CARCICH'S COMMENTS: "Big thanks to Jack St. Clair for a great regatta with excellent cross conference racing in a consolidated racing format," said head coach Eric Carcich.

We need to go home and continue getting better and take advantage of each day as we progress towards out A-10 championships. I'm excited to get back on the water on Monday."
