Men's Rowing Sweeps Georgetown and Rutgers on Saturday
Colonials retain George Cup over Hoyas
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's rowing team took to its home waters for the second time in three weeks and won all four races against Georgetown and Rutgers on Saturday morning on the Potomac River.
Conditions featured flat water with a slight head wind that built to a moderate head throughout racing. The order of racing was 3V8, 2V8, V8, 4V/2F.
3rd Varsity 8
Coach Davis' take: "The 3V8 had a really strong race with good rhythm and it served as a great way to start the day's events with a clear victory over Georgetown and Rutgers."
2nd Varsity 8
Coach Davis' take: "The 2V8 had a solid race. It took them a little while to settle into their rhythm so they need to work on the first part of their race and be able to stay relaxed early in the race and not be so wound up. It was nice to see them battle through and win by open water."
Coach Davis' take:"The Varsity 8 was a bit closer with a win over Georgetown by 4.5 seconds. The Georgetown boat was really strong and it was a very close race up to the halfway point. We slowly moved away from them one stroke at a time. It was a really good race, hats off to the Georgetown crew as they made us work for every inch."
GW A 6:50.30
