March 28, 2008
EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - George Washington Women's Rowing kicks off its spring season this Saturday, March 29 with races against fellow Eastern Sprints member Rutgers University. Races will take place on the Raritan River in New Brunswick, NJ with the first race, the Novice Four, scheduled for 1:45 pm. Also scheduled are the Novice Eight at 2:00 pm, Second Varsity Eight at 2:15 pm, and the Varsity Eight at 2:30 pm.
GW's novice crews enter their first collegiate spring race eager with anticipation under the leadership of first-year Novice coach Maria Bokulich. This is the first year many of the novices have rowed and they are ready to see what racing is all about. The varsity crews hope to build off a strong winter of training and hope to improve on their performance from last year.
"Everyone is ready to get the season started," said head coach Robert McCracken. "After spending the past several weeks practicing, we are all looking forward to seeing how we stack up against outside competition. The race will give us a good indication of where we are speed wise as we start the season."
