The George Washington women's rowing team concluded its fall competition schedule with two medals in the annual Head of the Occoquan in Woodbridge, Va., on Saturday.

GW earned a gold medal in the Varsity 4 event and a silver medal in the Varsity 8 in its final weekend of fall racing on the three-mile course on the Occoquan River.

"It was a good day overall with some solid results that we can build off," said Head Coach Eric Carcich. "We are making great progress. We have three more weeks of work to put in before we break for Thanksgiving."

The Colonials entered three boats in the Varsity 8 event, with the top crew taking second place overall out of 33 boats in 17:22.23. GW's other boats finished in 11th and 23rd place, respectively.

GW had four boats entered in the Varsity 4 event, with its top crew blowing away the field by 18 seconds for a resounding first-place finish. The Colonials finished in 19:01.72, defeating a number of Atlantic 10 rivals. The Colonials' other boats finished in 11th, 13th and 21st place, respectively.

GW also competed in the Novice 8 event where a boat full of freshman rowed to a sixth-place finish out of 24 boats in 19:01.67.
