Plaque includes image of Fallon and a brief biography: "Catriona Fallon was a multi-sport performer at Mercy High in Burlingame in the late 1980's. As a tall, strong youngster, she swam, played basketball and participated in track and field for the Catholic girls' school. But it was in college that Fallon found her sporting niche: rowing. At UCLA, she joined the crew team and quickly developed into a star. She became so proficient that she was chosen to be part of the U.S. Olympic crew team in both 1992 and 1996."
