Happy 4th of July from the BSRA!
Please stay safe on the water and the roads!

Christina “Christa” Dines

Christa was a coxie for nine years. She first tested out the waters at a learn-to-row camp, then joined her high school team (and made lifelong friends), and was recruited as a Division I coxswain to the University of Notre Dame, where she proudly wore the monogram on her unisuit for four years.  

Some of her recognitions include being named a National Scholar Athlete, a member of the Big East All-Academic Team, and a member of the ACC Academic Team. She placed sixth at the Head of the Charles Regatta in the Notre Dame Women’s Championship Eight, was a three-time Big East Gold Medalist Champion, and competed three years at the NCAA Division I National Championship.

While attending Notre Dame Law School, Christa led weekly coxswain meetings, helping coxswains hone their skills. Now back in Buffalo, Christa is an attorney at Hodgson Russ, LLP, and a member of the BSRA Board and Membership Committee.  

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to give her a shout!
