GW Men's Rowing Concludes Spring Opener at Penn Invite
Colonials' Freshmen Defeat Georgetown
March 23, 2013
CAMDEN, N.J. - The George Washington men's rowing team concluded its opening weekend at the Pennsylvania Invitational on Saturday on the Cooper River.
In the morning session, the Colonials raced three times against district rival Georgetown. GW's Freshman 8 earned their first win of the season in the opening race against Georgetown's rookie boat.
The Hoyas rebounded for narrow victories in the JV8 and the Varsity 8. In the JV race, the teams were neck-and-neck down the course before the Hoyas moved ahead in the last 500 meters, crossing the finish line roughly one second ahead of the Colonials.
GW's varsity boat fell behind in the first 250 meters before pulling even at the halfway point, but once again Georgetown won the final sprint toward the finish line.
In the afternoon session, Penn swept a trio of races, including the Varsity 8 to win the McCausland Cup for the third season in a row.
The Quakers won the varsity race by a margin of about nine seconds and the JV8 race by about 11 seconds. In the freshmen race, Penn raced two boats and had both finish ahead of the Colonials.
