The nine student-athletes - coxswain Haley Dannehower, Sarah Pickus, Amanda Young, Bethany Grim, Megan Culberson, Anna Kaminski, Annie Morse, Paige Norman and Christine Popp - along with head coach Eric Carcich received championship rings from the Department of Athletics & Recreation and a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd for their memorable run last season.

The Varsity 8 boat swept both is morning heat and the Grand Final at last year's A-10 Championship to clinch GW's first gold medal at the event since 2006. After winning the morning heat by a margin of 4.5 seconds the Colonials went on to dominate the Grand Final, winning by open water, to earn the program's first Varsity 8 title since 2001.
