April 28, 2012
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - The George Washington men's rowing team competed in its final tune-up races before the Eastern Sprints, winning one race and taking second in two races against Georgetown and Rutgers on the Raritan River.
Conditions featured a cross tail-wind with choppy waters for the first 600 meters of the 2,000 meter course.
The afternoon featured four races with GW finishing in second place in the Varsity 8. The Colonials navigated the course in 5:53.8, just 2.6 seconds behind first-place Georgetown. The host Scarlet Knights followed in third place in 6:09.8.
"We raced alright today, but we need to race great in order to beat Georgetown, which has a very fast and talented varsity boat," said Head Coach Mark Davis.
The JV8 boat clinched GW's only win of the day, beating the Hoyas by 3.6 seconds. The Colonials finished in 6:09.8, followed by Georgetown (6:12.4) and Rutgers (6:17.3).
The Colonials' Freshman 8 boat finished in second place (6:05.20), about seven seconds behind Georgetown (5:58.00). Rutgers took third in 6:15.40.
"This was a little bit of a frustrating day with mixed results," said Coach Davis. "We are going to go back Monday morning and work extremely hard to get ready for Eastern Sprints on May 13."
