her 20th birthday.

The team's rented transport van was carrying roughly 12 students when the driver made a left turn into the path of a red truck, police have said.

Holy Cross President the Rev. Philip Boroughs, who has been in Florida since Wednesday, identified the injured as Paige Cohen, Anne Comcowich, Maggie O'Leary, Bianca McIver, Hannah Strom and coach Patrick Diggins. The team was in Florida for training.

"Our community has suffered a terrible loss," Boroughs wrote in an email to the campus community. "Grace's passion and spirit shone brightly in all that she did, and clearly had an impact on all who knew her."
