Women's Rowing Gears-up for A-10 Rowing Championship
April 16, 2009
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials are looking to improve on last season's sixth-place team finish and to place in the top three in many of the events they enter.
The GW women are coming off a disappointing performance at the 22nd George Washington Invitational last weekend. "The team was upset with how they rowed last week and they have been working hard to prepare for this weekend's Atlantic 10 Championship," said head coach Robert McCracken. "The varsity rowers have been more consistent on a daily basis and are expecting more of themselves which has led to a great week of practice. The novices had somewhat of an epiphany a few days ago and have figured out how to push themselves harder. I'm hoping that we can build off this week and have some great performances on Saturday."
The Championship begins at 8:00 am with trials on Saturday on the Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J. Finals will commence at approximately 11:50 am. The Colonials will be racing a varsity eight, varsity four, novice eight and novice four.
Competing in this year's Atlantic 10 Championship with GW are Dayton, Duquesne, Fordham, La Salle, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Saint Joseph's and Temple.
