Men's Rowing Set for ECAC Eastern Sprints
Colonials Seek Faster Times at Conference Championship
May 11, 2012
WORCESTER, Mass. - The George Washington men's rowing team will compete in its conference championships on Sunday at the 67th ECAC Eastern Sprints on Lake Quinsigamond.
"The team is really excited and looking forward to this race," said Head Coach Mark Davis. "Last year we didn't have good racing at this event so this weekend we want to make sure we are racing our best."
The field contains 15 of the top 20 teams in the nation, including perennial powers Navy, Princeton, Yale and Holy Cross.
The Colonials will race three boats - a Varsity 8, JV 8 and Freshman 8 - in the preliminary heats. The top two boats from each heat will advance to the Grand Finals. The boats that finish third and fourth will advance to the Petite Finals while the remaining boats move on to the Third Level Finals.
In the Freshman 8 heat the Colonials will race against Yale, Brown, Dartmouth, MIT and Northeastern. The Colonials' JV 8 will face Penn, Yale, Navy and Wisconsin, while the Varsity 8 rows against Navy, Wisconsin, Boston University, Yale and Holy Cross.
"Our main goal for this weekend is high quality racing among these very strong programs to gauge our true speed and to win some races. We are fired up." said Coach Davis.
GW has already earned an invitation to the prestigious Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championships after winning a gold medal in the Varsity 8 at the Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association (SIRA) Championships in Oak Ridge, Tenn., on April 22. The IRA National Championships will be held May 31-June 2 on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J.
